Vinay Pathak and Manoj Pahwa unite for the first time in comedy film 'Khajoor Pe Atke'


Actors Vinay Pathak and Manoj Pahwa are a class act when it comes to comedy. The two ace actors can make light of any scene and crack you up with their effortless comic timing. After regaling the audience for years with their comic roles in films they are finally coming together on screen for the first time in Harsh Chhaya’s directorial debut Khajoor Pe Atke.

Vinay and Manoj play brothers in this comedy film. Manoj plays the older of the two who has a hyper-emotional nature. The trailer of the film is out and giving everyone a reason to smile. Their family reunion brings in various members of their family who start a riot under one roof. The film, we are sure, will be one of the hilarious films of the year and given the two stalwart actors the punchlines will not be crass or slapstick but clean and funny based on the situations.

The film is laden with tongue-in-cheek humour and revolves around members of a dysfunctional family and how they react in the face of impending tragedy. The two actors have hit off famously on the sets and even when they are acting they never leave any opportunity to make people laugh. The film will definitely be great for the audience who love watching comedy and these two actors have their own cult following.

Speaking about the film actor-director Harsh Chhaya said, “Khajoor Pe Atke is inspired by my own experiences with people around me – family, friends, neighbours and life in general. It is born out of incidences from within my family. In a way, one can say it is autobiographical and everyone can relate to it, as every Indian family has experienced such hilarity during an emotional crisis."

Khajoor Pe Atke as the title suggests is a comedy film that revolves around death. It is written and directed by actor Harsh Chhaya who is all set to make his directorial debut with this film. The film stars Manoj Pahwa, Vinay Pathak, Dolly Ahluwalia, Seema Pahwa, Sanah Kapoor and Suneeta Sengupta. The film is produced by Welcome Friends Production and presented by S.O.I.E. The film is slated to release on May 18, 2018.
