Former fast pacer Brett Lee and Angry Indian Goddesses actor Tannishtha Chatterjee have come together for the romantic comedy UnIndian, which will be released India-wide on August 19.
The movie initially ran into a soup because of a long kissing and love-making scene between the lead actors but was approved later after the 1 minute and 8 seconds of passion were reduced to 26 seconds and other minor changes.
The Australian fast bowler had been shooting for the film, which got wrapped up in April 2015, since October 2014 . The film has already been screened at the 69th Cannes Film Festival.
The film is directed by Australia-based Anupam Sharma.
UnIndian defines the romantic relationship between Australian teacher Will (Lee) and Indian single mother Meera (Chatterjee) and the funny hassles they and their families have to come to terms with due to this unlikely union.
Watch the hilarious trailer here:
UnIndian is the first venture of the recently established Australia India Film Fund (AIFF), and Screen Australia."UnIndian is a romcom crossover film which will be loved by the Indian audience. The humour adds great value to the story and Brett is outstanding. It is different from the regular content on screen and is just the flavour we need. We are proud to be associated with this project," said Ranjit Thakur, on behalf of Krian Media, the main producer of the film.
The Indo- Australian flick also stars Gulshan Grover and Supriya Pathak in important supporting roles. The music is composed by the amazing duo Salim and Sulaiman. Brett Lee was very excited to be part of this film and has also enjoyed dancing to masala Bollywood tunes in the mix.
Now that the movie is set for release, promotions are on in full swing and Lee is leaving no stone unturned. He will soon be seen promoting the upcoming romantic comedy film on TV and the first platform happens to be the popular Indian comedy TV show, Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hain!
Saumya Tandon aka Anita, the other sexy Bhabhiji, said, "Lee is one of the most admired cricketers in the world. Glad to hear he is coming on the sets of our show. I have heard that he plays the guitar beautifully, so I am hoping to hear him strum for me."
According to IANS, the episode was shot yesterday and the cast and crew had a great time with the bowler.
He will next be seen on The Kapil Sharma Show and Kapil went gaga about it when he tweeted, "He is a singer, he is a guitarist, he is a cricketer, ok fine, in short today shooting with the great @BrettLee_58 #tkss," .
Yayy! So we are all looking forward to see him sing and shake a leg now aren’t we?
