Mumbai: Actress Kitu Gidwani, who received critical acclaim for her roles in movies like “Dance of the Wind”, “Earth” and “Rukhmavati Ki Haveli”, has been roped in to play one of the significant characters in "Meet The Patels".
Kitu will essay the role of Rita Patel in the film.
"I was excited to play the part as the character had several uncanny quirks. I had to dance with tribals, run away from a wedding and do a lot of mad stuff which I thoroughly enjoyed," said the actress.
The film is based in Mumbai and is about two Gujarati boys Tom Patel and Jerry Patel, who know how to live life to the fullest and would do anything except hard work.
Directed by Saurabh Verma, the film also features Shazahn Padamsee, Shiv Pandit, Kettan Singh and Vaishali Desai.
"Having Kitu on board has just changed the dynamics of the film. She looks so cute and vibrant on screen that she can give any lead heroine of the present a run for their money," said the director.
The film will release next year
