National award-winning theatre, film, and television actor Surekha Sikri will be last seen on screen in this Zee5 original film Kya Meri Sonam Gupta Bewafa Hai. The film will be premiering on the OTT platform on September 10.

Surekha Sikri passed away on June 16, leaving a big void in Indian cinema, theatre, and television. But she lives on through the tall order of her oeuvre, be it for her performance in a negative role in the former-running soap opera Balika Vadhu, or her awe-inspiring act in Mammo, Badhaai Ho or Tamas, and the final movie in her career will bring to her fans and cinephiles what she does best, for one last time.

At the trailer launch event of the film Kya Meri Sonam Gupta Bewafa Hai, director Ssaurabh Tyagi disclosed some interesting facts about the late actress Surekha Sikri and how he had convinced her to do the film. He said that when he met her, she was not in the best of health and had her doubts if she’d be able to do the film. It took quite a bit of persuasion to get her onboard. He had told the Badhaai Ho actor that he badly wanted her in the film as the movie was written keeping her in mind. He signed off, saying that the best moment for him was when she said yes to the film and thereon went on to be a part of it.

The plot of the film is drawn from the real-life incident that had ‘Sonam Gupta Bewafa Hai’ written on a currency note. The image of the currency note had gone viral on social media and became the subject of several memes. A comedy of errors branches out from the eponymous one-liner ‘Kya Meri Sonam Gupta Bewafa Hai,’ that was trending on social media. The film takes off from that point to present a fictional story woven around it. 

Talking about the film to the media recently, the chief business officer of Zee5 India, Manish Kalra has said that the idea of the film was born from the sheer curiosity of people as to know why a single sentence on a currency note went viral and taking that as the germ of the plot, the makers have added their spin to it. Kalra further added that the movie is “funny, romantic, witty and has a message”, and he is excited about the premiere.

Kya Meri Sonam Gupta Bewafaa Hai unfolds in a small town in Uttar Pradesh, revolving around Sintoo, a young man who falls for the eponymous Sonam Gupta played by Surbhi Jyoti, the heartthrob of the town. 

Presented by Jayantilal Gada of Pen Studios and produced by Dhaval Gada and Aksshay Gada, the movie has an interesting cast like Surbhi Jyoti and Jassie Gill in the lead roles. Alongside them, Vijay Raaz, Atul Srivastava, Vibha Chhiber, and Bijendra Kala will also be seen in important parts. As per Tellychakkar, Paritosh Tripathi, Kaviraj Laique, and Sahiba have also been signed on for the film.
