Raveena, who was last seen in a guest appearance in Bombay Velvet, will be seen in a pivotal role in Shab.
When Onir was asked whether Shab will be Raveena's comeback film, he told PTI: "Yes it will be, because she had a small role in Bombay Velvet. I genuinely feel that she is an incredible actress and I wanted to work with her on this film since a long time. She will surprise everyone with her performance in the film."
Set in Delhi, Shab depicts a love triangle and also stars actor Prosenjit Chatterjee's wife Arpita and Ashish Bisht, both in their Bollywood debut role. (Also Read: Shab Will Show You a Different Side of Delhi: Onir)
Onir's frequent collaborator, actor Sanjay Suri will also be seen in the movie and he is happy that his dream of making the film has come true.
"Shab is the first script that I had ever written, almost 13-14 years ago. Interestingly, it was originally written for Raveena and Sanjay, when I had worked with them during the film Daman. The script has been with me since then and I am so happy the film is finally happening. It is a dream come true," added Onir.
Onir's next film, Chauranga, is scheduled to release on January 8.
