The makers of Badlapur (2015), Stree (2018) and Mimi (2021), Maddock Films themed producer Dinesh Vijan, are all set to bring a power-packed story to the silver screen. Titled Pooja Meri Jaan, it marks the first collaboration of actors Huma Qureshi and Mrunal Thakur together. Earlier today, the makers of the film revealed that the unit had already wrapped up shooting the movie with a teaser video, which sparked public curiosity.
In the video full of erotic intrigue, we see a “not so innocent” proposal dedicated to the titular character, Pooja, in which a fan gives her a choice to either say yes, or see him turn into a date. The post reads, “Dear Pooja, agar tom han pol do tuh humara pyar ethaas pan jayeja ur agar tomen na bula tuh main ithas pan gaunga!” What Pooja does next makes up the rest of the story.

Through social media, Thakur shared the video and wrote, “Announcement alert it’s a wrap on #PoojaMeriJaan! A very important movie and very close to my heart, I hope you guys love it as much as we loved making it.”
Qureshi, who will celebrate her birthday on July 28, wrote that the announcement made the week of her birthday even more special. She posted, “Andddd’s birthday week just got better 😉 #PoojaMeriJaan! It’s a movie cover!!! I’ve been shooting for this guy all this time… and I was so excited!! This is a very important movie and I’m so proud to be associated with it. I can’t wait Until you see it!”
The film also features Vikram Singh Chauhan and Vijay Raz, who will be offered lead roles. Pooja Meri Jaan is directed by Navjot Gulati, co-directed by Vipasha Arvind and written by Kanishka and Navjot Gulati.
With female-led films dominating the roost, it will be interesting to see what the Qureshi and Thakur duo bring to the table. Apart from Pooja Meri Jaan, Qureshi also owns another female-oriented film called Double XL in Kitty, co-starring Sonakshi Sinha. Among her upcoming collections are Monica O’Mae Darling and Tarla Dalal. On the other hand, Thakur is waiting for the release of her first Telugu film, Sita Ramam, which co-stars with Dulker Salman and Rashmika Mandana. She will also appear playing the central role in films like Pippa, Gumraah and Aankh Micholi.
