Vicky and Manushi's next with YRF gets a tentative title
Vicky Kaushal and Manushi Chhillar's movie with Yash Raj Films has got a tentative title. Reports suggest that their movie will now be called The Great Indian Family or TGIF. The film is touted to be from the comedy genre and the shoot is almost completed. Directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, the film's release date is not clear. Here's more.
'TGIF' to be a family comedy
Even though several details have been kept under the wraps, it is being touted as Kaushal's first comedy movie. "The movie revolves around a dysfunctional family and hence the title. It's also called the same because TGIF is also a very millennial term. But it's a tentative title. Aditya Chopra could also ask for a change on the same," sources told Bollywood Hungama.
The movie will not release this year
Though the movie's shooting has been completed, the renowned production house is not eyeing a 2021 release for TGIF. "Prithviraj releases on Diwali this year and the makers are clear that this has to be Manushi's debut project because it's a grand period drama that will position her really well. TGIF will release only around early 2022," insiders told the portal.
Kaushal is a busy man with many projects lined up
Kaushal is quite a busy man as he has several projects with him. Apart from the aforementioned movie, he also has Shashank Khaitan's Mr. Lele and Aditya Dhar's The Immortal Ashwatthama in his kitty. The latter will mark the second collaboration between Dhar and Kaushal. They earlier came together for Uri: The Surgical Strike in 2019, which made the actor a household name.
Chhillar to make her debut with YRF's 'Prithviraj'
Former Miss World Chhillar will make her debut with another YRF grand epic titled Prithviraj opposite Akshay Kumar. The film will release this Diwali on November 5. It has been directed by Chandraprakash Dwivedi. It will clash with Shahid Kapoor's Jersey, which is opening in theaters on the same day. Prithviraj also stars Sanjay Dutt and Sonu Sood in pivotal roles.
