Two more Indian actors have joined the first Indo-Iranian co-production ‘Salaam Mumbai’ which is currently being shot in India.

Poonam Dhillon, 53, and Dalip Tahil, 63, are the popular Indian actors who have recently been added to the movie cast, Mehr News Agency reported.

Starring Mohammad-Reza Golzar, 38, and Dia Mirza, 34, the movie has completed 30% of shooting in the Indian city of Mumbai. Dhillon and Tahil are to play as Mirza’s parents in the film.

The movie is about two medical students from two different parts of the world and explores the tumultuous romantic tale of their relationship.

Mirza who has performed in almost 40 films, said, “As the world shrinks and artists from different countries collaborate to work together, it is a great opportunity for us to learn and take our art to newer platforms and audiences”.

She said it is interesting to play opposite Golzar, and “be exposed to a new audience of 80 million Iranians. It is going to be a confluence of the two countries as well as Indian and Iranian cultures, and that is what got me really excited”.

The movie is directed by Iranian filmmaker Ghorban Mohammadpour and co-produced by his compatriot Javad Norouzbeigi, and Pahlaj Nihalani from India.

Gulshan Grover, Behrouz Chahal, Simran Mishrikoti and Iranian pop singer Benyamin Bahadori are also in the cast.
