Casting Riteish Deshmukh and newbie Pulkit Samrat as terrorists, Farhan Akhtar‘s Bangistan has roped in acclaimed Polish stars Cezary Pazura and Tomasz Karolak for pivotal roles.
Producer Farhan’s recent podcast with BBC Asian Network’s Haroon Rashid revealed that his upcoming mainstream comedy production with Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. is India’s reply to Chris Morris’ dark comedy Four Lions. The actor-producer said that the film is about “young people being brainwashed in to believing certain ideology.”
Both Cezary and Tomasz hold sound expertise in their individual humor genres, having given super performances in flicks such as Psy, Kiler, and Boys Don’t Cry and The Perfect Guy for My Girlfriend and Letters to Santa.
Meanwhile, it is to be informed that director Karan Anshuman will be debuting in this film.
Conversing with Mirror, Karan said, “Our first schedule begins on July 25 in Krakow and both Cezary and Tomasz will be joining us there. The reason they’ve been cast is because the story demands characters from that country. Their lines will be mostly in English and their accent will only add to the authenticity. Tomasz is known as the Jim Carrey of Poland. He has a fabulous comic timing.”
More to know, Sri Lankan starlet Jacqueline Fernandez will be appearing in a cameo role.
