Maarrich features Tusshar Kapoor in the role of a cop called Rajiv who lands up with a complicated double murder case. Apart from him and Naseeruddin Shah, well-known television actress Anita Hassanandani also plays a brief yet important crucial part in the film.
Kapoor and Hassanandani have previously worked together on such films as Kucch To Hai (2003) and Yeh Dil (2003). The duo will be sharing the screen space once again after a massive gap of 18 years.
Tusshar Kapoor also shared his look as a police officer while announcing the film on social media. Going by the pictures shared by the actor, Naseeruddin Shah seems to be playing the character of a priest in the movie. Directed by Dhruv Lather, the film is expected to release in 2021 itself. An official announcement is awaited though.
