Mumbai, Sep 13 (PTI) Actor Namit Das has started shooting for his upcoming film "Aafat-E-Ishq".
The Zee Studios production kicked off its shoot a few days ago in Nasik with necessary safety precautions in place in view of the coronavirus pandemic.
The film, based on the 2015 Hungarian black comedy "Liza, The Fox-Fairy", is directed by Indrajit Nattoji.
It features an ensemble cast of Das, Ila Arun, Amit Sial, Vikram Kochhar, Deepak Dobriyal and Neha Sharma.
"The original Hungarian film is a favourite of those who love world cinema and it's amazing for me to be working on its Indian adaptation with such a talented ensemble cast.
"It's a very unique, quirky rendition of the original movie and I hope to entertain viewers through it," Das said in a statement.
"Aafat-E-Ishq" will stream on ZEE5 later this year.
Das currently stars in Mira Nair's "A Suitable Boy", a screen version of Vikram Seth's novel, adapted by Andrew Davies. The show premiered on BBC One in the UK and will available on Netflix for Indian audiences. PTI JUR RB
