MUMBAI: Actor Radhika Apte has come on board to play a spy in her forthcoming film ‘Mrs Undercover’, the makers announced on Sunday. Abir Sengupta, who directed Kiara Advani-starrer ‘Indoo Ki Jawani’, has turned producer with the film. ‘Mrs Undercover’ marks the directorial debut of writer-director Anushree Mehta. The film also stars actor Sumeet Vyas.
The makers revealed the film’s teaser poster, which aims to indicate the “interesting dichotomous combination of an Indian housewife holding a gun”. Apte said when Mehta approached her with the film’s script, she was surprised with its ‘novelty’, which has now translated to the film’s poster. “When I saw this first look, it was that same excitement I felt and it was not only as someone who is a part of the film but also as a member of the audience.
“I think we all wanted to show the essence of the film through this first poster and I must say that we have captured it well. Now, I am waiting to see what the audience has to say about this special film of ours,” the 35-year-old actor said in a statement.
Mehta said it was ‘surreal’ to share the first look of the film with the audience. “The title, the poster, the imagery is a long-thought process to make people excited. I am so glad that I found an actor like Radhika Apte to play the titular character,” the debutante director said.
Presented by B4U Motion Pictures and Jaadugar Films & Knight Sky Movies, “Mrs Undercover” is produced by Ishan Saksena, Sengupta, Sunil Shah, and Varun Bajaj.
