Tennis star Mahesh Bhupathi is set to co-produce his third film, Richa Chadda-Ali Fazal to star in the lead
Ace tennis player Mahesh Bhupathi is all set to roll his third production venture with Richa Chadda and Ali Fazal in lead roles.

The trio has earlier produced 'Chalo Dilli' and 'Abhi Nahin To Kabhi Nahin' — the latter having gone on floors early this month.

A source says, “The film is an fictional revenge thriller that revolves around a couple from Rajasthan. Richa and Ali have been finalised for it and at the moment, they are working on pre-production. The makers are keen on exploring untapped locations of the state and will begin shooting in August.”
Lara Dutta who had co-produced 'Chalo Dilli' along with husband Bhupati, will not be a part of this film. Instead, she will feature in 'Abhi Nahi Toh Kabhi Nahi'.
Adds the source, “Richa and Ali have agreed to do the film. Tentatively titled 'Rorav', it will also have Kay Kay Menon in a pivotal role. At the moment, crew members are scouting for appropriate locations.”
Producer Arjun says, “It an out and out fiction revenge thriller. We have finalised the lead cast and will announce the rest of the cast soon. Ali will be seen in a new look and we are planning to release the film early next year.”
