Tom Cast in New Amit Gupta Film

It was just announced that Tom has been cast in a new film called Jadoo, written and directed by Amit Gupta!!!  The film, which takes place in Gupta's home town of Leicester, starts shooting next week. The film's website, which features a wonderful production blog, says this about the film:

"Jadoo is the story of two brothers, both great chefs, who fall out so badly that they rip the family recipe book in half, one taking the starters and the other the main courses, and set up rival restaurants across the road from each other. Twenty years later, it takes a daughter to reunite them when she's determined to persuade them to cook her wedding banquet together"

According to the blog, Tom will play the fiance of the lead character, Shalini.

In addition to the website, you can also follow the movie's journey from production to release on their Twitter account and their Facebook page!
