Heard this? Athiya Shetty to star opposite Nawazuddin Siddiqui in a wedding comedy
Powerhouse performer Nawazuddin Siddiqui and two-films-old actress Athiya Shetty are all set to star together in ‘Motichoor Chaknachoor’. Helmed by debutant director Debamitra Hassan, the film is an eccentric wedding comedy which will go on floors this year and its shooting will take place in Lucknow.
The film’s producer Rajesh Bhatia told Mumbai Mirror, “The film will mark the directorial debut of Debamitra Hassan, who has worked extensively in the television industry. We have signed a three-film deal with her. As a production house, we are looking at producing five films until 2019.”
The producer further added, “My team and I were very impressed with this humorous story of an unlikely couple. There is a lot of situational comedy that plays out between the bride and the groom’s families and Nawaz playing the hero makes it all the more exciting.”
Reportedly Nawazuddin was so impressed by the film’s script that he agreed to come on board within a few minutes of the film’s narration. In this wedding comedy, Athiya will be seen playing a typical North Indian, small-town girl and she will apparently undergo training for her diction and language.
Last seen in ‘Babumoshai Bandookbaaz’, Nawaz currently features in the web series ‘Sacred Games’ while Athiya Shetty who was last seen in ‘Mubarakan’ is also prepping up for a biopic titled ‘Hope Solo’.
Well, we are quite excited to see this unlikely pair of Nawaz and Athiya on-screen. What about you guys?
