Director Kunal Deshmukh whose last film was Emraan Hashmi’s Raja Natwarlal, is all set to bring a love story to the big screen. Actors Sunny Kaushal, Radhika Madan, Mohit Raina and Diana Penty have bagged the lead roles in the movie titled "Shiddat- Journey Beyond Love".
While Radhika is paired opposite Sunny, Mohit will be seen with Diana. Showing two parallel plot tracks. The film is produced by Dinesh Vijan, who has delivered three hits "Hindi Medium", "Stree" and "Luka Chuppi".
Directed by Kunal Deshmukh, the film will go on floors in September and will be shot across Punjab, Paris and London.
The story has been written by Sridhar Raghavan and Dheeraj Rattan, with Dheeraj working for the film’s dialogues as well.
When asked why Dinesh Vijan chose a love story he jokingly said: "I got married recently, so I'm feeling it, but on a serious note in our day and age where love is taken so lightly, it's difficult to imagine the lengths people would go to for it. 'Shiddat' is a not only a story about love but the distance one travels for it. The passion that overcomes... Maybe all senses or logic to do things that you wouldn't usually imagine, the belief in something with all your heart and the drive to achieve it- that's 'Shiddat'."
On the professional front, Sunny Kaushal is filming for Bhangara Paa Le and will also be seen in Ranveer Singh’s ‘83’. While Diana Penty was launched by Dinesh Vijan himself in Cocktail and was seen last in Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi.
Mohit was seen debuting in Vicky Kaushal’s ‘Uri: the surgical strike’ and Radhika Madan is currently shooting for Angrezi Medium a Dinesh Vijan production.
Let’s see how these pairings come out together in this promising love story which is touted to tell the tale of true love.
