Veteran actor Anupam Kher will play the lead role in "Vijay 69", an upcoming slice of life OTT film from YRF Entertainment.

The film will be directed by Akshay Roy, the filmmaker behind Ayushmann Khurrana and Parineeti Chopra's 2017 movie "Meri Pyari Bindu".


"Vijay 69" will narrate the life of a sexagenarian man (Kher) who decides to compete in a triathlon contest at the age of 69, a press release from YRF Entertainment stated.

The film will be produced by filmmaker Maneesh Sharma, known for directing YRF titles like "Band Baaja Baaraat", "Shuddh Desi Romance" and "Fan".

"Vijay 69" is the third project from YRF Entertainment, the newly launched digital arm of production banner Yash Raj Films (YRF).

The company earlier announced two OTT series -- "The Railway Men" and “Mandala Murders".

"The Railway Men" is described as a tribute to the unsung heroes of the 1984 Bhopal gas tragedy. It features R Madhavan, Kay Kay Menon, Divyenndu Sharma and Babil Khan.

"Mandala Murders" will mark the OTT debut for actor Vaani Kapoor. The show, billed as a gritty crime thriller, is being directed by Gopi Puthran of "Mardaani 2" fame.
