Ishita Raaj to star in Raaj Shaandilyaa, Sandeep Singh's next production

Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety and Pyaar Ka Punchnama actor Ishita Raaj has been roped in to essay the role of a news anchor and narrator, who takes the story forward, in an untitled film produced by Raaj Shaandilyaa and Sandeep Singh.

The film, based on a true event, is described as an emotional drama 'showcasing the mentality of today's youth and society at large, and the courage it takes to stand your ground and speak against discrimination.'

Scheduled to commence in January 2023, the film will be extensively shot in Maharashtra and Bihar. It is written by Anil Choudhary, Chaitanya Tulsyan and Sam Khan.

Speaking about the film, Ishita shares, "It’s a different genre I’ll be seen in. A role that's challenging for any actress. When I read the script I instantly knew I had to do it. I can’t reveal anything right now, but the film will certainly leave the viewers astounded."

Producer Raaj Shaandilyaa says, "Sandeep and I go back a long way, and this film is very special to me. He adds, "This kind of story needs to be told to bring about an awareness in the youth. I am absolutely convinced and thoroughly believe in the message the film has to put across. And Ishita Raaj is perfect for the role. I have great  expectations from her. She is one actress to watch out for."

Producer Sandeep Singh shares, "Ever since he made Dream Girl, Raaj has always maintained an encouraging and supporting attitude towards newcomers. A quality I relate to.""As for Ishita," he says, 'She is the new age Rani Mukherjee. Ideally, I should have worked with her much earlier. But as they say better late than never. The character she plays will take the audience by surprise. Also, she is sharp and  passionate about acting and cinema, a filmmaker's delight."

 The film is presented by ThinkInk Picturez and Legend Studios. The co-producers are Vimal K Lahoti and Zafar Mehdi.
