Mumbai: Popular actor Vinay Pathak who is known for his comic and dramatic roles in films such as Khosla Ka Ghosla, Johnny Gaddar, Bheja Fry, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, etc will be soon seen tickling our funny bone once again, this time in Harsh Chhaya’s directorial debut Khajoor Pe Atke.
In the film, which boasts of an ensemble cast comprising Manoj Pahwa, Seema Pahwa, Dolly Ahluwalia, Sanah Kapoor, Suneeta Sengupta and others, will have Pathak essaying the role of Ravindar, the youngest sibling of the family, who is a laidback and self-centered guy. When he learns about the imminent death of a family member, Ravindar ends up being caught between his own interests and that of the rest of the family, which leads to funny situations.
Vinay, who has been part of many small films, also spoke about the problems a small film faces as far as its release and collection is concerned. “Khajoor pe Atke is a small film and nowadays it’s very difficult to make a film and release it. People don’t go in cinema halls to watch small films. If we go through last 10 years record we can see how many films are made and how many small films turn hits. It’s very sad on part of small films as these films are not watched in the theatre,” said Pathak
Presented by S.O.I.E films, produced by Welcome Films Productions and directed by Harsh Chhaya the film is set to release on May 18, 2018.
