Minissha Lamba as Telugu girl in Benegal’s film
Model-turned actress Minissha Lamba who sizzled in Yash Raj Films in “Bachna Ae Haseena”, is now playing the role of an Andhra ammayi from Chikkadpalli in Shyam Benegal’s next “Well Done Abba”.
Minissha is in Hyderabad as Shyam Benegal is shooting his film in the Ramoji Film City and the rural environs of Ibrahimpatnam. The actress has employed a coach to teach her some dialogues in Telugu and in Hyderabadi accented Urdu.
The film originally named “Abba Ka Kua’ stars Boman Irani in a double role along with Minissha Lamba and Sammir Dattani. This comedy is based on two short stories; ‘Narsaiyyan Ki Bavdi’ by Jeelani Bano and ‘Phulwa Ka Pul’ by Sanjeev. The film treatment has been done by Jayant Kriplani and the screenplay has been written by Ashok Mishra. Music for the film has been composed by Shantanu Moitra.
“Well Done Abba” is due for release in September.
