It feels like just yesterday when we cherished Salman Khan and Bhagyashree’s fresh and romantic pairing in Sooraj Barjatya’s Maine Pyaar Kiya. Would you believe if we tell you that soon we will see Bhagyashree’s son on screen?
Well yes, Bhagyashree’s son, Abhimanyu Dassani, is all set to make his Bollywood debut with a quirky action comedy- Mard Ko Dard Nahin Hota. He will be launched by Anurag Kashyap’s production company, Phantom and directed by Anurag’s assistant Vasan Bala, who has been working with him since Dev D.
Vasan wrote and directed the 2012 crime-thriller- Peddlers. The film was screened at Cannes 2012 in the International Critics’ Week.
And now coming to Abhimanyu’s leading lady, well, it’s not someone established from Bollywood but a known face from the Television world- Radhika Madan ( Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi fame), who has been cast opposite Abhimanyu. Reportedly, past one year both of them are undergoing extensive training as the film has some crazy hand combat action sequences. It also features Tamil star Vijay Sethupathi in a significant role.
While talking to a leading daily, Anurag Kashyap confirmed the news, “Vasan has written a superbly funny and kickass martial arts film, the likes of which I have neither read nor seen. It’s so local and so new that you can’t help but marvel at it. And I’m glad I get to produce it. We in Phantom hope that it becomes a never before seen franchise with these maddeningly crazy characters.”
As far as Abhimanyu’s mother Bhagyashree is concerned, she was last seen in the TV show, Laut Aao Trisha.
