Vidya Balan, Pratik Gandhi, Ileana D’Cruz and Sendhil Ramamurthy are going to collaborate for their upcoming untitled romantic comedy-drama, to be directed by ad-film director Shirsha Guha Thakurata.
Applause Entertainment and Ellipsis Entertainment collaborate to bring together a fantastic quartet – Vidya Balan, Pratik Gandhi, Ileana D’Cruz and Indian-American actor Sendhil Ramamurthy for the upcoming untitled film.
The casting is eclectic and electrifying, with the coming together of Vidya Balan and Pratik Gandhi, who shot into overnight stardom with Applause’s very own breakthrough show, ‘Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story’ (2020). Ileana D’Cruz and Hollywood actor Sendhil Ramamurthy also turn up their incredible charm and add to this absolute cracker of a foursome.
The film, a progressive, uninhibited take on modern relationships, marks Applause’s foray into the big screen experience and this second collaboration with Ellipsis promises to be 2022’s ultimate date movie.
Sameer Nair, CEO of Applause Entertainment said, “The film is a sparkling, sophisticated romance that subverts all notions of love and fidelity in modern times. While alchemy best describes the coming together of this incredible cast, we’re thrilled to collaborate with Shirsha Guha Thakurta, who has an extraordinarily perceptive understanding of human relationships. We’re also excited to partner with Ellipsis once again, to bring this witty, charming and passionate story to life.”
Producers Tanuj Garg, Atul Kasbekar and Swati Iyer, partners at Ellipsis Entertainment stated, “The subject of love remains intriguing and debated. We were keen to tackle relationship fatigue by coming up with something that is dynamic, nuanced, relatable, uplifting and humorous, all in the same breath. This is probably the story of your life or definitely one that you’ve seen one or more of your friends go through. With a formidable cast, script and director, Applause and Ellipsis are truly excited about this multi-starrer.”
Director Shirsha Guha Thakurta said, “When I first heard this story, I was instantly attracted to its universe- honest, funny and so today. The actors have been a dream to work with. Their generosity is something I will always cherish. My producers (Applause and Ellipsis) have been extremely supportive and stood by me like a rock. Yes, I’m nervous, but this journey so far has been truly special.”
The film is currently filming in locations across Mumbai and Ooty.
