The news comes as Vishal’s son Aasmaan Bardwaj announced his directorial debut titled Kuttey
While there is a lot of buzz about Kuttey, which will be produced by Vishal Bhardwaj, the latest news is that the National Award winning filmmaker has cast Ali Fazal in his latest directorial.
It’s being reported that Fazal will be the leading man in Vishal’s next directorial. Pinkvilla has learned from a source close to the development, “Vishal will be directing an action-drama next, and has signed Ali Fazal for the same. This is the first time that Vishal and Ali will be working together, and they are really looking forward to it.”
Vishal is eager to get back to directing and is looking to kickstart the project by the end of the year, according to the source.
Meanwhile, Vishal’s son Aasmaan Bhardwaj will be making his directorial debut with the movie title Kuttey, which was announced on Monday. Produced by Vishal, the film stars Tabu, Naseeruddin Shah, Konkona Sen Sharma, Arjun Kapoor, Kumud Mishra, Radhika Madan and Shardul Bhardwaj.
Vishal’s last outing as a director was with Pataakha in 2018 starring Radhika Madan, Sanya Malhotra and Sunil Grover. Fazal, who made his acting debut with a small role in a Hollywood production titled The Other End of the Line, made his Bollywood debut with a cameo in Rajkumar Hirani’s 3 Idiots. An actor who was then seen in many supporting roles, Fazal also featured in Furious 7, the seventh instalment of the Fast and the Furious franchise.
While there has been no official confirmation about the new Vishal project, his return is one that the fans are eagerly waiting for.
