To make a great film all you need is a great story and cast. And despite having a great script if you pick up a wrong cast and vice versa, your film is bound to tank at the box office.
2017 hasn’t been a great year for Bollywood with so many films failing despite big star cast. But looks like someone has just announced the cast of the year and we totally love the idea of seeing them sharing screen space together.
Well, you ain’t really a millennial if you don’t know who Mithila Palkar is. She is one of the most influential and favourite internet beings. From presenting the traditional Marathi folk song with cup beats to entertaining us in web series like Little Things and Girl In The City, she is one hell of an entertainer. And finally, she is all set to rock the silver-screen as well. We ain’t kidding, she has signed a film and we are too excited.
Thank you for this amazing feature @rollingstonein ! ðŸ‘— @pepejeansindia ðŸ“¸ @juietakesphotos

She also did a Marathi film opposite Amey Wagh, Muramba and now she will be seen with none other than Irrfan Khan. Isn’t that great? Well, that’s not it, making his debut in the same film will be Malayalam super star Dulquer Salmaan.

Now doesn’t that really sound like a great cast and we just wonder what the script might be. After all these three together, the film already shouts ‘hit-hit-hit’. We already have very high hopes from the movie.
The film will also mark the directorial debut for Akarsh Khurana and will be produced by Ronnie Screwala.
Mithila also shared a post on Instagram and wrote, “Living the Bollywood Dream alongside these supremely talented superstars.”

When asked about the casting Akarsh Khurana told TOI, “I have been following Dulquer for a while after Mani Ratnam’s O Kadhal Kanmani. And I really loved his movie, Charlie. He has showcased a fantabulous performance in it. Then I watched his movies, Bangalore days, Kammattipaadam and so on…He is the perfect cast for the movie.”
And here’s what he has to say about the characters, “The characters are from different walks of life who come together at one juncture of their lives.”
