Richa Chadha’s British film titled Bombairiya
Bombairiya is the name of British film starring Richa Chadha and Akshay Oberoi. As the title suggests, the film is an ode to Mumbai and will be shot in the financial capital itself.
The movie is being directed by debutante director Pia Sukanya.
So what's the British connection?
The film, slated to go on floors in December, is being produced by India-born British producer Michael Ward.
‘It's true that the development financing of the film is British, but Richa and Akshay are both on the rise in commercial Hindi cinema and that is why we cast them. We also have other supremely talented actors in leading roles in 'Bombairiya' and we shall reveal who they are shortly,’ Ward said in a statement.
‘Both Pia and I are essentially Indian at heart and Mumbai is an integral part of our being. Pia's story is inspired by a real life incident that took place in Mumbai and this gave her the opportunity to weave in various other facets of this remarkable city,’ he added.
