Manish Malhotra, known for his contributions to the fashion world, is now trying his hands into film production. The fashion designer has now announced his second film, Bun Tikki. An excited Manish Malhotra also mentioned that the team is all set to kick off shooting for the project in the coming weeks. What makes this project more exciting is the reunion of legendary actresses Zeenat Aman and Shabana Azmi on the silver screen. Zeenat and Shabana previously shared screen space in Ishk Ishk Ishk (1974) and Ashanti (1982). Bun Tikki also stars the talented Abhay Deol. Manish shared a picture of these three actors on Instagram and provided details about the project.

Manish wrote, “The Great Shabana Azmi and Zeenat Aman both I have been a huge fan of, from their movies to their songs to their clothes. They are so different from each other and both have memorable movies and cinema moments that we all love. It gives me so much happiness that they are coming together after decades for our second production being made by our passionate and intimate Stage 5 Production for a film called Bun Tikki, a sensitive film written and directed by Faraz Arif Ansari and starring with them is the Uber talented Abhay Deol. Shooting starts this month and we are all so excited about this unique film.”

Soon after the fashion designer made the announcement, director Faraz Arif Ansari thanked him and replied, “Manish Malhotra, I keep saying this over and over again and I mean it, you are the BEST PRODUCER I could’ve ever asked for. Thank you for being my North Star. Thank you for being my guiding light. But most importantly, thank you for making me a part of the glorious MM Family. So grateful to you. Tight hugs.”

In September, Manish had shared the poster for Bun Tikki, which featured a beautiful painting showing a child playing with his father. Currently, the team has chosen to keep the majority of the details under wraps, due to which cinema lovers are eager to witness the final outcome of this intriguing project.

Apart from Bun Tikki, Manish Malhotra is set to produce another film titled Train from Chhapraula. The movie will feature Radhika Apte, Divyenndu Sharma and Kusha Kapila, with Tisca Chopra taking the director’s chair for the project. On the other hand, the fashion designer has also confirmed his involvement in the biopic on legendary actress Meena Kumari, with Kriti Sanon being considered for the lead role.
