Saiyami Kher made her acting debut with renowned filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Mirzya in 2016. Besides her, Mirzya also launched Anil Kapoor’s son Harshvardhan Kapoor in Bollywood. Despite being made on a huge scale and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra at the director’s chair, the big-ticket film failed to attract audiences to theatres and was termed as a disaster at the box-office.

After the epic failure of Mirzya, Saiyami Kher did not bag any new projects in Bollywood. But now it is learnt that filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has signed her on to play the female lead in his next film. Kashyap has recently laid the foundation of his new banner. The new project will be made under the same production house.

Though the title and other important details on the project are being strictly kept under wraps, rumours are rife that Malayalam actor Roshan Mathew has been cast to play the male lead opposite Saiyami Kher. Mathew is known for his sterling performances in such films as Aanandam (2016), Koode (2018) and Thottappan (2019), among others.
