Actress Kiara Advani has landed her first "in and as" film -- "Indoo Ki Jawani".

"'Indoo Ki Jawani'. My first 'In and As'. So excited to collaborate with Emmay Entertainment, Nikkhil Advani, Monisha Advani, Madhu Bhojwani, Niranjan Iyengar, Ryan Stephen and Abir Sengupta for the first time and it had to be as special as Indoo. We need all your love and support for this one," Kiara tweeted on Monday.


In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, Kiara who was all “fired up” about her first female-centric film, said, “Indoo is edgy, lovable and quirky. The dialect is completely new so I’m going to do a lot of workshops to get it right. I can’t wait to start shooting.” She further said that the story is relevant in today’s time and with the character’s background and setting, the film is really exciting.

She can't wait to get started on the project. Nikkhil Advani says it is a "cracker script" by writer-director Abir Sengupta.

"We had to swipe right (hope I got that right!). Kiara you're just going to make Indoo come alive," he tweeted.

Talking about never having used dating apps, Kiara said, “Nope, but I have friends using these apps and have heard a lot of fun stories of their experiences. But nothing compared to what we have for you.” 

Producer Nikkhil Advani also spoke to MM and talked about his first collaboration with the actress. He said, “Some time ago, my daughter Keya came to my office and while looking at the posters of the films we have made so far asked matter-of-factly why all of them had only men and no women. Around the time, I heard this story that Niranjan and Ryan brought to us and fell in love with it. Thankfully, it revolves around a female protagonist.”

Meanwhile, Kiara will be seen next in the upcoming Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s Kabir Singh opposite Shahid Kapoor. She is currently shooting for Vikram Batra biopic titled Sher Shah alongside  Sidharth Malhotra. Besides working with Akshay Kumar in Laxmmi Bomb, she will also be seen in Good News along with Kareena Kapoor Khan and Diljit Dosanjh.
