Says Mehmood, “The film is titled Adla Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Badli and as the title suggests, it is an out and out comedy film and a complete family entertainer. With actors like Sachin and Ashok Saraf playing the main protagonists, you cannot expect a serious film! It also features Teja Deokar, Viju Khote, Anand Abhyankar and Vinay Yedekar. The film is being made under my banner, H R Films and is presented by the Pittie Group in association with Victoria Entertainments. We have started recording songs for the film under the baton of music director Amar Haldipur. We have even shot for a couple of days and are awaiting dates of the main stars.”
