Saiyami Kher who marked her debut in Mirzya opposite Harshvardhan Kapoor now makes her Marathi film debut in Riteish Deshmukh‘s next production and acting venture, Mauli. Saiyami will carry forward the Marathi legacy of her grandmother and veteran actress Usha Kiran by starring opposite Riteish in MAULI directed by Aditya Sarpotdar.
“Delighted to work in a language that I am very proud of… my mother tongue Marathi. That too opposite Riteish in his home production. Riteish very successfully introduced a new genre of Action/ Drama to Marathi cinema with Lai Bhari. MAULI is a film which will always be very close to my heart because it takes me back to my Maharashtrian roots. I will really miss my grandmom on this journey because she would have been very proud to see my Marathi debut. I’m really excited and seek everyone’s good wishes and blessings.”
Talking about casting Saiyami, producer and leading man Riteish Deshmukh says:
“We were looking for a fresh face to cast in Mauli and we found that in Saiyami. She is young, vivacious & fits the character of a ‘Fire Brand Marathi Mulgi’ to the tee. We are extremely excited to collaborate with her & looking forward to working with her.”
Mauli is already on floors and Saiyami is scheduled to join the team soon and kickstart her Marathi film journey. Mauli is scheduled to release early in 2019.
