Not much is known about Keke’s role in Good Fortune as of now. In a statement, Ansari said, “Keke is a delight to work with. I’m so happy she’s a part of our cast and even more excited to provide a quote for this press release announcing her casting.”
According to Deadline, the shoot of Good Fortune originally began in May but was forced to suspend production due to WGA pickets. Keke was originally set to star in Ansari’s previous directorial debut at Searchlight Being Mortal. However, that movie was shut down by the studio over alleged inappropriate conduct by star Bill Murray.
Speaking about Ansari, Keke said, “I had a wonderful time filming. Aziz Ansari is one of the coolest people that I ever met. That was the coolest experience, but I don’t know anything more than that”.
