It is going to be a sizzling August in Jodhpur where the impressive multi-cultural cast of Gurinder Chadha's new film The Viceroy's House will soon gather.
The film chronicles the last months of Lord Mountbatten and his wife Edwina's stay in India before British rule ended.
The very talented British actor Hugh Bonneville, who has endeared himself to critics and audiences playing a gallery of real-life characters including John Bayley and Sir Christopher Wren, is playing Lord Mountbatten, while Gillian Anderson of X Files plays his wife Edwina.
Interestingly the film casts Huma Qureshi with Manish Dayal in a romantic space. Manish was the critics' delight last year as the Indian chef in France in Lasse Hailstrom's well-received The 100 Foot Journey. Manish, who rose to instant stardom, would be happy to have his screen-dad Om Puri from The 100 Foot Journey back as a co-star in Chadha's film.
Chadha is working with Om Puri for the first time. As too the rest of her impressive cast, Sara Jane Dias is also a part of The Viceroy's House.
The historical film has been scripted by Gurinder Chadha along with her husband Paul Berges, and Moira Buffini.
The film to be produced by Pathe, BBC Films and Reliance is slated to go on floor in Jodhpur from August 31.
