Pulkit Samrat-Richa Chadda in Farhan Akhtar’s next

The newbies will be seen together in director Mrigdeep Singh Lamba’s Fukrey being produced by Excel Entertainment

Pulkit Samrat’s debut film Bittoo Boss tanked at the BO and we had begun to think that it would take a very gutsy producer to stake money on him. Who knew that the lucky lad would land a role in Farhan Akhtar’s next home production! Pulkit has been cast in director Mrigdeep Singh Lamba’s Fukrey. This time around he will be seen romancing Richa Chadda, who was last seen in Gangs Of Wasseypur. News is that Fukrey is going to be a high-octane youth-oriented film about a bunch of youngsters in college.

This one will have a typically North-Indian flavour and wethinks the makers have made a wise casting decision. Both Pulkit and Richa have the Delhi connect and will not have to stress too much to get into their characters. We heard that there will be many more fresh faces cast in this college caper. And to those who are still wondering what ‘fukrey’ means…it’s Delhi slang describing someone who’s good for nothing, or has nothing to do.
