Ardh is one of the most anticipated films of ZEE5. Written and directed by Palash Muchhal, the film is about a man from the lower strata of society, who is dreaming of becoming an actor, played by Rajpal Yadav. The film also features Rubina Dilaik. The popular TV actress will be making her Bollywood debut with the slice-of-life film. 

The makers had earlier released the trailer of the film and it has been creating quite a buzz on social media. The trailer shares a glimpse into the film, where Rajpal is seen playing the role of Shiva, who is making ends meet by acting as a transgender and seeking money at traffic signals. Rubina plays his wife in the drama. 

Recently, the actor opened up about the role and challenges he faced while portraying Shiva. He said, "Theatre professionals always do their research and also observe things around. The script was very challenging and it gave me immense joy to perform those challenging scenes or portrayal of that character. Everything was done keeping in mind the nuances of each character, be it playing a transgender or a theatre actor." He added that he really enjoyed the process.

The actor had earlier also said that there are millions of Shiva and Parvati, like the couple portrayed in the film, in our country who are trying to survive. He said the story is dedicated to people like them and he feels privileged to have been able to tell such a story. 

Written and directed by Palash Muchhal, the film is produced by Pal Music and Films. The movie will release on Zee5 on June 10, this year.
