Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan who is riding high on success post the super success of his latest release 'Paan Singh Tomar' is all set to romance Aditi Rao Hydari in a new romantic comedy directed by Shivam Nair who has directed 'Ahista Ahista' in past.
The film, produced by Anjum Rizvi, is set in the rustic backdrop of Uttar Pradesh. It will have an earthy rustic language with the flavour of the city in it.
The film is said to be a rural love story where Irrfan plays the local band member who plays instruments in local weddings. Aditi will play his romantic interest as a village girl with the cute looks and cut throat appeal. The film has been in the minds of the makers for quite some time now and Irrfan was finalized way before he started shooting for 'Paan Singh Tomar'. However, the team was waiting for the right female lead which they luckily found in Aditi.
Shivam Nair agrees that the pairing is unusual, but will be the highlight of the film.
"We were looking for a young girl to play a street smart girl. Aditi suits the character perfectly. The pair would be one of the highlights of the film. People will Irrfan Khan in a light role after a long gap. I always had Irrfan in mind even while writing the script," he added." he said in a statement.
The film is yet to get a title and will go on the floors soon. Aditi was last seen in Anu Menon's London Paris New York with Pakistani-actor singer Ali Zafar.
