Arshad Warsi will team up with R Madhavan for the first time on the big screen
Actor Arshad Warsi is looking forward
to play a conman in Ken Ghosh's upcoming film alongside R
The actor would be teaming up with R Madhavan for the
first time on big screen for Ghosh's yet-to-be-titled film.
"The film with Ken Ghosh is about two conmen. It has R
Madhavan and me. The movie is based in Haryana. We will start
working on it this year after I complete 'Dedh Ishqiya',"
Arshad told PTI.
Reportedly, Aditi Rao Hydari will be playing the female
lead in this film.
Arshad will also be seen playing a dacoit in another film
titled Chambal Safari, a wacky satire, and unlike what the
film's title may suggest, it is not a violent or a dark film.
The movie is about a bunch of dacoits in Chambal who are
going through a lean phase as bandits and all this leads to
certain funny situations.
In Chambal Safari Arshad would be playing the role of a
dacoit but in misery.
"I play a dacoit... it is not a negative sort of
character. He is a dacoit in misery... who has a gun but can't
afford bullets. It's a beautiful film... a satire, a reality,"
"They (dacoits) are so poor in real life. It is the
realities that will make everyone laugh. The film is about the
dream of this dacoit to one day walk out and be welcomed by
the whole village, but nobody comes forward. He is bad and
sad," he said.
Aamir Khan was reportedly approached for this film
Arshad will begin shooting for the film from September
"The film needs a particular kind of weather. We will
shoot in September-October-November in Chambal, as that is the
best time for the shoot. It is very interesting. I liked the
script," he said.
Maqbool Khan, who made the critically acclaimed
Kabootar followed by Lanka, is directing Chambal Safari.
