Actor Parineeti Chopra, who is known for her work in films such as Ishaqzaade and Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl, recently saw portions of Mere Dad Ki Maruti and enjoyed the performance by the film’s lead, Saqib Saleem. “I recently got to see Saqib’s performance in his upcoming film and I think he’s done a really good job,” says Parineeti. This is Saqib’s second outing with Yash Raj Films after Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge (2011). Not many know that he was a chef. “Saqib was a chef before he entered the film industry. However, he was keen to try his hand on acting,” said his spokesperson. The film, directed by Ashima Chibber, will introduce a new face, VJ Rhea Chakraborty, who will be seen playing a Chandigarh bombshell. Mere Dad Ki Maruti is a comedy set in Chandigarh that tells the story of a good-for-nothing guy, who sneaks out his dad’s car to impress a college hottie and how all hell breaks loose when he loses the car. The film, which is scheduled for a March 15 release, also features actors Ram Kapoor, Prabal Panjabi and Ravi Kishan in supporting roles.
