Nausikhiye, the second film from Lionsgate India Studios, delves into humour shortly after the initial announcement of its feature film, Letters to Mr. Khanna, starring Neetu Kapoor, Sunny Kaushal, and Shraddha Srinath. The comedy by Santosh Singh features three well-known young new-age performers: Abhimanyu Dassani, Amol Parashar, and Shreya Dhanwanthary. Lionsgate India Studios is more committed than ever to giving its large audience in India a wide range of content by building on its unique programming slate.

Ellipsis Entertainment, known for its critically acclaimed high-impact films like Neerja, Tumhari Sulu, Looop Lapeta, and others, will produce the movie, which was written by Chirag Garg and Avinash Dwivedi. Two people who crash a wedding and take the bride by accident start a fun cat-and-mouse game across the countryside.


In a statement, Rohit Jain, MD of Lionsgate's Emerging Markets Asia division, said that Lionsgate India Studios is always putting money into content for India's diverse audience. In keeping with this, they are returning with a hilarious, relevant, and urban comedy feature film that they think is exactly what the post-pandemic world needs. They want to look into new and interesting genres to add variety to their content and give their audience a well-rounded entertainment experience. Jain is sure that this movie, which is being directed by Santosh Singh and has a great cast, will be a hit and be one of the many great things that Lionsgate India Studios has made.

Tanuj Garg and Atul Kasbekar, who are managing partners at Ellipsis Entertainment, said that the first collaboration between Ellipsis and Lionsgate India Studio is a popcorn film made by a young team. This is their first straight-up comedy, and they want it to be funny for people of all ages and from all over the world. They are excited to entertain the audience with a lighthearted comedy that will be a blast to film!

Abhimanyu Dassani, who plays the lead in the film, is looking forward to the blast he's going to have shooting this insane, mad adventure. Nausikhiye has the charm and oddness of a small town, and its great music, crazy situations, and strange people add to that. The actor is excited to start his inning with Lionsgate and Ellipsis.

While Amol Parashar stated that when the script was described to him, he nearly immediately said yes. This one will make people laugh out loud. The actor's favourite genre to watch and act in has always been comedy. He's excited to start preparation and shooting, as this is also his first movie with Lionsgate and Ellipsis, both of whom he has been eager to work with.

According to Shreya Dhanwanthary, this movie is like coming home; it's her third with Ellipsis. The actor is ecstatic to take part in this wacky comedy, which had her in stitches right away. Universal entertainers are a sure thing, especially in these times, and unlike some of the parts she has played recently, her audience will get to view her in a different way.
