Shilpa Shetty says her first film as producer has taught her various lessons

NEW DELHI: Bollywood actress turned producer Shilpa Shetty Kundra says: “I never thought that my first film will be an action-mystery. I always thought that if ever I make a film it would be a comedy or a love story. But I loved the script of Dishkiyaaoon so much that I wanted people to know the story ".

 

Addressing a press meet here, she said "Harman Baweja and and Ayesha Khanna are both great actors and extremely good looking, so there is bound to be chemistry that shoots through the roof".

 

Releasing with the tagline “Aadmi bardha ho ya chhota, koi farak nahi pardhta bas uski kahani bardhi honi chahiye”, the film is about the story of two small men who are on their way to make it big in the world of crime. The story revolves around a gangster Viki Kartoos (Harman Baweja) and action man Lakwa (Sunny Deol).

 

Actor Sunny Deol who is known for angry ‘avatars’ in Bollywood would be seen as a powerful man with a Haryanvi touch in the film. Harman Baweja would be seen as a gangster in the movie. Though from the first promos the movie looks like any other movie in the action crime genre, Deol’s ‘Haryanvi’ ‘avatar’ makes it different.

 

Other cast includes Prashant Narayanan and Aditya Pancholi.  The film is directed by Sanamjit Singh Talwaar, the music is by Palash Muchhal. 

 

Produced by Shilpa Shetty and Sunil Lulla, the film is slated for release on 28 March. The trailer of this Eros International and ESM film has already created a stir on the social media.

 

Ayesha, stylist turned actress, was discovered by producer Shilpa Shetty Kundra and was initially very hesitant, but got a lot of encouragement from Harman. Ayesha said: "I would take a lot of advice from Harman. He was extremely sweet and patient with me and never once made me feel like I was a newcomer. It was great working with him and I did learn a lot from him and that shows on-screen". Harman revealed that he had never felt Ayesha was a newcomer.
