Zeenat Aman to share Bun Tikki with Shabana Azmi and Abhay Deol

There are several good reasons to anticipate Faraz Arif Ansari’s gender identity film Bun Tikki that goes on the floor coming November in Himachal Pradesh. And the top of that list is Zeenat Aman. The yesteryear actress, who in the last five months became Instagram’s most sought-after star with her throwback posts on life in Bollywood, loved the script and said it aligned with her ideas and beliefs and explores causes she feels strongly about. The film also stars Shabana Azmi and Abhay Deol in a strained father’s role.

Interestingly, Bun Tikki marks couturier Manish Malhotra’s entry into the industry as a producer. The subject has nothing to do with the glamour and glitz the designer is associated with but he’s keen on supporting lesser-known stories and voices. Faraz’s first feature film was the critically acclaimed short Sheer Qorma in 2021. Now, Bun Tikki. What’s with the food names in the titles?
