Rishi Kapoor’s first look from ‘Mulq’ will amp up your curiosity. SEE PIC

Last night, actor Rishi Kapoor shared the first look from his upcoming movie ‘Mulq’. He shared the look on his Twitter page and that too has a display picture with the hashtag #NewProfilePic

With the long beard and a serious expression on his face, the look has definitely amped up the curiosity level. ‘Mulq’ is a social thriller which also stars Neena Gupta (as his wife), Taapsee Panu, Prateik Babbar and Rajat Kapur. It will be shot in Varanasi and Lucknow and is slated to release early next year. Filmmaker Anubhav Sinha will direct the project and it will be produced by Benaras Media Works. Screenplay writer-producer Mushtaq Sheikh will be the associate producer. (Also Read: Rishi Kapoor wishes Big B on his birthday with a new poster of ‘102 Not Out’)

Rishi Kapoor shot a scene at a palace in Luchnow where iconic movies like ‘Junoon’, ‘Umrao Jaan’ and ‘Gadar: Ek Prem Katha’ were shot. Speaking to IANS recently, Anubhav Sinha said, “I had no idea. I had simply liked the place when I was on a recce there. It was the locals who recently told me about these iconic films being shot there. I must have been 12 or 13 when Shyam Babu was shooting ‘Junoon’ there. This place houses the history of cinema. The mango orchards spread over miles and the locals actually adhere to the Lucknavi ‘tehzeeb’ of ‘pehle aap’. Recently, I complained about the unit tea and within 15 minutes, 30 cups came from someone’s home,”

Speaking about his actors, he said, “Taapsee and Rishi ji have earlier worked in ‘Chashme Baddoor’ and share a great rapport. Rishi ji is a chilled out person, doesn’t carry the aura of Rishi Kapoor and is very friendly with everyone. We are on a start to finish schedule and by mid-November will return to Mumbai after the shoot ends.”

If Rishi Kapoor’s look is anything to go by, then we definitely can’t wait for ‘Mulq’
