We recently reported that the sequel of Bunty Aur Babli had been confirmed that would mark the debut of Sharvari opposite Gully Boy actor Siddhant Chaturvedi. Now we have learnt that the debutante actress has got another project much before the release of her first film. While she has recently started working for Bunty Aur Babli 2, she has been roped in for a web series titled The Forgotten Army, according to a report in Mid-Day.
The show will be directed by Kabir Khan who has given successful films like New York, Ek Tha Tiger, and Bajrangi Bhaijaan. It also marks Khan’s directorial debut into digital space.
“To be announced as a heroine in Bunty Aur Babli 2 and launched as the female lead in Kabir Khan’s project, in a matter of few hours, was surreal. It is a validation that I’m on the right track,” she told the news daily. While the two projects mark Sharvari’s acting debut, she is not completely new to this world. She has previously worked as an assistant director on Luv Ranjan’s Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 (2015) and Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety (2018).
To star in a Yash Raj movie is a dream many aspiring actors as well as established ones nurture. Talking about the lead role in such a big banner’s movie, she said, “I have grown up watching Yash Raj movies. So, to be signed by them as a talent is a special feeling.
The Forgotten Army also features Sunny Kaushal, brother of Vicky Kaushal, and is scheduled to premier on 24 January next year on Amazon Prime Video.
