Comic actor Vinay Pathak will be seen next in Dasvidaniya, a film conceived by him and director Shashant Shah about "the funnier side of everyday existence".
A comedy, Dasvidaniya stars Ranvir Shorey, Rajat Kapoor, Neha Dhupia, Saurabh Shukla and Suchitra Pillai apart from Pathak himself.
"It is about an ordinary man called Amar Kaul, who has high objectives in life. But as he cannot put the objectives in proper perspective, as most of us do in real life, he falters at every step. The movie will take the audience on a roller-coaster comic ride with Amar," Pathak told IANS.
Dasvidaniya is being produced by One More Thought Entertainment, promoted by former aviation entrepreneur Pavez Damania and producer Azam Khan, in association with Lemontea Productions floated by Pathak and director Shashant Shah.
"One More Thought believes in quality work. Our first release Tingya, an award-winning Marathi venture that is now running to packed houses in Maharashtra, has already testified it. We are producing Dasvidaniya in association with Lemontea Productions because we have full faith in the brand of intelligent comedy Vinay Pathak is known for," Khan, CEO of One More Thought Entertainment, said while announcing their new venture earlier this week.
One More Thought Entertainment was launched in February, announcing 12 movies to be made in a span of three years. While its first production Tingya is already doing well, the company's forthcoming releases are Ram Gopal Verma's Phoonk and Khalbali Hai Khalbali by Ajay Chandok. Both the movies are scheduled for release by the year-end.
Damania, executive director of the company, said the movie was a bitter-sweet situational comedy "brilliantly conceived by Vinay Pathak and Shashant Shah".
