Mumbai: Taking the incident where ‘Sonam Gupta Bewafa Hai’ written on a currency note went viral across the country to the next level, ZEE5 has announced its next original film "Kya Meri Sonam Gupta Bewafa Hai", which will premiere on the platform very soon. The film is presented by Dr Jayantilal Gada of Pen Studios.

Produced by Dhaval and Aksshay Gada and directed by Ssaurabh Tyagi, the film marks the Bollywood debut of TV actor Surbhi Jyoti opposite Jassie Gill. It also stars Vijay Raaz, Bijendra Kala, Atul Shrivastava, and the National Award-winning late actress Surekha Sikri in pivotal roles. The film has a couple of soundtracks which will be available on ‘Saregama’.

Set in a small town in Uttar Pradesh, the romantic comedy follows a young man named Sintoo who falls in love with Sonam Gupta, the town’s heartbeat and a girl way out of his league. The story unfolds when Sonam reciprocates his feelings, leaving Sintoo all the more confused. What happens after is a series of comedy of errors where a line written on a note goes viral and starts a chain of events, the platform shared in a statement.

ZEE5 India, chief business officer, Manish Kalra said, "There is a story waiting to be told in every nook and corner and we are glad to be picking on these stories and presenting it to a larger audience. ‘Kya Meri Sonam Gupta Bewafa Hai’ is based on a true incident but it picks up from there and completes the narrative. We are sure that people are curious to know why something written on a currency note was trending and we thought it would be interesting to tell a fictionalised story based on this viral incident. This movie is romantic, funny, and witty, and it has a message. It is a complete package, and we are excited for the premiere."

Pen Studios, chairman and MD, Dr Jayantilal Gada added, “The film’s script is very inspiring and interesting. Taking a viral incident that caught the nation’s attention and making a content-driven contemporary story out of it was something that caught our attention in turn. We at Pen Studios focus on strong content and this film has it.”
