Comedian Sunil Grover In Vishal Bhardwaj’s ‘Chhuriyaan’
Comedian Sunil Grover popularly known as Dr. Mashoor Gulati has bagged Vishal Bhardwaj’s ‘Chhuriyaan’. The actor will play the lead in the film alongside Mere Aashiqui Tumse Hi star Radhika Madan and Dangal fame Sanya Malhotra. It was earlier announced that actor vijay raaz will be teaming up with Vishal after four years to play the father of the female leads of the film.
Talking about Sunil’s character, Vishal told The Indian Express, “I am very happy to have Sunil Grover and Vijay Raaz as the two unconventional male leads of my film. Sunil plays a crucial and major part.”
Sunil Grover has played supporting roles in various films but ‘Chhuriyaan’ will be his first film as a lead. Chhuriyaan is reportedly the story of two sisters (Malhotra and Madan) who are at loggerheads with each other. As far as Sunil’s role is concerned, while he has not been paired opposite any of the female leads, he plays the other important lead in the film.
“All the actors are already learning a beautiful Rajasthani dialect for their roles. Since the narrative has a lot of scope for music, I am working on a five-six song album, packed with folklore and Rajasthani flavour. There will also be a very interesting dance number that I am looking forward to in the film,” Vishal told Mumbai Mirror in an interview.
Chhuriyaan is also reported to go on floors in the village of Raunsi by the end of this month.
