Randeep Hooda-Ileana D’Cruz will romance each other for the very first time, of course on the silver screen, in a quirky comedy film titled: ‘Unfair and Lovely’.
Interpreting the title, one thing is clear that the film takes on the critical subject of Indian obsession with ‘fairness’. In the movie, Ileana will play the role of a Haryanvi girl, who battles with the prejudices of society regarding fair skin. Her name in the film will be Lovely as suggested in the title.
Giving an insight into the film, Ileana told Mumbai Mirror,
“This role is different from all my earlier work and a challenging one. The character requires a lot of sensitivity and I’m waiting to see how it unfolds. I can assure you that the film will leave you with a smile.”
Whilst Randeep revealed,
“I do have a lighter side to me and when I heard this story, I was instantly hooked.”
Unfair and Lovely is being helmed by debutant Balwinder Singh Janjua, who also penned the screenplay for Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar starrer Saand Ki Aankh in past. On the other hand, this upcoming film is written by the Duo: Anil Rodhan and Kunal Mandekar.
Ileana, who made her last box office appearance with Anees Bazmee’s Pagalpanti, which was a big box office disappointment despite being a multistarrer and having starred with proven talent. She also has The Big Bull in her bucket, in which she shares the screen space with Abhishek Bachchan. The film is being helmed by Kookie Gulati and is set to release on October 23, 2020.
