Bigg Boss 14 winner Rubina Dilaik, who is known for her roles in popular TV shows like ‘Choti Bahu’ and ‘Shakti – Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki’ is all set to make her big-screen debut with Ardh. The actress while announcing this through an Instagram post captioned it, ‘New beginnings’.
Music Composer Palaash Muchhal, who turns writer-director with Ardh, commenced shooting the film in Mumbai today. ‘Ardh’ is about the struggle of an actor in a city like Mumbai. The film will showcase the experiences of my 15 years journey,” Muchhal said in a statement.
The film also starring Rajpal Yadav, Hiten Tejwani and Kulbhushan Kharbanda will have an OTT release in early 2022. As per reports, the film will see Rajpal Yadav play a transgender character who comes to Mumbai to become a hero. While Rubina’s character becomes his support in the new city, Hiten will play his best friend.
Veteran actor and ‘Mirzapur’ star Kharbanda revealed he is playing a small yet powerful role in ‘Ardh’. Hiten Tejwani, best known for soap operas “Kutumb” and “Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi”, said he is thrilled to be teaming up with Muchhal. “Palash is a young filmmaker and his energy is amazing. We as actors always want to play different characters and to work with young filmmakers like him is fun,” he said.
Interestingly, director Palaash has shelved Rubina in this role after auditioning over 50 girls and if the poster is to be decoded, Rubina is either playing the role of a transgender or a sex worker. Rajpal Yadav described “Ardh” as a concept-driven film. “I am very happy to be a part of this film and I am really proud of Palash. During the photoshoot, I was amazed to see his skills as a young filmmaker,” the “Hungama 2” actor added. Have a look at the poster..
