Helen to return to screen after a decade in director Abhinay Deo’s Brown

Yesteryear actress-dancer Helen will reportedly be seen next in director Abhinay Deo’s upcoming project Brown, led by Karisma Kapoor.

According to ETimes, this project, which goes on floors this month, will mark Helen’s return to a set after a decade-long hiatus. The report adds that she plays a key role in the project which went on floors recently. Helen was last seen in Heroine which stars Kareena Kapoor Khan.

Brown, produced by Zee Studios, is based on Abheek Barua's novel City of Death. The creators have yet to reveal whether the

project will be a feature film or a web series.

So far, it’s known that Brown is a neo-noir crime drama set in Kolkata.

ETimes adds that Brown was supposed to begin production last year but the spread of COVID-19 interrupted the process. The shooting was once again put on hold after director Abhinay’s father Ramesh Deo passed away.

Karisma had also announced Brown with a picture of a clapboard from the set as well as the title poster of the project. She captioned the photos: “To fresh beginnings #brown.”

Sister Kareena showed her some love after the project announcement, writing, "You are the best."

Here is Karishma’s post:

In a statement shared by news agency PTI, Karisma said that her character, a detective, is a “fiercely strong character in an intriguing story.” Joining her in the cast is Surya Sharma.

Karisma was most recently seen in the web series Mentalhood, in which she co-starred with Sanjay Suri, Dino Morea, Tillotama Shome, Shruti Seth, and Shilpa Shukla.

Meanwhile, Helen is known for appearing in memorable supporting roles and for her memorable dance performances to songs like ‘Mera Naam Chin Chin Chu’, ‘O Haseena Zulfon Wali’, and ‘Mehbooba Mehbooba.’
