Mumbai: "Gully Boy" actor Vijay Varma has been roped in for Nikhil Nagesh Bhatt's next directorial "Hurdang", a love story set in Prayagraj.
"Hurdang" is being touted as a love story set in the backdrop of 1990s, a time when the youth fought for their rights and spent a great deal of time to find self-realisation and had a strong desire to stand up and grab and stand up for the rights.
"I'm looking forward to work with this wonderful team, and can't wait to explore this challenging part. Excited to go back to the 1990s," Vijay said in a statement.
