Mumbai: Balaji Motion Pictures & Pritish Nandy Communications’ have pulled off a casting coup of sorts as the makers roped in Vidya Balan and Farhan Akhtar, two powerhouse performers who share screen-space for the very first time in Shaadi Ke Side Effects.
As the film is a couple of days away from its nationwide release , actress Vidya Balan who had the greatest time working with Farhan Akhtar is all praise for her co-star, “I’ve always liked the movies he’s directed, and ones he’s acted in. I have the greatest regard for him and his talents — writer, director, producer, actor and musician. When I learnt that he is part of SKSE, I was excited as the film required subtlety, and he’s great at that.”
Celebrating marriage as much as it celebrates its countless pitfalls, Farhan and Vidya reprise the iconic characters ,now as husband and wife as they take up the impossible task of coping with each other’s fantasies and realities.
Directed by Saket Chaudhary, Shaadi Ke Side Effects also starring Vir Das, Ram Kapoor, Purab Kohli , Ila Arun and several others is slated to release on February 28.
