YouTube sensation Prajakta Koli, who goes by the moniker Mostly Sane, makes her acting debut in Khayali Pulav, co-starring Yashpal Sharma.
The short film, written and directed by Tarun Dudeja, is set in a Haryana village.
Koli plays a handball enthusiast, who is determined to break gender-oriented prejudice. "The film is a reminder of how precious the freedom to live your life the way you want to is and how even the seemingly simple act of being able to wear shorts becomes a complicated mission for a girl," says Koli. Known for her funny antics, the film, which drops on her channel today, will portray her in a new light.
Mukesh Tiwari and Punjabi actor Sidhika Sharma have begun shooting in Chandigarh for the comic caper, Velapanti.
Rajat Bakshi, who produced the Pulkit Samrat and Kriti Kharbanda-starrer Veerey Ki Wedding (2018), is helming the project. The film, also starring Pankaj Tripathi and Rahul Dev, marks Sharma's Bollywood debut.
