Maneesh Sharma has had a good track record of casting newcomers who have garnered appreciation along with awards for their debut performances.The list includes Ranveer Singh for 'Band Baaja Baaraat', Parineeti Chopra for 'Ladies vs Ricky Bahl' and Vaani Kapoor for 'Shuddh Desi Romance'. All three managed strong performances despite it being their debut films.
Maneesh Sharma is now turning producer for his next, 'Dum Laga Ke Haisha' starring Ayushmann Khurrana and debutant Bhumi Pednekar in lead roles.
Bhumi is the new talent to be launched by Yash Raj Films. She does seem to be talented enough and shows great promise. It will be interesting to see whether Bhumi continues the tradition and win a debut award in the next award season!
The trailer of Dum Laga Ke Haisha has been appreciated from all quarters and has built up anticipation for the film. Directed by Sharat Katariya, Dum Laga ke Haisha is scheduled for release on 27th February.
