After Sriram Raghavan’s 2015 revenge-drama Badlapur, Radhika Apte reunites with the filmmaker for his next. Titled Shoot “The Piano Player”, the thriller-musical features Ayushmann Khurrana and Tabu in the lead and went on the floors yesterday in Pune.
Furthermore, Vinay Pathak and Ashwini Kalsekar are also touted to be a part of the project.
“Radhika was signed recently but had been prepping for the part for a while. Ayushmann, who plays a musician in the film, started attending workshops two months ago, while Tabu kicked off prep last month. Radhika and Tabu will join Ayushmann in Pune for the first schedule this week,” a source told the daily.
“This is Sriram and Mohanan’s first feature film. This schedule is expected to go on for 16-18 days, after which the team will take a break and resume by July-end in Mumbai,” the source further reveals.
Ayushmann on Sunday took to Instagram to share a photograph of himself from the film’s shoot. In the image, the actor can be seen playing the piano and a clap board can be seen too.
“I missed the match. But started something really exciting. Great day at office on day 1 in Pune. Sriram Raghavan’s Shoot The Piano Player. #ShootBegins”, he captioned the image.
Other details related to the film, which is being co-produced by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures and Matchbox Pictures, is still under wraps.
