Kajal plays a doctor in Sharwa’s next
The Sudheer Varma-directorial will have two timelines, and Kajal stars opposite Sharwa in the modern portion, while Kalyani Priyadarshan plays the female lead in the period portions
For the first time in her career, Kajal Aggarwal is portraying the role of a doctor in her upcoming yet-to-be-titled film directed by Sudheer Varma. Set in two timelines -- one between the late 80s and early 90s, and the other in the present time period, the crime drama shows Sharwanand in two distinct shades as a village youngster and a 40-year-old rugged gangster.
“Kajal plays a doctor who falls in love with Sharwa in the present time period. She will be seen in a modern avatar mirroring the current generation. The sequences involving the duo will leave the audience in splits,” says a source.
Kalyani Priyadarshan, who made her debut with Hello, is playing the other lead opposite Sharwa in the period era. “Kalyani will be sporting a traditional look wearing ethnic wear and her retro portions with Sharwa will appear as a flashback,” the source adds.
The team has recently wrapped up a schedule each in Kakinada, Visakhapatnam and will soon resume the shoot in a specially constructed set in Hyderabad. Prashanth Pillai is scoring the music for the film, which is being produced by Naga Vamsi.
