Junglee Pictures and Roy Kapur Films have produced several concept-driven films that have gained critical and popular recognition. The studios are now collaborating to create a unique comedy-drama tale with a brand-new starring pair. The film wo Ladki Hai Kahaan?, written and directed by Arshad Syed, brings Taapsee Pannu and Pratik Gandhi together for the first time.
In her first humorous part, Taapsee Pannu, who has made a name for herself with her dramatic performances, will play a furious cop. Pratik Gandhi, praised for Scam 1992, will play a young wedded scion of a 'Masala' tycoon family in a new role. From their shoot in Jaipur, the directors have provided the first glimpse at the film's cast.
"We are thrilled to cooperate with Junglee Pictures, which has a remarkable track record of backing innovative and exciting tales," Siddharth Roy Kapur, producer and managing director of Roy Kapur Films, said of his collaboration with Junglee Pictures. Their enthusiasm for the subject was palpable in Arshad's script narration, and I am looking forward to a fruitful relationship." RKF now has the war-action epic Pippa on the sets in Bengal and a slew of other films and series on the horizon.
"Having a cast of amazing performers like Taapsee Pannu and Pratik Gandhi has improved my cinematic career," Arshad Syed says of his directorial debut and delivering his story to such an engaging ensemble. Our film's comedy fodder is the characters they're portraying. The entire team is ecstatic to get a first look at their roles."
