As per media reports, Pavitra Rishta actor Asha Negi has been roped in to play the lead opposite Abhishek Bachchan in Anurag Basu’s anthology.
Though much is not known about her role and look, a source had told an Indian news portal:
“Abhishek doesn’t have a heroine opposite him in the film. In fact, his is the only segment in the anthology that doesn’t have a romantic angle.”
Speaking about his role in the film, a source informs a news daily:
“Abhishek plays a local goon. Hence, he has this look throughout the film. The plot revolves around his backstory, which is quite emotional.”
Sharing a few words about the film, Anurag told the media:
“I am extremely happy to have found this talented new generation cast, though I will trust my old friend Pritam for music as always.”
On the other hand, producer Bhushan Kumar expressed:
“The characters, the story is so compelling yet the treatment is so amusing.
We have tried to bring on board a terrific cast who perfectly fit the roles that are written.”
In addition to Bachchan, the anthology features Rajkummar Rao, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sanya Malhotra and Pankaj Tripathi in the leading roles.
The Manmarziyaan actor shot for the film in Mumbai and Kolkata while his look from the sets was leaked a few months back.
