Bollywood is an ever-evolving film industry. It has been observed that filmmakers nowadays have started making bold choices of picking up social issues or addressing stigmas in our Indian society and portraying it on the silver screen. Continuing the trend of making films about social stigmas around beauty, writers Anil Rodhan and Kunal Mandekar are making a film that will star Randeep Hooda and Ileana D’Cruz. Read on to know more about it.
It has been reported that actors Randeep Hooda and Ileana D’Cruz would be pairing up together on the silver screen for the first time for a film titled Unfair and Lovely. The story is set in the districts of Haryana and Ileana would be portraying the role of a dusky young woman named Lovely. Her character would be seen struggling and battling with deep-rooted societal prejudices against fair skin or lighter skin tones. The film is a comedy thriller film.
When Ileana D’Cruz was asked by a media portal about the same, Ileana revealed that she is very excited that she landed the role and described it as a very relatable character. She said that she is aware that the character needs to be portrayed with a lot of sensitivity and she assured her fans that the movie will leave them with a smile.
Actor Randeep Hooda who has always been seen in intense roles was equally thrilled about working in a genre he has never done before. Last seen in a special role in Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal (2020), the actor has reportedly started shooting for Unfair and Lovely in Karnal, Haryana. The movie is directed by Balwinder Singh Janjua and is being produced by his banner, Movie Tunnel Productions.
