Mumbai: Actor Nushrratt Bharuccha Thursday started filming for her upcoming movie Selfiee, headlined by Akshay Kumar and Emraan Hashmi.
The actor is shooting for the Dharma Productions film in Bhopal. Selfiee reunites her with director Raj A Mehta, with whom she had worked on the Netflix anthology Ajeeb Daastaans.
Also starring Diana Penty, Selfiee marks the second collaboration between Bharuccha and Kumar after their upcoming feature Ram Setu.
“I am super excited to be a part of the Selfiee cast and looking forward to be working on one more film with Akshay sir…And that too right after Ram Setu, which makes it even more special.
“Of course my director Raj Mehta, who I have last done Ajeeb Datsaans with, is one crazy fun director! And him and Akshay sir on set, it will definitely be a laugh riot all day everyday! Selfiee is going to be one mad fun ride,” the 36-year-old actor said in a statement.
Bharuccha said she is also looking forward to working with Hashmi and Penty on the film, which is a remake of the 2019 Malayalam-language comedy-drama Driving Licence.
The original Malayalam movie was directed by Lal Jr from a script by Sachy. It revolved around a superstar (Prithviraj Sukumaran) famous for his driving skills who loses his licence.
The issue, however, spins out of control after he locks horns with a motor inspector (Suraj Venjaramoodu), who happens to be a fan of the actor.
Selfiee is produced by Dharma Productions and Kumar’s Cape of Good Films along with Sukumaran’s Prithviraj Productions and Magic Frames.
Bharuccha will also be seen in Janhit Mein Jaari, Chhorii 2 and Hurdang.
