The movie was directed by Montreal’s acclaimed Jean-Francois Pouliot (La Grande Seduction) and stars Toronto’s Vinay Virmani (Breakaway), Kunal Nayyar (Big Bang Theory), Adrianne Palicki (GI JOE, NBC’s Friday Night Lights), Lillete Dubey (Monsoon Wedding), Mircea Monroe (Change Up), Rizwan Manji (Outsourced), Chris Diamantopoulos (The Three Stooges) and newcomer Isabelle.
In Brampton, Ontario, Bollywood superstar Salman Khan hopped on to the stage at SilverCity Brampton for the music launch of Dr. Cabbie. Khan was undoubtedly the star attraction at the music launch, but the crowd was equally enthusiastic towards Lily Singh (who sometimes goes by the name “Superwoman”). Singh, a YouTube sensation plays a small role in Dr. Cabbie.
Brampton’s Manj Musik and Raghav, a well-known artist from U.K. kept the crowd on its feet. Manj and his wife Nindy Kaur performed half-a-dozen songs that combined the sensibilities of bhangra with hip-hop and reggae.
“I watched the film (Dr. Cabbie) last night and it’s an out-and out comedy,” said superstar Salman Khan. “Vinay Virmani (the lead actor) is great actor. He should come to Mumbai. I urge you all to watch the movie.”
