Diljit Dosanjh, who made his Bollywood debut in Abhishek Chaubey’s Udta Punjab is already on board for Dinesh Vijan’s quirky cop comedy Arjun Patiala and Karan Johar’s Good News. Now we hear that Diljit has been roped in for a yet-untitled comedy film, which will be produced by Ramesh Taurani. Yami Gautam, who is riding high on the success of Uri: The Surgical Strike and is currently filming Bala with Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar, will be his leading lady.
The duo will be sharing screen space for the first time, in this comedy film which will mark the directorial debut of Aziz Mirza’s son Haroon. He had earlier assisted his father on Shah Rukh Khan starrer Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman, Yes Boss and Amol Palekar directed Paheli.
Ramesh Taurani confirmed the news that he will be producing the yet-untitled movie, he said to a leading daily that,
“Yes, Diljit and Yami have given their nod to the film. It’s a fresh pairing and we are excited because both are competent actors with impeccable comic timing. It is a sensible comedy and revolves around a couple.”
He added that the film has an interesting story and will go on floors in August. The movie is one of the last films penned by Hera Pheri and Bhool Bhulaiyaa’s screenplay writer Neeraj Vora who passed away in 2017 after he had slipped into a coma in October 2016. He has co-written the script with Vibha Singh and Arshad Sayed.
Yami and Diljit have always managed to impress us with their acting skills and we cannot wait to watch them together for the first time.
