Richa Chadda, who received critical acclaim for her performance in Gangs of Wasseypur, is all set to play a mafia don in Fukrey. The title in Delhi slang means good for nothing.
Fukrey is a buddy comedy, revolving around Delhi-based youngsters and their life in high school and later in the college. Richa plays an important role and her character is called Boli Punjaban while Pulkit Samrat of Bittoo Boss fame plays the lead role.
Pre-production works are in progress and the rest of the cast and crew are being finalised. The film will go on floors in October.
Mrigdeep Singh Lamba makes his directorial debut with this film which is being produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani under the banner of Excel Entertainment.
