Continuing with his trend of opting for heroines just out of their teens like Hansika Motwani, Shweta Kumar, Jennifer Kotwal for his films – Aap Ka Surroor, Karzzzz, Kajraare & Mudh Mudh Ke Na Dekh respectively, Himesh Reshammiya has gone on to add one more young newcomer opposite himself for the comedy Hhey Gujju starring him in a double role. South actress Lakshmi Rai has been signed opposite Himesh for this film being directed by Satish Kaushik.
Confirming the news, director Satish Kaushik says, “Since Himesh is playing double role in the film there are two leading ladies, one being Shruti Agrawal who has graduated from Anupam’s acting class and has been a model too. We have an actress from the south as the second leading lady.
This is second movie with Satish & Himesh frist was karzzz & second is Hye gujju
Himesh Reshammiya’s Hhey Gujju has new-bee, Shruti Agrawal as a lead opposite him. Hhey Gujju is a romantic-comedy flick directed by Satish Kaushik and produced by Studio 18. Shruti Agrawal plays an NRI girl who comes to India and falls in love with Himesh. Shruti has been a known face in the modeling world and has also attended Anupam Kher’s acting classes.
Hhey Gujju sounds very unique, “Studio 18 and Himesh had asked me to direct the film. It was Himesh who decided the name of the film. He is the biggest Gujarati star in Bollywood. The kind of adulation and fan following he has is simply amazing. As Akshay is the king among the Punjabis, Himesh is the king from Gujarat. After working with him in Karzzzz, I have realized his potential as a singer, composer, and as an actor. I think he is phenomenal and perfect for the part.
