The Supreme Court recently stated that adultery isn’t not a crime as it scrapped Section 497 and SC’s verdict has come as a relief for Fraud Saiyaan, Arshad Warsi.
Arshad is playing the lead role in Prakash Jha‘s Fraud Saiyaan, a light-hearted comedy, inspired by a real-life fraudster, who married seven women in seven different cities. Arshad is married to 13 women in the movie and how he deals with his multiple marriages forms the plot of this comedy of errors.
Talking about the film, producer Prakash Jha said, “He has 13 wives and multiple affairs which gets him into scraps with the law. It’s a fun-filled con-caper set in the Varanasi, Mathura, Allahabad belt with Arshad (Warsi) as a guy who very early in life realises that he can make gullible young women fall in love with him and with the promise of marriage, on occasions even taking the pheras with them, can use them to support his lifestyle without the daily grind of a job.”
“Naturally his choice of profession, gets him into a lot of trouble. For instance, if the woman he is pursuing is already married, her aggrieved spouse can turn up on his doorstep with a cop in tow and threaten to have him thrown behind bars. But now, thanks to a recent Supreme Court ruling, he cannot be arrested nor can criminal charges be pressed against him. This ruling has unknowingly come to the rescue of our protagonist though eventually he will have to face the consequences of his actions,” Jha further added.
Presented by Prakash Jha Productions and produced by Disha Prakash Jha and Kanishk Gangwal, ‘Fraud Saiyaan’ is directed by Sourabh Shrivastava, and stars Arshad Warsi, Saurabh Shukla and Sara Loren in pivotal roles. It will hit the screens on January 18.
