The film is also featuring Radhika Madan and Rajat Barmecha
Ayush Mehra, who was last seen in the third season of the mini-series Please Find Attached on Amazon miniTV, is all set to make it big at the 47th Toronto Film Festival with his debut feature film titled Kacchey Limbu, alongside Radhika Madan. The film will be screened at the festival on September 11.
Expressing his excitement, Ayush told OTTplay, "For the longest time, all my fans have messaged me and asked when I was going to be appearing in a feature film and if I was interested in working on a Bollywood project. Well, this is the one for all my fans. My debut film, Kacchey Limbu, is coming, and it is all the more special for me because it will be screened at the Toronto Film Festival."
He went on, adding, "I am playing a pivotal part in the film with Radhika Madan, and it is a very interesting narrative. TIFF is a very prestigious festival for all of us, not only as actors but also as an audience. It is a festival that icons like Daniel Craig will be attending. I think we will have so many fan moments there. All of us, the members of the film, are feeling proud to represent India with our Kacchey Limbu."
Ayush is also known for his performance in the multi-starrer web series Call My Agent: Bollywood, released on Netflix last year.
The film is directed by debutant filmmaker Shubham Yogi and produced by Jyoti Deshpande and Neha Anand. The film also features Udaan-famed actor, Rajat Barmecha.
The story of Kacchey Limbu revolves around the journey of a young girl, played by Radhika, and her brother, played by Rajat Barmecha. Since childhood, she has been trying to impress her parents and follow them by learning Bharatnatyam and preparing for the medical entrance exam. She was uninterested in anything.
As a teenager, when she is asked the real question of what she wants to be and pursue as a career, she decides to opt out for cricket. However, when she gets discouraged by her family, she sets out on her journey to find a way to achieve her dream.
Asked about when the audience can expect to see the film, Ayush said, "The film will come to India post its festival screening, and though the release date hasn't been finalised yet, hopefully soon. We shot the film last year around the month of September, and now we are travelling with the film! What fun!!"
The TIFF will take place between September 8 and 18. Apart from the film 'Kachche Nimbu', Nandita Das' directorial debut, Zwigato, will be screened at the festival. Kapil Sharma stars as the protagonist.
National award-winning Assamese filmmaker Rima Das is also travelling to the festival with her latest film, titled Tora’s Husband.
