Back in the day when Dharmendra used to do cameos in Punjabi films, there were some attempts to cast Hema Malini too for cameos but somehow it could never happen, either due to her busy schedule or due to other reasons as well. But after all these years, she is finally venturing into Punjabi Cinema but as a producer with the film 'Mitti - Viraasat Babbaran Di'.
Film will be directed by Hriday Shetty, who earlier directed some big Hindi films like Plan, Pyar Mein Twist, to name a few. 'Mitti - Viraasat Babbaran Di' has been written by Lakhwinder Kandola, who will also be playing the lead role in it. Lakhwinder has earlier worked in Jatinder Mauhar's Mitti, which got cult status over the years.
'Mitti - Viraasat Babbran Di' is sequel to previous Mitti but it will be set in period as well as modern times. Though makers did not want to reveal the cast before official announcement but now, the actors have shared their excitement on social media and a few of those who are part of this project are Kuljinder Sidhu, Japji Khaira & Dheeraj Kumar.
Akanksha Sareen, who is currently doing Dulla Vailee will be one of the female leads in this film. Officially they will reveal the cast and other details of the film later this month.
Mohan Raghvan is the associate producer of the film and it's music will be done by Mr Wow. The film will release on 1st March, 2019.
