There was a time when Bollywood came up with quite a few multi starrers. The trend was prevalent especially in the 70s and the 80s. Soon it all started boiling down to two hero films and currently even that trend has diminished as most of the films have just one leading man. Same is true for the supporting cast as well which is not quite filling up the frames in a similar manner as before.

Well, there is a surprise in store as Manoj K Jha directed Family of Thakurganj is one of those rare films which has a huge supporting cast to its name.

“That’s because this is the kind of stage and set up that writer Dilip Shukla has put together for this film which has Jimmy Sheirgill and Mahie Gill in the lead. While the two actors hold truly prominent parts, newcomers Nandish Sandhu (recently seen in Super 30 as Hrithik Roshan’s brother) and Pranati Rai Prakash would be seen romancing as well. However, there are many other important characters in the film and the makers handpicked the actors to bring them alive on screen,” our source attached to the film reveals.

These are Saurabh Shukla, Supriya Pilgaonkar, Pavan Malhotra, Mukesh Tiwari, Yashpal Sharma, and Manoj Pahwa.

“Each one of these is a name to reckon with. Whenever they come on screen, you know that there would be fireworks galore,” an insider comments, “Moreover, what makes their part distinct are the kind of dialogues that they have got to mouth in the film. Family of Thakurganj is a film which is really heavy on drama and powerful dialogues further lend it a lot of weight.”

Add to them other supporting actors like Raj Zutshi, Salil Acharya, Sudhir Pandey and Shivika Rishi, and one can well expect quite a few characters to fill up the frame once Ajay Kumar Singh produced Family of Thakurganj hits the screens on 19th July.
