New Delhi: Bollywood actor Manoj Bajpai will be seen playing the role of a goldsmith in quirky new comedy "Dus Tola", inspired by folk tales.
"Dus Tola" tells the story of a quaint little town Sonapur where Shankar (Manoj), the local goldsmith, is head-over-heels in love with his neighbour’s daughter Suvarnalata (Aarti Chhabria) much to the chagrin of her father Daya Shastri (Dilip Prabahvalkar).
Shastri is bent upon finding her a suitable groom from Dubai and cover her with gold at the wedding which will help him climb up the social ladder. Armed with nothing but a heart of pure gold, Shankar sets out to overcome the obstacles of devious plots and heartache.
The film, directed by debutant director Ajoy, also stars Siddharth Makkar, Govind Namdeo, Asrani, Ninad Kamath, Bharti Achrekar and newcomer Pallavi Sharda.
