Ellipsis Entertainment and T-Series have inked their first deal together to produce a dra-medy titled 'Tumhari Sulu'. Vidya Balan will play the lead, Sulochana, fondly known as Sulu. Sulu lands herself an unexpected job of a beautiful, fun and feisty RJ who anchors a late-night show, known for its voyeuristic quality and semi-adult shenanigans.
Having brought director Ram Madhvani to the forefront with Neerja, the partners at Ellipsis are introducing the new-age ad film-maker, Suresh Triveni, who has a host of TVCs for top brands to his credit, including IPL's India-Pakistan Mauka Mauka spot, which became a runaway viral sensation.
Said joint producers Tanuj Garg, Atul Kasbekar and Shanti Sivaram Maini of Ellipsis, "In line with our vision of backing engaging and entertaining high-concept content, we are delighted to have found this gem of a script, which will make you cheer and laugh in plenty. The character of Sulu is fun, happy-go-lucky and grounded, everything that Vidya (Balan) is even in real life. Suresh Triveni is a debut talent to watch out for and we look forward to our association with T-Series, a market leader in the filmed entertainment space."
Director Suresh Triveni said, "Tumhari Sulu has been handcrafted for Vidya (Balan) and to have her as a lead in my first feature is an honour. I look forward to seeing the story come alive as I have lived with it for almost a year now. I am delighted to have found great producers, Ellipsis and T-Series, for this incredible journey." Concluded Vidya Balan, "Sulu is like that nimbu... you add nimbu for taste or then add it to balance taste; zesty & versatile! I think she'll unleash my naughty side."
