On being casted by director Hansal Mehta in his upcoming movie ‘Chhalaang’, Sonu Ke Tittu Ki Sweety actress Nushrat Bharucha has been really surprised. On this Nushrat Bharucha has said “I never thought Hansal Mehta would cast me in his film because I kept thinking I couldn`t perform to his level and expectations. I was waiting for the moment when I will perform to the level that I will be able to work with him.”
Later on, she has added “When `Chhalaang` happened I was on cloud nine. I felt validated. It was a dream come true and I couldn`t have asked for a better team than this. `Chhalaang` has become extra special to me because my impossible dream came to live and I lived it with my whole heart.”
Through the movie Chhalaang, an inspirational story is going to be told. In the movie, Rajkummar Rao will be seen as the PT teacher Montu in a government funded school. Importance of sports education is going to be expressed through the movie. On the other hand, Nushrat Bharucha is playing the role of a computer teacher.
Talking about the movie earlier, Stree actress Rajkummar Rao has said earlier “I was into sports. I did my schooling in Haryana, so I could relate to it. The PT teacher`s accent… there is a lot of nostalgia and fun.”
Later on, Rajkummar Rao has also said “Audiences want to see real characters. That`s why new generation writers and filmmakers are making films about real people and cultures. You must have seen a guy like Montu (his character in the film) in real life. There is a demand for such stories.”
Omerta actor has also added “School has many opportunities. Education is important, but physical fitness is also important, especially in today`s time.”
On working with Hansal Mehta once again, Rajkummar has said “It is such a pleasure to work with Hansal sir. It is truly special. Our first meeting was in 2011 and there was an instant connection. Since then we have been working together. I adore him….Working with Hansal sir in this film was different. It is not one of the serious dramas. Hansal sir understands humour well.” Previously, both of them have collaborated on the movies like Shahid, Aligarh and City Lights.
Release of Chhalaang is scheduled on 13th November through Amazon Prime Video.
