TV actor Parth Samthaan to debut opposite Shahid’s sister Sanah


Television actor Parth Samthaan is all set to make his Bollywood debut opposite Shahid Kapoor’s sister Sanah Kapoor. Sanah recently made her acting debut with brother Shahid Kapoor’s film ‘Shaandaar’ starring Alia Bhatt.  Parth has been signed opposite Sanah for an untitled romantic comedy.

“It is true. I don’t want to talk about it much because we are trying to keep it a little low key for now. The film is about to start and we are figuring out a few details.It is a romantic comedy backed by lot of strong characters,” Parth told PTI.

The film will be directed by Karan Kashyap, who has assisted filmmaker Mani Ratnam, and assisted directors on films like ‘Chak De India!’, ‘Don’ and ‘Saathiyaa’. The film also stars Paresh Rawal and Sanah’s father Pankaj Kapur.

“We have Paresh Rawal, Pankaj Kapur on board. I am nervous to share screen space with them. I will soon start my workshop and will try matching up to these great actors,” Parth said.

Best known for playing Manik Malhotra in the popular show ‘Kaisi Yeh Yaariyan’. Parth says his role in the film will be a mature one and not youthful. “It is not a ‘youth’ film. My show is youthful, but the film will be a proper mature, family drama with well written characters. It is in that genre,” he said.

He is excited to team with the ‘Shaandaar’ actress. “I am very happy. Sanah is very exciting. We will soon start working on our roles. Next month we will have our sitting where we will discuss the film, narration and everything,” the actor said.

The film will hit the floor on February 2016 and will hit the screens later next year.
