After tasting success as a producer in Bhojpuri film, Bam Bam Bol Raha Hai Kashi (2016), Priyanka Chopra went onto make two more regional films — Ventilator (2016) in Marathi and Sarvann (2017) in Punjabi. Recently, she also announced her Sikkimese-Nepalese film, Paua.
Now, she is all set to continue her stint with regional cinema with yet another Marathi film. It’s titled Kay Re Rascala and will be directed by first-timer I Giridharan. He has been a cinematographer for Marathi films, Mee Aani U (2013) and Well Done Bhalya (2016).
The cast of the film includes, Supriya Pathare, Gaurav Ghatnekar, Nikhil Ratnaparkhi, Akshar Kothari and Bhagyashree Mothe. Kay Re Rascala has already quitely gone on floors in Mumbai on Makar Sankranti (14 January). The next schedule will either take place in Kolhapur or Solapur.
Yesteryears actress Kunika Sadanand is the associate producer in Priyanka’s Purple Pebble Productions. She will also be acting in Kay Re Rascala since the director had approached her first for a role in the film. She said in an interview, “I liked the script so much that I shared it with Madhu ji, (Priyanka's mum, Madhu Chopra) and we decided to produce it after Priyanka gave her nod.
She also reveals the logic behind the unusual title. “It’s an entertaining comedy which blends Maharashtrian and South Indian cultures, hence the title Kay Re Rascalaa,” she said.
Priyanka made an appearance in Ventilator, which went on to become one of the biggest hits of 2016, and also sang a song. Kunika hinted that she might appear in this film too. “In Ventilator there was a role which required an actress but this film doesn’t. That said, Priyanka is our lucky charm, so she will do something but what it will be will depend on her availability,” she added.
Priyanka recently added a video on YouTube informing about Kay Re Rascala.
