This is not an Anupama Chopra-esque write-up but boy! Have you guys seen the trailer of Made In Heaven

Co-created by Reema Kagti and Zoya Akhtar, Made In Heaven narrates a story about two wedding planners based in Delhi and how they jostle to strike a balance between traditions and modern aspirations, while mystery unravels against the backdrop of a big, fat Indian wedding. With offbeat actors like Shashank Arora, Sobhita Dhulipala, Shivani Raghuvanshi among others, the pool of talent, aka, the star cast in Made In Heaven is something that has got me the most excited! Here is a quick sneak peek into the offbeat actors from the upcoming show…

Shashank Arora

Did you know 2 of his 7 films so far have won accolades at Cannes? Shashank Arora is not a stranger to those who frequent films that have a strong social message or have deep roots in the Indian society. After Titli, we have got our hopes soaring, as we spotted Shashank in the Made In Heaven trailer.

Sobhita Dhulipala

Bagged a pivotal role in Raman Raghav 2.0 in 45 minutes, started shoot in two days and wrapped in 10 days. And, she even got nominated for Critics’ Choice Award for Best Supporting Actor, for her role in Raman Raghav 2.0, her debut film. Damn! That’s pretty overwhelming, right? Playing an independent mother in Chef, a conflicted Mumbai girl in Kaalakaandi, Sobhita is a character actor we love to watch.  

Shivani Raghuvanshi

Starring opposite Shashank Arora for her debut film, Titli, Shivani Raghuvanshi is a sureshot powerhouse! A typical chhote seheron se aane wali, with big Mumbai dreams, Shivani really took us for a roller coaster ride with her first film. I don’t know about you, but spotting her in the trailer has really got me excited!

Arjun Mathur

Striking a perfect balance between good looks and great talent, Arjun Mathur has never failed to leave an impression on his audience. Okay, I’m not being biased about his suave looks, but Arjun Mathur is surely a star of independent cinema. 

Shweta Tripathi 

Masaan is one of my favourite films and the simplicity with which Shweta Tripathi recited poems by Faiz Ahmed Faiz, is indelible. Wonder what ageing cream she used for Haraamkhor, for playing a 15-year-old school girl, in love with her teacher! So convincing, have to give it to her. Don’t judge me, but I got my cheap thrills from watching her Charlotte-like role in the all-girl web series, The Trip.

Jim Sarbh

From playing a hijacker in Neerja, to Khilji’s right-hand man in Padmaavat – Jim Sarbh has really come a long way as four of his films were played at the Indian Film Festival in Melbourne. Oh, and did I mention that his smile and dreamy curls are motivation enough to watch his movies? No, no, I mean he has got great acting skills. Like, who else could have played the cold-hearted Malik Kafur, and yet make our hearts melt? Every time I see him, my heart goes like Binte Dil Misriya Mein….Binta Dil Misriya Mein. 

And, the list does not end there. Made In Heaven will also feature veteran actors like Vinay Pathak, Neena Gupta, Kalki Koechlin, Neenu Kohli among others. Sounds too good to be true, right?
