Rockstar's Nargis Fakhri is all set to make her comeback with Shiv Shastri Balboa, which also stars Anupam Kher, Neena Gupta and Sharib Hashmi. She was present along with the rest of the star cast of the film for the second poster release, which was done in the presence of the dabbawalas of Mumbai. She also served food to the dabbawalas.
Talking about her comeback to films, Nargis told the media, "I am a foodie and today's occasion is very special. I am super excited about it. I love food and cinema, and today we are celebrating both. I am happy to be back in Mumbai."
As the tagline of the film is 'spice of life', she was quizzed about which spice she adds to the narrative. While the actress laughed, Neena said, "She is an important spice." Anupam added,"I think she is the spice of the film."
The story of Shiv Shastri Balboa revolves around a retired man named Shiv Shastri, who lives in the USA and encounters an extraordinary situation. It is in that situation he realises that it is never too late to rediscover yourself. Anupam plays the title role and Neena is the female protagonist of the film.
It will be exciting to see how Nargis' character unfolds in the film. She was earlier seen in films Madras Cafe, Main Tera Hero, Azhar, Housefull 3 and Banjo, among others.
Shiv Shastri Balboa is directed by Ajayan Venugopalan and produced by Kishore Varieth. It also stars Jugal Hansraj, Anil Joseph and Alison Corriere, among others, and is releasing on February 10 in theatres.
