Applause Entertainment & Ellipsis Entertainment on casting Vidya Balan, Pratik Gandhi, Ileana D’Cruz & Sendhil Ramamurthy in their next
Vidya Balan, Pratik Gandhi, Ileana D’ Cruz, and Indian-American sensation Sendhil Ramamurthy are all set to fire up the screens in an upcoming, yet untitled romantic comedy-drama. The film will be directed by leading ad filmmaker, Shirsha Guha Thakurta. Vidya took to her Instagram to share the announcement. It was today, on November 11 that the makers made an official announcement about the film. Talking about the film, it is a progressive, uninhibited take on modern relationships which marks Applause’s foray into the big screen experience and this second collaboration with Ellipsis (after the Tahira Kashyap Khurrana-directed Sharmajee Ki Beti).
Producers Tanuj Garg, Atul Kasbekar and Swati Iyer, partners at Ellipsis Entertainment state, “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.”
Meanwhile, Vidya Balan and Ileana D’Cruz shared pictures with the cast and announced their next. Vidya wrote, “”Stoked about my next – an untitled charming drama-comedy about modern relationships, which promises to be either your story or the story of your friend. It will make you laugh and cry in equal measure and I’m enjoying playing Kavya to the hilt. Delighted to be directed by @shirshagt and to have such an amazing posse of co-actors – @pratikgandhiofficial @ileana_official and @sendhil_rama. (sic)”

Director Shirsha Guha Thakurta tells us, “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 starring Vidya Balan, Pratik Gandhi, Ileana D’ Cruz, and Sendhil Ramamurthy is currently filming in locations across Mumbai and Ooty.
