The cast of the movie Fukrey comprises a relatively new ensemble. Just like the movie that is about four youngsters who want to make it big, its four lead actors have their hopes set on it to hit the mark. Actor Pulkit Samrat, known as the famous 'Lakshya Virani' from television, failed to impress the box office with his movie Bittoo Boss. Similarly, Ali Fazal, who had a promising start with 3 Idiots, did not make a mark with the movie Always Kabhi Kabhi. Even for Manjot Singh of Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye! fame, the roles he bagged did not do much justice to his talent. Along with them is newbie Varun Sharma, who debuts with the movie.
The trailer of Fukrey promises to be a fun-filled movie. The movie, produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani and directed by Mrighdeep Singh Lamba, is set to release on June 14. The cast, just back from a promotional trip, seems a little tired. But that does not hide their excitement. Very comfortable in each other's presence, they share some laughs and stories about the maddest roller-coaster ride of their life.
Relatively new to the industry, the actors were excited about the project from the beginning. Manjot says the title of the movie did it for him. "I'm from Delhi, and I knew what 'fukrey' means — a slang for someone who is jobless or directionless. I knew it would be a fun film," he says. In the film, Hunny (Samrat) and Choocha (Sharma), who are both jobless, discover that the latter has a gift that can help them win the lottery every time they attempt. Using this to make it big, they rope in Lali (Manjot) and Zafar (Fazal). The foursome get into a lot of trouble and are bullied around by the woman gangster 'Bholi Punjaban' played by Richa Chadda.
