Fardeen Khan was last seen in the 2010 rom-com Dulha Mil Gaya
Actor Fardeen Khan turned heads a few months ago, after being spotted following considerable weight loss. Latest reports suggest that the actor is gearing up for his Bollywood comeback through a movie titled Visfot.
Visfot, which is backed by Sanjay Gupta, will start shooting in Mumbai and will also feature Riteish Deshmukh. The film will look to play on the contrast between the chawls of Dongri and the high-rises in the city. Fardeen was last seen on the big screen in Dulha Mil Gaya, the romantic-comedy directed by Mudassar Aziz.
Visfot, will be a drama that will pit the two actors against each other, and will be the official remake of the 2012 Venezuelan drama, Rock, Paper, Scissors that was directed by Hernán Jabes. The movie was the Venezuelan entry in the 85th Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film category, but did not make it to the final shortlist.
Sanjay Gupta confirmed the reports and was quoted in a report by the Times of India, “Yes, Fardeen is making his Bollywood comeback with this film.” The producer said that if everything falls in place, the shoot will commence by the end of this month.
The two actors were previously seen sharing screen space in the 2007 comedy Heyy Babyy, directed by Sajid Khan. The movie also featured Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan and Boman Irani. Riteish Deshmukh last appeared in the action thriller Baaghi 3, starring Tiger Shroff.
