Actors Vinay Pathak and Sayani Gupta are coming together for the first time in Axone, a bittersweet comedy produced by Yoodlee Films. The film has an interesting concept that revolves around racism in New Delhi.
Vinay, who is known for his comic timing and acting in films like Challo Dilli, Bheja Fry series, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Badlapur and Gour Hari Dastaan, is coming back with the comedy genre after a long time.
Siddharth Anand Kumar, from Yoodlee Films said, “It is the first time we’re having such an intriguing pair of actors on stage. Sayani has such powerful performances under her belt and Vinay is the undisputed leader of subtle comic timing. The film is hard hitting and I hope the audiences like it.”
The film is written and directed by Nicholas Kharkongor. “Both Vinay and Sayani make distinct impressions when you see their work. I’ve been wanting to work with them, and when I thought of this movie, I could see them in their roles. It feels like the film was made to have them both together,” said the director about such an unusual pairing.
The film unravels the inherent racism that people have in the city, towards anybody who has slightly different cultural and social background.
