Trailer for Gujarati comedy film 'Shu Thayu' sees actor Malhar Thakkar lose his memory

The cast of the popular 2015 Gujarati comedy ‘Chhello Divas’ reunites for Krishnadev Yagnik’s latest film. Find out what the cast and crew have to say about the film, which is set for an August 24 release.


Media personnel chuckled while watching the trailer of new Gujarati comedy film Shu Thayu, starring actors Malhar Thakar and Kinjal Rajpriya, at its launch in an Ahmedabad multiplex on August 1. The film, directed by Krishnadev Yagnik, is set to hit theatres on August 24, 2018. Actors Yash Soni, Mitra Gadhvi and Aarjav Trivedi also star in the film, reminding one of the 2015 comedy Chello Divas.

Shu Thayu is about Manan (Thakar), an ordinary Gujarati guy, who stumbles and falls on a stone while playing cricket, loses his memory and forgets his friends and soon-to-be fiancé Dipali (Rajpriya). The trailer has already garnered hundreds of ‘Thumbs Ups’ and views on YouTube and the visuals and dialogues in the promo clearly set the stage for a riotous comedy.

Experienced filmmaker Yagnik, who has a track record for creating path-breaking movies with Belvedere Films production company, like Days of Tafree, Chhello Divas, and Karsandas Pay and Use, has reemployed the seasoned cast of Chhello Divas (2015) in Shu Thayu to re-create a fun-packed experience for audiences. The film is expected to release in more than 100 theatres across India, including major multiplexes.

Here’s a short byte of the Shu Thayu cast and crew talking to Creative Yatra about their roles and sharing their high-spirited experience of shooting the film:
