A quick look at everything making news in the world of cinema today!
Director Tigmanshu Dhulia on Monday began the shoot of his next film Milan Talkies with its lead cast Ali Fazal, Shraddha Srinath, Reecha Sinha and Deep Raj Rana. Producer P.S. Chhatwal of Filmy Keeda Productions was also present on the set, where the mahurat shot was canned.
“It is a big step for me in my career that I am working with Tigmanshu Sir and the entire team. I am very excited as a lot of new things will be happening for the first time for all of us. I am working with Shraddha in her first Bollywood film. It feels very weird to be shooting in Lucknow. I’ve lived here, known these gulies, mohallas all my life, and never thought I will be shooting here. So, it feels good,” said Ali Fazal in a statement to the press.
Milan Talkies also features Ashutosh Rana, Sanjay Mishra, Yashpal Sharma and Sikander Kher.
