“Neena Gupta plays a prominent lead in the Kaashvi Nair film. She will essay the role of Arjun’s grandmother and the whole cross-border angle is regarding their characters. It is a humane relationship drama about a grandma and her grandchild, separated by borders,” a source close to the development informs an online publication.

The source goes on to add that the role Neena Gupta has been offered is nothing less than a female lead’s part. “Neenaji’s role is nothing less than a female lead’s part and it is also a never-seen-before role for the actress. When the makers were ideating on the script, she was their first choice and Neena loved the role. It will also have a very emotional angle between Arjun and Neenaji’s characters that will drive the whole narrative,” the source adds in conclusion.
