Another romantic comedy from Netflix? Sign me up!!
If Netflix excels at anything, it’s cheesy rom-coms. The characters are pretty one-dimensional, the setting is stunning, and you know exactly how the movie is going to end and you still watch it anyway. In recent years there has been A Perfect Pairing, Falling Inn Love, and now we have the newest: Wedding Season.
Wedding Season, released on Netflix on August 4 and tells the story of hard-working microfinance worker Asha, who has absolutely no intention of falling in love, despite her parents’ wishes. However, to get her parents off her back and get through the many upcoming weddings, she convinces her single mate Ravi to pose as her boyfriend for the season. She also has to go through her own sister’s wedding.
Wedding Season is set in New Jersey and features a fun and talented cast, and this is exactly where you’ll recognize them from:
Asha is the headstrong main character of Wedding Season who doesn’t want to get married and instead tries to fool everyone by pretending to be in a relationship with Ravi. She is played by Pallavi Sharda, who has been acting since 2010.
Pallavi is best known for her role as Prama in the 2016 film Lion alongside Dev Patel. She also starred in the Netflix series The One and ITV’s Beecham House. Pallavi has also had roles in the movie Tom & Jerry and the television series Retrograde.
Ravi Suraj Sharma
Ravi gets caught up in Asha’s plan to go on a fake date during wedding season after a rather awkward date, and is played by Suraj Sharma.
Suraj is best known for his breakout role as Pi in the 2012 film Life of Pi, for which he earned a BAFTA Rising Star Award nomination. He has since had roles in Homeland, God Friended Me, and most recently the Hulu series How I Met Your Father, where he played the role of Sid.
Priya – Arianna Afsar
Priya is Asha’s younger sister who is planning her wedding to Nick and occasionally tries to talk her sister into common sense, and is played by Arianna Afsar.
Arianna is best known for competing on American Idol in 2009 and was one of the 36 finalists. She has since appeared on stage in Hamilton. She also appeared in an episode of the series Unusual Suspects and My Haunted House.
Nick Sean Kleier
Nick is Priya’s fiancé and is desperately trying to fit in with her family. Sean Kleier plays him. Sean has been acting for almost 10 years with his first acting role coming in 2013 on the series Futurestates.
Sean is best known for his appearances in the movie Ant-Man and The Wasp and the television series Happyish. He has also appeared in episodes of Blue Bloods, Odd Mom Out, and Mr. Right.
Suneeta – Veena Sood
Suneeta is the mother of Asha, who is determined to marry off her daughter and is played by Veena Sood, who has been acting steadily since the 1980s.
Veena is perhaps best known for her roles in The X-Files, Battlestar Galactica, 16 Hudson, Ghost Wars, and most recently, she appeared in an episode of Netflix’s Virgin River.
Vijay is Asha’s father who definitely provides the comedic element of the wedding season and is played by Rizwan Manji.
Rizwan has over 100 acting credits to his name and has been acting since the 1990s. He is perhaps best known for his roles in Schitt’s Creek, Outsourced, Perfect Harmony, Atypical and Peacemaker.
Veena – Sonia Dhillon Tully
Veena is Ravi’s mother, who just like Asha’s parents wants to see her son happy and married, played by Sonia Dhillon Tully.
Sonia is perhaps best known for her roles in Degrassi: The Next Generation, Netflix’s Locke and Key, and Designated Survivor, where she played the British Prime Minister.
Entirely cast in Wedding Season is Manoj Sood, who is the real-life brother of fellow cast member Veena Sood. Manoj plays Ravi’s father, Dinesh.
Manoj has been acting since the late 1990s and has over 60 acting credits to her name. Most recently, he appeared in the Netflix series Snowpiercer, as well as the television series Salvation and Insomnia.
