Jaaved Jaaferi to play RAW agent


Mumbai: Known for his prowess in comic roles, Jaaved Jaaferi will be trying his hand at a serious role. He will be playing a RAW agent in upcoming flick “Ishq forever”.

The actor finds ‘serious’ character roles a little too intriguing for him to essay in a romantic drama.

“I will be seen playing a RAW agent, who is deployed to protect the daughter of the Prime Minister of India and what was intriguing for me was that I play a very serious character,” Jaaved said in a statement.

“I will be shown teaming up with my ex-wife (Lisa Ray) for this mission, and the uncomfortable situation that arises because of this is another plot that runs simultaneously with the love story of the lead pair,” he added.

The actor will be all suited up for his role. He will be adorning a three-piece suit throughout the film. The star cast includes newcomers Krishna Chaturvedi and Ruhi Singh. The movie will be directed by Sameer Sippy and produced by Ajay Shah. The movie is slated to be released on February 19th.
