On the work front, Fatima Sana Shaikh will be seen in Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari. The Abhishek Sharma-directorial also stars Diljit Dosanjh and Manoj Bajpayee in the lead. The movie went on floors in January this year where the director said that the team has attempted to recreate ’90s Mumbai with a massive set to showcase a chawl where they were set to shoot.
This is for the first time that moviegoers will see Manoj Bajpayee, Diljit Dosanjh And Fatima Sana Shaikha together on a big screen. 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.
