Actor Rajkummar Rao has been cast opposite Nargis Fakhri in Hollywood production titled 5 Weddings, to be directed by Namrata Singh Gujral.
“A production house from Los Angeles got in touch with me. I liked the script and the whole idea. Then I spoke to the director and I came on board. It’s a feature film and Nargis and I are together in the film,” Rajkummar said.
The actor is currently busy shooting for Bareily Ki Barfi and after he finishes shooting, he will begin work on 5 Weddings in Chandigarh. 5 Weddings will also be partly shot in Los Angeles.
“It will start shooting in November. We will be shooting in Chandigarh and LA. As far as Nargis is concerned, I feel she is a fantastic and lovely girl. I haven’t met her yet, but I have seen her work in Madras Cafe,” said Rajkummar.
“The role fits really well for her because she will be seen as an Indian girl raised in the US, so I feel it suits her. I am looking forward to work with her,” said the National Award-winning actor.
He is happy how content makers are considering Indian talent for their films and shows.
“I am lucky and I think it’s a fantastic time for all the actors. Look at Deepika Padukone, Irrfan Khan, Priyanka Chopra… they all are doing such a fabulous job. I am glad that the West is considering Indian talent,” he said. – CINEWS
