Bollywood actors Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Athiya Shetty have come together for the wedding comedy 'Motichoor Chaknachoor'. The duo has commenced the shooting of the film and it is quite an unusual pair to watch on screen. Athiya and Nawaz began shooting for the film recently, and a major portion of it is set in Bhopal and will be shot there. The film is basically about weddings and relationships.
'Motichoor Chaknachoor' marks the directorial debut of the popular television director Debamitra Hassan on the big screen. The film is expected to wrap up by the end of the year or early January 2019.
According to reports, Athiya will be seen playing a small-town north Indian woman, and she has undergone rigorous training under a language coach to perfect her dialect and accent for the role. The actress who made her debut with the 2015 film 'Hero' opposite Sooraj Pancholi and then featured in the ensemble cast of 'Mubarakan' co-starring Arjun Kapoor is yet to make her mark in Bollywood. Perhaps 'Motichoor Chaknachoor' alongside Nawazuddin Siddiqui could fetch her the critical acclaim as an actress.
The film which is being produced by Rajesh Bhatia and helmed by debutant director Debamitra Hassan as a lot to expect out of. Debamitra has extensive experience working in the television industry. The producer earlier in an interview had disclosed that Debamitra has been working on the screenplay and dialogue for the last three years. He had even stated that he and the team were very impressed with the humorous story of an unlikely couple. There is a lot of situational comedy that plays out between the bride and the groom’s families and Nawaz playing the hero makes it all the more exciting.
Well, the official release date is yet to be announced but it is speculated that the film will have a mid-2019 release. One can look forward to a laughter riot starring this unusual pairing.
