After Fawad Khan, Shahroz Sabzwari Too Joins Bollywood!
After the big news that Mahira Khan will be seen playing the role of Shah Rukh Kahn‘s wife in Raees, it’s now heard that Shahroz Sabzwari is the latest Pakistani actor to join Bollywood. Shahroz Sabzwari has been roped in to play the lead in the film, which also stars a handful of actors from Bengal. The film will be directed by Riingo, who’ll debut in B-Town with this film.
The cast of the film includes Riya Sen, Zarina Wahab, Aryann, Bidita Bag, Locket Chatterjee and Mukesh Tiwari, among others.
The story of the film revolves around three guys who are best friends — Luv, Madan Chetri aka MC and Kushali. The film is about these three best friends who grow up in an orphanage in Kalimpong. Luv (Shahroz) is low on IQ, while MC (Aryann) is a smart guy who knows money can get him recognition and doesn’t mind taking the wrong path. Kushali (Bidita), on the other hand, has complete control over both Luv and MC. The latter has a soft corner for Kushali but is well-aware of her feelings for Luv. Kushali uses MC’s emotions to get Luv a job. Meanwhile, Zarina’s character adopts Luv after her son’s death. Riya plays a wannabe Kareena Kapoor living in the hills. After a murder takes place, Luv becomes the prime suspect and the film takes a turn thereafter.
About Shahroz, the director said:
“He is a huge craze in Pakistan, but came on board after auditions.”
Shahroz Sabzwari’s first Pakistani film was Khulay Aasman Ke Neechay, which was directed by his uncle Javed Sheikh which did quite well in Pakistan. After that Shehroz appeared in many dramas and commercials.
“I grew up on Hindi cinema, especially Amitji’s (Amitabh Bachchan) films. It was always my dream to join Bollywood and I hope India welcomes me with open arms. I had been to Mumbai twice before and this is going to be my third visit. It took me a second to give my nod after hearing the script. There are many shades to Luv’s character. I was really nervous about sending my audition tape to the director. I also told him how I love Satyajit Ray’s films,” said Shahroz.
The shooting of Shehroz’s first Bollywood film will begin on January 28 in north Bengal.
