Raashi Khanna turns TV serial actor for Pakka Commercial
Directed by Maruthi, the film also stars Gopichand as a lawyer
After playing Angel Aarna, a TikTok obsessed girl in Prathi Roju Pandaage, Raashi Khanna is gearing up to essay yet another comic role in director Maruthi's upcoming film, Pakka Commercial. She will be seen as a television serial actor in the film that also features Gopichand as a lawyer.
"Raashi Khanna will be seen as a young woman who is addicted to television serials. The impact is so huge that her thoughts and mannerisms are of those TV characters that she has admired over the years. Things turn interesting when she ends up joining the TV industry as a mega serial actor," says a source close to the development.
The film is said to be a laugh riot and Raashi's role will be a hilarious take on such characters. "Raashi's situation comedy will add to the humour in the scenes. She is fascinated with the way her character has been etched by Maruthi and believes that it will strike a chord with the audience," the source adds.
Pakka Commercial went on floors earlier this week and the shooting is currently progressing at a college in Hyderabad old city.
Sathyaraj, who earlier worked with Gopichand in Sankham, has been roped in for a crucial role in the film. Produced under GA2 Pictures, Pakka Commercial will hit the screens on October 1.
