The female lead is yet to be disclosed but she will be definitely someone who could match up Ali’s personality.
Speaking about being roped in for the film, Ali said: “‘Arranged Marriage’ is a unique modern day love story set in Kolkata.
It’s a twisted tale between the couple and has its own complexities that will be beautifully explored by Pradeep sir on a larger canvas.
We have just begun filming in Kolkata.
It’s the modern world, it’s 2018, it does touch upon some very essential phases of love, relationships, families that are involved in marriage and how important it is that where what these families come from.”
“But I am very very excited to work with my co-actors. I don’t know if I am allowed to name them now.
It’s an honour and privilege to work with a veteran director and writer Pradeep dada who has given such powerful and meaningful cinema and has worked with some of the best talents of India cinema,” he added.
Ali will next be seen in Excel Entertainment’s web-series Mirzapur and was praised for his performance in the international project Victoria & Abdul.
