Actor Arvind Swamy, who made his Bollywood debut with Mani Ratnam’s 1992 film Roja, is returning to the Hindi film world with debutant director Tanuj Bhramar’s upcoming film Dear Dad.
Arvind is said to have chosen this film to return to Bollywood because he found the subject intriguing.
Dear Dad is a bitter-sweet coming of age story involving a father-son duo — 14 year old Shivam and his 45-year-old father Nitin Swaminathan, a statement said.
A description for the film read: “The father-son duo embark on an impromptu road trip from their home, in Delhi, to Mussoorie (Uttarakhand), where Shivam attends boarding school. Unexpected confessions, weird strangers, accidental meetings, a drunken escapade and singing in the rain – all these add up to a complicated tale.”
According to Arvind, who plays the father in the film, such concepts don’t get made very often and needs to be told, a source close to the actor said.
The poster of the film will be released on Friday.
