About the upcoming film ‘Woh ladki hai Kahaan?’
Woh Ladki Hai Kahaan? is an investigative comedy film in which Taapsee Pannu will play the role of a feisty cop. On the other hand, Pratik Gandhi will be seen as a chauvinistic brat whose paths cross with Taapsee. The film’s description reads, “Pratik finds himself compelled to take a riotous, madcap ride with Taapsee’s character, whose attitude to life is the diametrical opposite of his. When the two leads are forced to make this unlikely journey together, their divergent personalities hilariously clash, leading to volatile and unpredictable interactions that promise a battle of wits and an entertaining viewing experience.”
Siddharth Roy Kapur said in a statement, “When Arshad narrated his charming and delightful screenplay to us, we instantly knew we just had to produce the film. We are especially excited to be working with Taapsee, who brings so much energy and exuberance to the screen, and Pratik, who blew us all away with his incredible performance in Scam! We are also very happy that Arshad, who is already known as a superb writer, will make his directorial debut with this film.”
Taapsee Pannu loves the script of her next film
Taapsee Pannu stated, “I loved the strong and thoroughly unique and entertaining character that Arshad had written for me it is very exciting to partner with a producer as prolific as Sid, as well as Pratik, whose performance in Scam left a lasting impression on me!”
Pratik Gandhi is also excited about Woh Ladki Hai Kahaan? He said, “I feel truly privileged to be a part of this project and to be working with the stellar team of Taapsee, Arshad and Sid! I was looking to dive into something totally different after Scam and this role ticked all the boxes. I am sure it will be a fun ride ahead and I can’t wait to start!”
Woh Ladki Hai Kahaan? Will go on floors by the end of the year. The makers of the film are currently in the process of finalising the rest of the cast & crew.
