&pictures to air the World Television Premiere of ‘Manmarziyaan’ on Sunday, 26th May at 8 pm.
Manmarziyaan is a romantic comedy-drama that revolves around a love triangle starring Vicky Kaushal as Vicky, Taapsee Pannu as Rumi and Abhishek Bachchan as Robbie. Directed by Anurag Kashyap, the movie presents a classic love triangle, told with a fresh perspective where the characters are constantly oscillating between confusion and complex emotions.
Vicky Kaushal who plays Vicky Sandhu said, “Manmarziyaan is been one of the most liberating experiences for me as an actor. I believe the character Vicky Sandhu to be my alter ego and to completely surrender to that character and to the world of Anurag Kashyap was one of the most learning experiences for me. It was the first time I was collaborating with Tapsee and Abhishek and had a blast shooting with them. I really hope the fans watch the World Television Premiere of Manmarziyaan on &pictures as much as we enjoyed making the film.”
Essaying the role of Rumi, Taapsee Pannu said “When Kanika was narrating the script to me, I felt there was no challenge in portraying the character of Rumi. I’m a black or white person in real life, but this character is confused and indecisive. So, I couldn’t relate to her. Then, she said something which was the reason I took up the film. She told me, ‘Had it not been for that patch, it would have been a cakewalk for you.’ That became the selling point for me.”
Commenting on his character – Robbie, Abhishek Bachchan said, “I feel every actor brings a lot of himself or herself to a character and, also takes a lot back. There are several shades of me in Robbie and there are things about Robbie that I would love to emulate.”
Ahead of the World Television Premiere, the channel has planned a 360-degree marketing campaign to drive the core messaging of ‘Pyaar Full of Passion, Dil full of Confusion’.
