She received positive reviews for her performance in Gangs of Wasseypur. And now, it seems Richa Chadda has already been cast in Kaacha Love Pakke Dost, which marks the directorial debut of casting director Mukesh Chhabra. It is likely to go on the floors towards the end of this
year.

“Mukesh has already discussed the script with Richa, who will star in it. In essence, the story is about three friends — two boys and a girl — and their experience in Mumbai as they struggle to become Bollywood actors,” says an insider close to Mukesh.

The debutant director has, till date, cast for films like Rockstar (2011), Kaminey (2009), Gangs of Wasseypur and forthcoming big budget flicks like the Ranbir Kapoor-Anushka Sharma starrer Bombay Velvet and Rajkumar Hirani’s P.K.

Besides Richa, Mukesh’s film will also star Raj Kumar Yadav (he acted in Ragini MMS) and Aakash Dahiya, who got rave reviews for playing Googly in the National Award-winning Chillar Party (2011).

While Mukesh is believed to have wrapped up work on the script, he is yet to finalise other details since he is busy with the casting process for the Aamir Khan-starrer P.K.

“Since it is an elaborate project, Mukesh doesn’t have much free time. But his film will start towards the end of the year. It will be a slice-of-life movie where you will see glimpses from his real life too,” adds the insider.

When contacted, Mukesh reacted with surprise: “It’s too early to talk about my film. I will speak in detail when the time is right.”
