Manav Kaul is all set to play Vidya Balan's husband in her next comedy, Tumhari Sulu. Balan will be playing the role of a radio jockey in the film directed by Suresh Triveni.
In a statement, director Triveni said, "Our search for the character of Ashok lasted for two months. We finally zeroed down on Manav, who is a fine, seasoned actor capable of blending into different roles. We were looking for someone solid opposite Vidya and Manav fits the bill."
The actor, who is known for playing character roles, will be seen in his first leading role in Tumhari Sulu. Kaul is reportedly playing a senior manager at a factory who is married to the fun radio jockey character played by Vidya.
Balan, who is currently involved in the promotions for Begum Jaan, will be starting a final look test and script readings for the role. The actress is also expected to take dance lessons for her character in the film.
Tumhari Sulu is scheduled for a theatrical release in December.
