Rani Mukerji to play Marathi ‘mulgi’, Jimmy Shergill is the Punjabi ‘munda’
Cineswami’s take on the new developments in Bollywood
Malayalam cinema heartthrob Prithviraj Sukumaran is all set to bow in the Hindi film industry, following in the footsteps of his illustrious predecessors Mammootty and Mohanlal. And no, the accent won’t be a problem, as he will play a Tamil painter in Sachin Kundalkar’s Bollywood debut. Aaiya will see Prithviraj romance Rani Mukerji who made a stirring comeback earlier this year with No One Killed Jessica. Mukerji will play a Marathi mulgi. Kundalkar is known for acclaimed Marathi films Gandh and Nirop. Anurag Kashyap will continue his dalliance with offbeat cinema by producing Aaiya. Prithviraj will dub the Hindi dialogue himself. The last time he spoke some Hindi on screen was in Dr Biju’s Veettilekkulla Vazhi (The Way Home). Let’s see if the Kerala hunk can do what no South Indian hero has done before – sustain a long career in Bollywood. Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan, Venkatesh and Nagarjuna all enjoyed some success before deciding to return to the south while the jury is still out on Rana Daggubati.
Another actor who had limited success is Bollywood has found his groove elsewhere. Jimmy Shergill is quite the star in Punjabi films and he’s added another feather to his turban by turning producer. Click here to read more
