Vidya Balan has finally found her perfect match. No, we are not talking about Sidharth Roy Kapur but Manav Kaul, who will be playing the character of Vidya’s husband in her next film, ‘Tumhari Sulu’.
The actor will be playing the character of a senior manager at a factory who is happily married to the Vidya’s character Sulochana, who is a radio jockey.
“Our search for the character of Ashok lasted for two months. We finally zeroed down on Manav, who is a fine, seasoned actor capable of blending into different roles. We were looking for someone solid opposite Vidya and Manav fits the bill,” said director Suresh Triveni in a statement.
Producer Atul Kasbekar went on to tag the actor the next Sanjeev Kumar of the industry.
We were looking for the next #SanjeevKumar to star opposite the brilliant @balanvidya in our next film #TumhariSulu We think we found him…? #EllipsisEnt and @tseries.official would like u to say hello to the superb #ManavKaul #actor #ProducerDiaries #casting #ellipsis #gem #theatre #nandinishrikent #BigShoesToFill
Manav thanked the producer on Twitter and wrote, “It’s not often that you get a chance to play Mr Right to the supremely talented Vidya Balan.”
