Selfiee movie cast: Nushrratt Bharuccha, Diana Penty join Akshay Kumar and Emraan Hashmi
Actors Nushrratt Bharuccha and Diana Penty have joined superstar Akshay Kumar in the upcoming comedy-drama “Selfiee”, the makers announced on Monday. Directed by Raj Mehta of “Good Newwz” fame, the film is a remake of the 2019 Malayalam-language comedy-drama “Driving Permis.” “Selfiee,” backed by filmmaker Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, also stars Emraan Hashmi . Johar took to Twitter and shared an announcement video, featuring Bharuccha and Penty.
“Welcome two gorgeous and lovely ladies @Nushrratt & @DianaPenty to the #Selfiee family! Sit tight cause it’s gonna be one hell of a ride,” the tweet read.
Bharuccha, who previously worked with Johar in his “Ajeeb Daastaans” production, said she was delighted to join the cast. “Everyone always smiles when surrounded by the best energy! Super excited to join the #Selfiee team,” the 36-year-old actor wrote.
Penty, who currently stars in Dulquer Salmaan’s “Salute,” said she was “super excited to get on this crazy ride.”
The film is the Hindi remake of the 2019 Malayalam film “Driving License”, directed by Lal Jr, which starred Prithviraj Sukumaran and Suraj Venjaramoodu.
The original Malayalam film was directed by Lal Jr from a script by Sachy. It revolved around a superstar (Prithviraj Sukumaran) famous for his racing skills who loses his license. The problem, however, spirals out of control after he locks the horns with an engine inspector (Suraj Venjaramoodu), who happens to be a fan of the actor.
“Selfiee” is produced by Dharma Productions and Kumar’s Cape of Good Films along with Prithviraj Productions and Sukumaran’s Magic Frames.
