The movie stars Akshaye Khanna in the lead along with debutants Priyaank and Riva, adding to the star power of the project. Priyaank Sharma; son of veteran actress Padmini Kolhapure and cousin of one of the leading ladies of Bollywood Shraddha Kapoor is paired opposite Riva Kishan, daughter of the Bhojpuri superstar Ravi Kishan.
The makers revealed the character look of the two of the leads of the movie, and they look like they make quite the refreshing pair, bringing back the old school charm of the quintessential boy and girl.
This situational comedy, written by Brijendra Kala along with Karan V. Kashyap is content driven with the right amount of drama and masala with twists at places you wouldn’t expect. Sab Kushal Mangal is directed by Karan V. Kashyap, who has previously associated with Shaad Ali on Bunty Aur Babli, Shimit Amin on Chak De! India and Mani Ratnam on Raavan.
While Padmini Kolhapure and Ravi Kishan in every sense of the word are proud parents, Shraddha is elated that her younger brother is stepping into the world of entertainment,
“Aside from being one of the most amazing human beings I know, I feel like he has this inherent peace along with a burning flame, it’s such a rare combination to have both. I’m so happy for this new journey that he is embarking on, where he is realizing his dreams. He has been working super hard and I am sure that he will form a special bond with the audiences. I can’t give him any advice. I feel like all the advice we need we get from my dad and his mum who have made their marks in the history of Indian cinema. I just hope that we put it to good use and we make our families proud,” said Shraddha.
According to Riva and Priyaank they both have gotten lucky to be casted in a film that suited both of their personalities and also made for a perfect debut for them.
“I have always wanted to become an actor, I had read a lot of scripts and characters but Sab Kushal Mangal was the one that clicked with me and made for a perfect debut. This role has not only been a fulfilling challenge professionally but has visibly changed me as a person,” says Priyaank on his debut.
Riva, on the other hand feels the role will transform her into a person she has always been, “This role has led to a new journey, one that was on the horizon but it also came by so unexpectedly. It has made me feel connected to my roots again and I’m all in with the character now. I can’t wait to see a different version of myself on screen.”
