Applause Entertainment and Ellipsis Entertainment have teamed up to bring together a fantastic quartet – Vidya Balan, Pratik Gandhi, Ileana D’ Cruz, and Indian-American sensation Sendhil Ramamurthy – who are all set to light up the screens in an upcoming, yet untitled romantic comedy-drama directed by leading ad film-maker Shirsha Guha Thakurta.
With the pairing of the stunning Vidya Balan and Pratik Gandhi, who soared to popularity with Applause’s own breakout production, Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story, the cast is eclectic and electric. The stunning Ileana D’Cruz and Hollywood heartthrob Sendhil Ramamurthy round up this remarkable foursome.

The film, which is a progressive, unrestrained take on modern relationships, is Applause’s first excursion into the big screen, and this second collaboration with Ellipsis (after Tahira Kashyap Khurrana’s Sharmajee Ki Beti) promises to be the perfect date movie in 2022.
Director Shirsha Guha Thakurta says, “When I first heard this story, I was instantly attracted to its universe- honest, funny and so today. The actors have been a dream to work with. Their generosity is something I will always cherish. My producers (Applause and Ellipsis) have been extremely supportive and stood by me like a rock. Yes, I’m nervous, but this journey so far has been truly special.”
The film is currently filming in locations across Mumbai and Ooty.
