    In filmmaking, casting is half the battle won. Of his lead pair, Ghanchakkar director Raj Kumar Gupta says, “Getting Vidya Balan and Emraan Hashmi together is a cracker of a casting. Both actors work wonderfully for my film. Emraan plays an ex-con, who has a yen for the finer things in life. Vidya plays his wife. It is an out-of-the-box script and the film is completely character driven.”

    Emraan believes that if a story is simply told and still grabs you in one sentence, it is definitely worth it. He says, “I have a selfish need to do a great role and after The Dirty Picture, I’m dying to do another film with Vidya.” Vidya reciprocates Emraan’s sentiment. She says, “Teaming up with Emraan again is exciting. It took me nearly eight months to say yes to this movie because I was tied up with The Dirty Picture and Kahaani.” Ask her if she green-lit this project only because beau UTV Motion Pictures CEO Siddharth Roy Kapur is one of the producers and she retorts, “I’ve been wanting to try a comedy. Even in Heyy Babyy and Lage Raho Munnabhai, my character didn’t have any comic scenes. This time, I am really looking forward to this experience. Also, when I choose a film, the role and the script takes precedence. And when you have both, you want a good producer. I am very happy to be working with UTV; but no, it has nothing to do with what you want to hear.”

    Producer Kapur says, “Rajkumar Gupta is one of the most talented writer-directors today. This quirky comic-thriller will surprise you with its twists and turns.”

    Ghanchakkar goes on floors in August 2012.
