After being the talk of the town for a while, Vardhan Puri, the grandson of legendary actor Amrish Puri, is set to make his big Bollywood debut alongside another debutante Shivaleeka Oberoi. The duo will feature in a twisted tale of love in a film titled Yeh Saali Aashiqui. Produced by Dr. Jayantilal Gada and Amrish Puri Films, this Bollywood romantic thriller has been directed by Cherag Ruparel.
The film’s trailer ensures that its gripping story will keep audiences on the edge of their seats. It introduces us to a failed love story that takes a very sour turn with both debutants being interrogated by the police for an alleged assault. Shivaleeka Oberoi’s character accuses a man of being a crazed stalker while Sahil, played by Vardhan Puri, states that she is his former girlfriend. Experience this thrilling glimpse yourself with the following trailer.
The story and screenplay of Yeh Saali Aashiqui comes from the film’s lead actor Vardhan Puri and director Cherag Ruparel. Having started his acting journey with theatre at the tender age of five, it seems like Vardhan has gone all out for his big-screen debut. The actor is said to have visited a mental hospital and the Central Jail to get deeper into his complex character. Speaking of this role, he stated, “It is emotionally one of the most difficult yet satisfying phases of my life playing Sahil Mehra. It’s like playing five different characters at the same time. Since the character is so layered and nuanced, there are so many emotions involved. Sahil reacts very quickly and is an extremist.”
Originally titled Paagal, the film was renamed after an objection from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). Yeh Saali Aashiqui also features actors Swami Om and Jessey Lever in the cast. The soundtrack for the film has been composed by Hitesh Modak with lyrics by Tanveer Ghazi. If you love a good nail-biting thriller, watch Yeh Saali Aashiqui once it releases on 29th November.
