Model-turned-actor Dino Morea, who is known for such successful films as Raaz (2002), Gunaah (2002) and Aksar (2006), has been missing from the scene for quite a long time now. If you missed the actor all this while, the good news is that he is set to swing back in action, in a different avatar though.

Dino Morea is gearing up to produce a comedy film titled Helmet, under his production house DM Movies. The latest we hear that the actor-turned-producer has joined forces with Sony Pictures Networks Productions to produce the quirky comedy.

To be helmed by Satram Ramani, Helmet features Aparshakti Khurana and Pranutan Bahl in lead roles. Known for his rib-tickling performances in Stree (2018), Luka Chuppi (2019) and Pati Patni Aur Who (2019), Khurana will play the lead role for the first time in his career. Pranutan Bahl, granddaughter of iconic actress Nutan, debuted in Bollywood with Salman Khan Films’ Notebook (2019) where she received widespread praises for her performance.
