Shruti Haasan and Rajkummar Rao will be seen together for the first time in a romantic comedy titled ‘Behen Hogi Teri’. Ajay K Pannalal, who has directed a few Punjabi hits, will be guiding this unusual pair.
Rao is switching into the full-on commercial cinema, apparently from ‘serious-kind of cinema’. A source explains the choice as,
The film is based in Lucknow and Rajkummar has the right look and feel that fits the main character. Shruti has an incredible role, too. Moreover, the two have never been cast together before. Obviously, the filmmakers are excited.
Talking about the film, one of the producer, Amul Vikas Mohan says:
BHT is a fun film with a big heart. We have spent a lot of time getting the story right because that’s our number-one priority. We were lucky to get a great cast which we are sure will really surprise and entice the audiences. Shooting begins in December.
Shootings of the film will wrap up by January 2017. Let’s see what flavor the serious actor mix in comedy.
