Tusshar Kapoor has all the right reasons to rejoice. After working in a string of comedy films and social dramas, he is back to working in a core romantic film. The icing on the cake is the fact that he has been signed by none other than Barjatyas of Rajshri Productions. Also, this is a solo hero project, something which is a rarity in today's times when only a select few top actors are enjoying such privilege.
Confirms Tusshar who is visibly delighted with the latest progression in his professional career, "Yes, I have signed this film with Rajshris. It is a romantic outing and I am glad that it is also a solo hero project. It has been ages since I did one."
Tusshar is right when he says that. His last few films, most of them being successful, have all been multistarrers. Whether it was LIFE PARTNER, GOLMAAL RETURNS, ONE TWO THREE, C KKOMPANY, DHOL or SHOOTOUT AT LOKHANDWALA - each of them has featured two to three other lead actors.
The film won't be directed by Sooraj Barjatya though who is on a sabbatical of sorts. Instead, the man at the helm of affairs would be Manavsi who is making his directorial debut with this yet untitled film. Shooting for the film begins this July. Amrita Rao has been signed as the leading lady opposite Tusshar in the film. This would be her second outing with Barjatyas after VIVAAH where she had Shahid Kapoor for company.
