English Vinglish was one hell of a comeback for Sridevi but it also did wonders for the careers of a lot of others. Priya Anand, who got rave reviews for her role as Sridevi’s niece, has just landed herself a lead role in Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s upcoming flick, Fukrey. The young, fun comic caper will also have Richa Chaddha as the other female lead.
I also love that the movie has Manjot Singh who was totally awesome as the young Lucky in Oye Lucky Lucky Oye. Priya, who’s super excited about her her second big B-town flick will be seen opposite hottie Pulkit Samrat in Fukrey (love the title) which is about friends and will be shot in my favorite city, Delhi (yay!). I can’t wait to see Priya (who’s a very successful actress down south) win us over again with her memerzing acting skills. With an interesting mix of actors, debutant director Mrigdeep Singh Lamba and Excel Entertainment’s endeavour to always experiment with fascinating scripts, this one sure looks like a winner.
