Now he is going to produce an another film Tumhari Sulu, which stars Vidya Balan in the lead.
It's no secret that lensman has joined hands with Tanuj Garg (Former CEO of Balaji Motion Pictures) to form the film company Ellipsis, and on the first of May, their film Tumhari Sulu, starring Vidya Balan went on floors in Mumbai.
After Lage Raho Munabhai, Tumhari Sulu will see Vidya play a radio jockey once again on screen.
As the production of the film marches along, new additions to the cast keep making news. While actor Manav Kaul of Citylight's fame has been roped in to play Vidya's on-screen husband, Neha Dhupia will essay the role of Vidya's sassy boss at the radio station. Now we hear that RJ Mallishka is the new entrant in the team. In fact, very few people know that it was Mallishka who trained Vidya when she was prepping for her role in the Rajkumar Hirani film.
About Tumahri Sulu, Atul Kasbekar said, "We at Ellipsis actually follow what is our little method, that is, we greatly respect the written word.
We deeply respect the writers, the dialogue and screenplay writers and believe that there are amazing stories out there waiting to be told among us. Tumhari Sulu is directed by Suresh Triveni, it's also his debut film. He's got further writing assistance from actor/ director Vijay Maurya."
Kasbekar continued, "It's a Hrishikesh Mukherjee kind of space. If you ask people about their favourite Bollywood film, you will find that Hrishi Da's films will feature prominently on the list.
Last time, we made everyone cry, this time we'll send you with a smile. It's a happy film, no car chases, no guns, no profanities, no fighting. It's a slice-of-life comedy, written with Vidya in mind."
