    Madhuri Dixit Nene and Saiyami Kher come together for Ayushmann Khurrana’s wife Tahira Kashyap’s directorial debut After a strong struggle with cancer, survivor Tahira Kashyap is gung-ho about returning to work. And what will be her next venture? An announcement about the same was made last year! She was signed by Bhushan Kumar, Atul Kasbekar and Tanuj Garg for a film tentatively titled Sharma Ji Ki Beti. And now, reports have it that this film will feature Madhuri Dixit Nene and Saiyami Kher in lead roles.

She started off with shorts first and kicked off her entry into direction with the film Toffee, a small film about two ten year old girls it showcases their journey of friendship with each other and under currents of the deep rooted child marriage tradition. This time around too, Kashyap is keen on taking up a female-oriented story as the script for Sharma Ji Ki Beti.

The film is expected to feature Madhuri Dixit in an author-backed role but the details of her character are kept under wraps.

  • Why Cheat India: Emraan Hashmi's bold move for needy students!

    Why Cheat India: Emraan Hashmi's bold move for needy students! Why Cheat India has already stirred a few hornets in its build up. From a confident release date preponement to being nudged towards a title change by the Censors, the movie is asking questions. When asked what drove him to do this film, Emraan said it was a combination of a pertinent topic and a searing script. He adds, “Bizarre as it seems, we actually had 5-6 people in our unit that had actually appeared for someone else in proxy for an exam, or the other way around! And in a spot poll, almost 70% of our unit admitted to have cheated in at least one exam.” “From rampant malpractices in the education system, an outdated syllabus in most subjects, underpaid and ill qualified staff, are enough and more reason for a complete relook and overhaul of the education processes in India. The fact that one day of a competitive exam can decide your fate is, for me, the scariest thought!” Emraan pointed out. He adds, "I'd like to sort out a few talented kids who have a genuine attitude towards certain subjects and are being denied the opportunity and/or access. I’ve requested my lawyers to look at the mechanics of supporting them financially to get to the courses that they are inclined towards. A share of my profits as a co-producer will be allocated towards this purpose." Why Cheat India has been produced by Bhushan Kumar's T-Series, Tanuj Garg and Atul Kasbekar's Ellipsis Entertainment and Parveen Hashmi's Emraan Hashmi Films. It releases on January 18, 2019.
