The makers of Taapsee Pannu-starrer Rashmi Rocket announced the male lead of the film. Bhavesh Joshi fame Priyanshu Painyuli has been roped in opposite Taapsee, in the project directed by Akarsh Khurana.
It might be the start of a golden phase for Priyanshu, who will soon be seen in Chris Hemsworth starrer Extraction which drops online in April.
Priyanshu says, “This looks like a great year already and hopefully the start of a great decade too. In Rashmi Rocket, I will be playing the role of an army officer. It’s a matter of great pride for me. Since I come from the defense background, playing a man in uniform is both an honour and responsibility. It’s extremely exciting especially after my last film Upstarts, whose universe is so far removed from the world.”
He further informs that the film will kickstart next month and they will shoot across Delhi, Kutch, Dehradun, and Mussoorie. “It’s a fictional film but inspired by real events,” he adds.
