According to the reports, comedian Sunil Grover will be joining the cast of Vishal Bharadwaj’s upcoming film ‘Chhuriyaan’. This is a two female lead film about the sibling rivalry as it stars Sanya Malhotra and Radhika Mane. Set in Rajasthan, shooting of the film will be starting in a few days. Vijay Raaz has also joined the cast as the father of these two girls while the detailed sketch of Sunil’s role is not available yet. Sunil would be playing an important role in the film which would have only tad bit of comedy as of other Vishal films.
Actors have now started working on their Rajasthani dialect to get it as authentic as possible and film will be shot in two extensive schedules with one taking place in a town 50 kms from Jaipur while the other one would in Mount Abu. Sanya is awaiting the release of her second film called ‘Badhai Ho’ with Ayushman Khurana and ‘Chhuriyaan’ would be the third one. She seems to be going for the more content driven cinema while Fatima will be showing up in Aamir Khan starrer spectacle called ‘Thugs of Hindostan’.
Vishal was suppose to be making a film on Sapna Didi starring Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan but since Irrfan is battling his disease in London producers have only temporarily shelved the film and shall re-open it when Irrfan is back. Sunil has never really worked in the film of this gravitas by a film maker who is highly acclaimed but no one could possible deny his acting talent as he played many characters in ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil’ and became the light of the show. His role in this film would be more dramatic than the funny and that too not the loud comedy form of which he is so used to.
