Whosoever watched Netflix’s The White Tiger last year could not stop raving about Adarsh Gourav. His portrayal of Balram in the film won him raves from across the board. The BAFTA nominee actor has landed several exciting projects ever since. He will soon be seen in Scott Z. Burns’ anthology film Extrapolations wherein he shares the screen space with the likes of Meryl Streep, Sienna Miller, and Kit Harrington.
On the home-front, Adarsh Gourav has signed Excel Entertainment’s and Tiger Baby’s Kho Gaye Hum Kahan on the dotted line. The film also stars Siddhant Chaturvedi and Ananya Panday in important roles. Two completely different characters will once again give us a chance to witness his acting skills.
Siddhant Chaturvedi, who was last seen in Yash Raj Films’ Bunty Aur Babli 2 (2021), is presently gearing up for the premiere of his much-awaited film Gehraiyaan. Directed by Shakun Batra and produced by Karan Johar, the modern relationship drama also stars Deepika Padukone and Ananya Panday in prominent characters.
The actor will follow Gehraiyaan with Excel Entertainment’s Phone Bhoot, Yudhra, and Kho Gaye Hum Kahan. Phone Bhoot, a horror-comedy, also features Ishaan Khatter and Katrina Kaif. Yudhra, a romantic action thriller, sees him opposite Malavika Mohanan.
Kho Gaye Hum Kahan, also starring Ananya Panday and Adarsh Gourav, will give us a digital age story of three friends in Mumbai and one would expect all the nuances of coolness to fill the screens as is always the case with Excel Entertainment and Tiger Baby.
