Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s niece Sharmin Segal and Jaaved Jaaferi’s son Mizaan will be debuting together in a romantic film directed by Marathi filmmaker Mangesh Hadwale.
Mangesh Hadawale, whose previous film Dekh Indian Circus starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui was widely acclaimed, will helm the project under Bhansali’s banner once the shooting of Bhansali’s own directorial Padmavati wraps up.
Although the film will be a love story, it will not be set in a fantasy world as was reported earlier.
“It won’t be a fantasy-romance, but a very real story with the kind of social relevance that made Nagraj Manjule’s Sairat so special,” a source told DNA.
While Sharmin has attended acting school in New York, Mizaan has also committed himself to a serious training regime to prepare for the part, added the DNA report.
