After entertaining the audiences in Dinesh Vijan's horror-comedy 'Stree' Rajkummar Rao gives a nod to Hansal Mehta's next titled 'Turram Khan'. This project reunites him with his 'Love Sex Aur Dhoka' co-star Nushrat Bharucha. This is a romantic comedy set in the backdrop of Uttar Pradesh. The film will be bankrolled by Ajay Devgn, Luv Ranjan and Ankur Garg. The film will go on floors in November this year.
Director Mehta said, ''I am delighted to be collaborating with Luv on this comedy. It is a new chapter in my filmography with Raj (Rajkummar), whose success I see as a vindication of my belief in him. It is also wonderful to be working with Nushrat, whose work I’ve followed and liked immensely in the past. This is my first out-and-out comedy and it is like making my debut all over again.''
Whereas Rao said, ''Turram Khan is a comedy that the audience will take back home. Hansal sir has played an instrumental role in my career. He has created some interesting and memorable characters for me, and I trust him blindly. Also, I have known Nushrat since our days of attending auditions and screen tests. So, I am sure that this is going to be a fun collaboration.''
While elated Nushrat on being the part of the film said, ''I love Hansal sir's cinema and I'm looking forward to playing this earthy character from UP. The audience will see me in a different light. Over the years, Raj's journey as an actor has been an inspiring one. He and Hansal sir share great camaraderie and I am excited to work with them.''
