Earlier, it was Taran only, who broke the news to his followers that Diljit will be sharing the screen space with Manoj.
Director, Abhishek Sharma told a leading news agency, “With awesome actors like Diljit,Manoj, Fatima, and a fantastic ensemble cast, I am sure we will be able to create an entertaining narrative for our family audience.”
He added, “It’s a start-to-finish schedule; we start shooting on January 6 till mid-March and release it before year-end.”
Going by the reports, ‘Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari’ is a unique family comedy that draws humour from the quirks of its refreshing yet relatable characters. The world is set in the innocence of 1990s when there was no social media or mobile phones.
