We all know by now that Hats Off Productions is working on its first big screen project, on the lines of their very popular television show, Khichdi.
Though majority of the cast seen in the TV show has been roped in for the film, Vandana Pathak who played the aspiring widow, Jayshree will not be seen in the film.
According tour source, "Nimisha Vakharia, who was last seen in Hats Off's Shree, will be playing the role of Jayshree in the movie".
An excited Nimisha Vakharia told us, "I am happy to be part of big screen. This is my first movie, and I got this offer from JD at the last minute. Vandana Pathak who played this role on television became a house-hold name, but I am playing the character in my own way".
Talking about comparisons that will be made, Nimisha states, "The script and the performances are so strong that people will hardly get time to compare as they watch the film".
On working with Hats Off, the actress quips, "I have been associated with the production house earlier. It's fun to work with them and I had a great time shooting for the film. It was a laughter riot".
The movie Khichdi is 40% complete, and the whole team of Hats Off plans to complete it very soon.
We tried calling Vandana Pathak, but she remained unavailable.
