Neha Dhupia joins Kajol for Pradeep Sarkar’s next film

Mumbai: After garnering critical acclaim for her work in “Tumhari Sulu”, actor Neha Dhupia is all set to begin her next film, featuring Kajol.

Directed by Pradeep Sarkar, the film, tentatively titled “Eela”, is an adaptation of Anand Gandhi’s Gujarati play, “Beta Kaagdo”.

Kajol plays a single parent in the film, which revolves around the relationship shared by a mother and son.

“Life has come a full circle with this film. Pradeep Sarkar is going to direct it and he’s an amazing person to work with. He had directed my first ever music video, many many years ago, when I was a model,” Neha told PTI.

“I’m looking forward to working with Kajol too, who plays the protagonist in the film. She’s an effortless actor. She plays Eela, which is also the tentative title of the film,” she added.

“Eela” is produced by Ajay Devgn who, Neha said, had produced her first film too, “so it was very nostalgic to sign it.”

In the film, Neha plays a drama instructor called Padma. While the shoot of the movie has already begun, the 37-year-old actor will be joining the team later this month.
