Last seen in One By Two, Abhay Deol has now bagged his next film, that's to be directed by cinematographer Sethu Sriram. The film in question is titled SNAFU and will also feature Manjot Singh alongwith Abhay. Sethu Sriram of Wanted and OMG Oh My God! fame was keen on signing Abhay since he knew that Abhay could pull this off well. After many readings, one hears that Abhay is convinced and pretty charged up about the role. For starters, 'SNAFU' is term that has originated in the army, it means Situations Normal All F****ed Up.
In the film, Abhay will be essaying the character of Kabir Taneja, a young highflying corporate consultant in Mumbai mediating mega deals with most men with big money. And Manjot will play the character of Sunny Singh, a meek and submissive slum dweller. SNAFU is a thriller around common place situations as the title suggests its intense mind games.
The film will be majorly shot in Pune and parts in Mumbai. The film also boasts of an ensemble cast which supports the plot. While the Pune based Dolly Gadhoke is the producer of the film, SNAFU will also see the launch of the production house 'Tanaria Stars'.
Talking about the development, Sriram said, "Yes, Abhay and Manjot have been signed on for my project. Both the characters are absolute contrasts and I wanted strong actors to shoulder these two roles. Both, Abhay and Manjot have very different styles and it will be great to see them paired up on screen. We have had reading sessions with both of them and we are all geared up to roll'.
The rest of the details of the film are yet to be finalized.
