Kaashvie Nair, who had earlier assisted filmmaker Nikkhil Advani on his sports-drama “Patiala House” and the 2013 action thriller “D-Day”, and also co-directed the TV series “POW: Bandi Yuddh Ke”, will be making her feature film debut as a director with this upcoming film.

Arjun said that when the film’s team gave him a narration, he knew instantly that it was a special script.

“I have grown up in a joint family, so I understood that it’s the biggest pillar of love, strength and support. That’s the essence of our film, which has its heart in the right place. I’m having a blast even during the prep,” said the son of producer Boney Kapoor.

Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Monisha Advani, Madhu Bhojwani, Nikkhil Advani and John Abraham, the film will go on floors this month.

“It is a coming-of-age, cross-border love story, beautifully written by Anuja Chauhan, Amitosh Nagpal and Kaashvie. It will be shot extensively in Punjab and Los Angeles and will feature Arjun and Rakul in never-seen-before avatars. We will be locking the title and the release date soon,” said Nikkhil.

Richa Chadha: Humour a natural way of expressing myself

Mumbai– Actress Richa Chadha, whose comic timing in “Fukrey” was lauded by many, says humour is a fairly natural and organic way of expressing oneself.

Richa now aims to take her love for humour to the next level, by appearing in the comic show, “One Mic Stand”. For the show, she has been mentored by comedians Sapan Verma and Ashish Shakya.

“I love to see people laugh. It is truly a joyous thought to stand on stage and spread humour with your words. To know, I can do so is such a satisfying feeling,” said Richa.

“I have dabbled in stand-up comedy before, very briefly. But it was quite a challenge taking this on. Sapan and Ashish have been admirable mentors, pushing me to do better at each step. They have distinctly different styles and I imbibed a lot from their individual style. It has been both daunting and exciting to take it up professionally, even though for a brief while and learning from the experts,” she added.

“Humour, for me, is a fairly natural and organic way of expressing myself. I struggled with how much of myself to reveal, because I am aware people think of me as a very serious person. So it was confusing, it is an experiment for me at best, but then I owe my career to experimentation,” she said.

Richa’s last release was the critically acclaimed “Section 375”, starring Akshaye Khanna. She will soon be seen in Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s “Panga”, starring Kangana Ranaut.(IANS)
