After charming us with Sherni, Vidya Balan is coming back to entertain us with some comedy. Co-starring with Pratik Gandhi of the Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story fame, Ileana D’Cruz and Hollywood sensation Sendhil Ramamurthy, Vidya is super excited about this project and has shared the same on her social media account. The untitled romantic-comedy drama will be directed by the well-known ad-filmmaker Shirsha Guha Thakurta and it seems like a complete package.
Revealing that she would be playing the character of Kavya, Vidya shared the post showing her delight. Similarly, Pratik also expressed his happiness on working again with his Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story producers and mentioned that he will be playing the character of Ani.

Even Sendhil is super happy as this one is his third outing with Tanuj Garg of Ellipsis Entertainment, along with Atul Kasbekar and Swati Iyer, which has collaborated with Sameer Nair of Applause Entertainment.
Sameer Nair, CEO, Applause Entertainment expressed:
The film is a sparkling, sophisticated romance that subverts all notions of love and fidelity in modern times. While alchemy best describes the coming together of this incredible cast, we’re thrilled to collaborate with Shirsha Guha Thakurta, who has an extraordinarily perceptive understanding of human relationships. We’re also excited to partner with Ellipsis once again, to bring this witty, charming and passionate story to life.
Producers Tanuj Garg, Atul Kasbekar and Swati Iyer, partners at Ellipsis Entertainment said:
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.
Director Shirsha Guha Thakurta said:
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.
This Shirsha Guha Thakurta directorial is currently being filmed across Mumbai and Ooty. And with stars like Vidya Balan, Ileana D’Cruz, Pratik Gandhi and Sendhil Ramamurthy in the leads, I am sure this will be a fun comedy with a bit of drama.
