Saiyami Kher to debut in Marathi with Mauli
The actor was last seen in Mirzya, opposite Harshavardhan Kapoor in 2016
Mirzya actor Saiyami Kher will make her Marathi film debut opposite Riteish Deshmukh in his next production and acting venture titled Mauli. The film, directed by Aditya Sarpotdar, is produced under Riteish's banner Mumbai Film Company.
It's especially a happy moment for Saiyami, as with Mauli, she will carry forward the Marathi legacy of her grandmother and veteran actor Usha Kiran.
Tanvi Azmi's niece, Sayami seems to be sharing some more common ground with her as Tanvi, too, made her Marathi debut with Riteish. She played the role of his mother in Lai Bhari.
Saiyami, born and brought up in Nashik, says she is delighted to work in a film in her mother tongue Marathi."Riteish very successfully introduced a new genre of action/drama to Marathi cinema with Lai Bhari. Mauli is a film which will always be very close to my heart because it takes me back to my Maharashtrian roots. I will really miss my grandmother on this journey because she would have been very proud to see my Marathi debut. I'm really excited and seek everyone's good wishes and blessings," she says.
Riteish says the team was looking for a fresh face to cast in Mauli. "We found that in Saiyami. She is young, vivacious and fits the character perfectly. We are extremely excited to collaborate with her and looking forward to working with her," he says.
The film, scheduled to release early in 2019, is already on floors and Saiyami is scheduled to join the team soon.
