Adil Hussain, Tannishtha Chatterjee also a part of the production to be directed by Leena Yadav
Leena Yadav is back with another venture and this time it would be backed by Ajay Devgn. Leena’s last film Teen Patti, which introduced Shraddha Kapoor to the film industry, had a very unconventional star cast—Amitabh Bachchan, Ben Kingsley, etc. This time also she is all set to have another unusual cast for a movie that would be very hatke.
The film is tentatively called Parched and will be based on the story of three women from a modern village. The three women would be played by Tannishtha Chatterjee, Radikha Apte and Surveen Chawla. The film would also have Adil Hussain of Life of Pi and English Vinglish fame. Leena has once again found an international connect to the film by getting an LA-based production house to fund the project. The film would also be co-produced by the Singham star.
A little birdie informs us that the film would be shot by Oscar winner cinematographer Russell Carpenter (Titanic) and would have post production done by Oscar winner editor Hughes Winborne (Crash). The cast and crew are already in Jaisalmer where the first shooting schedule will begin soon.
We just hope that after having such well renowned artists and producers Leena comes up something better than Teen Patti. Hai na peeps?
