Pakistani Actor and King of Comedy, Umer Sharif, has worked for Indian film industry before, but mostly it was during concert shows or award functions where he used to perform. But now he has been offered to play a part in a film by Karan Johar and he has accepted this chance. Umer Sharif will be seen playing a supporting role in a big way and not just an appearance of sorts.
Since he prefers speaking his own mind in his own way, so he will also be writing his own dialogues and scenes in the film. He had been offered many such roles before, but this is the first time he will be seen in an Indian film. He is expected to leave for India for the shooting of the film in March.
The film is also said to star Priyanka Chopra, Lara Dutta, Boman Irani and Shahrukh Khan. The genre of the film is not yet known, but inferring just by the cast line-up, it seems like a romantic comedy. When Sharif is there, a little satirical humor could always be expected. So lets hope that this new venture of Sharif turns out to be successful.
