Tusshar has described “Maarrich” as an “edgy and intriguing dark thriller with elements of mystery, suspense and unpredictability, that set it apart”.
“The more work experience you gain, the more confident you are about exploring different avenues, both, as an actor and otherwise, too. Therefore, I feel fortunate enough to have chanced upon ‘Maarrich’, which I consciously chose to act in and produce as well,” added the actor, who will be essaying the role of Rajiv, a sharp-witted police officer who lands up with a double murder case.
Kapoor, who ventured into film production with Akshay Kumar-starrer “Laxmii”, is also producing “Maarrich”. Described as a whodunit, the movie is being directed by Dhruv Lather, who previously made 2016 film “Kal Hamara Hai”.
