Chhappad Phaad Ke: Vinay Pathak to star in Hotstar’s comedy film

Vinay Pathak is all set to star in ‘Chhappad Phaad Ke’, a comedy film which will begin streaming on Hotstar from October 18.

Pathak has already proven his comic timing as an actor with Bheja Fry, a film which has gained somewhat of a cult following.

He said in a statement: “It’s a great time for filmmakers and actors alike, given the increasing demand for newer content. There is a new brand of cinema that is moving beyond the typical multiplex setting and directly into the homes of millions of people – and that excites me.

“Hotstar Specials movie Chhappad Phaad Ke explores the intrinsic relationship of morals and money in the life of a middle-class family – it is a story that will find resonance with audiences across the country.”

The official synopsis of the film reads: “Chhappad Phaad Ke revolves around the Gupchup family, a living template of Indian middle-class household living in Pune. Everything about their life was ordinary, until the extraordinary day when they discover a bag full of unclaimed money.

“Locked in a bag and hidden behind layers of clothes, this unused stash of money manages to emanate its vicious tentacles to engulf and tear the basic fabric of this everyday family.”

Directed by Sameer Hemant Joshi, Chhappad Phaad Ke also stars Siddharth Menon, Sheetal Thakur and Ayesha Raza. It is produced by Saregama India Limited’s film division Yodlee Films.
