The hit jodi of Ishqiya Naseeruddin Shah and Arshad Warsi will be teaming up once again for a new project. The film,which will be directed by Maqbool Khan,is titled Chambal Safari. While Warsi was confirmed for the project long ago,Shah is the latest to join the team. Interestingly,the duo will
be recreating the chemistry they shared in Vishal Bhardwajs Ishqiya.
Talking about their roles,a source close to the project revealed,Both Arshad and Naseer are dacoits. Arshad is the younger one while Naseer is elder one. In the film,Arshads dadaji was once a big dacoit of Chambal. He was a powerful man and there is a temple built in his name in the village. Unfortunately,his son Arshad is a loser. Dacoit ki ab koi dehshat nahi hai,Chambal mein,(there is no terror of the dacoit in Chambal),so both Arshad and Naseer have lost all their wealth and eke out a living on the money that is collected in the donation box of the temple.
While Arshad and Naseer are confirmed for the project,the producers have yet to finalise the female lead. The team wants someone to play a Haryanvi Jat woman. She will play the role of a teacher,who comes from Delhi and later falls in love with Arshad. Chambal Safari will go on floors by January-February,next year.
