Bollywood actor Rajkummar Rao announced that he is all set to star in Anurag Basu’s next. The actor on Thursday, January 17, took to social media and revealed that he is all set to share screen space with 'Dangal' actress Fatima Sana Shaikh for Basu's upcoming directorial venture. He also gave his fans a glimpse of the project as he shared a picture on Twitter where he and the actress can be seen standing beside a lake of what appears to be a heritage city recreating the dance movies of the '90s. In the picture which features the actors from the backside, the actor can be seen sporting an olive and black shirt, denim and black boots, while Fatima goes completely tradition wearing a maroon saree.
Teasing the making of the film, Rajkummar captioned the Twitter post saying, "Bahut jaldee saamane aayenge aap logon ke. Tab tak ke lie ek jhalak | #AnuragBasu sir’s next with @fattysanashaikh"
Here's the post:
Although makers have not released many details about the film, media reports suggest that the yet untitled venture is made on the lines of his 2007 hit film 'Life In A Metro'. Reportedly, the film will be narrating stories of four individuals from four different parts of the country. Apart from Rajkummar and Fatima, the multi-starrer venture also features Abhishek Bachchan, Aditya Roy Kapoor and Pankaj Tripathi in lead roles. Media reports suggest that the cast and crew began the shooting of the first schedule of the film in Bhopal on Monday.
This is going to be the flirt time where Rajkummar and Fatima are paired up for a film. Fatima made her last appearance in 2018's action-adventure drama 'Thugs of Hindostan' alongside Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif and Amitabh Bachchan. Meanwhile, Rajkummar Rao, who was praised widely for his performance in Shraddha Kapoor starrer 'Stree' has a number of films in the pipeline including 'Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga', 'Mental Hai Kya' and 'Made in China'.
