After appearing in an ultra-glamorous avatar in ‘Kidnap', Minissha Lamba will now be seen in a non-glamorous role in Benegal's forthcoming film, “Well Done Abba” which is a political satire. The film, produced by Reliance Big Pictures, is inspired by two short stories - “Narsaiyyan Ki Bavdi” by Jeelani Bano and “Phulwa Ka Pul” by Sanjeev.
The story of the film revolves around Armaan Ali (Boman Irani), a driver working in Mumbai who takes a month's leave to find a husband for his teenaged daughter, who lives in a small neighborhood near Hyderabad. But he returns to his job after three months with a good reason for the delay.
“At first I was really scared to work with Mr. Benegal. But once we started shooting, he turned out to be a really calm, jovial and humorous person. We never saw him upset on the sets,” says Minissha about the film and the director.Releasing March 26, it also stars Samir Dattani, Ila Arun, Ravi Kisshan, Sonali Kulkarni and Yashpal Sharma.
