The story of the film, Man to Man, revolves around actor Naveen Kasturia's character falling in love and marrying Adah's character and later realising that she was biologically a man and became a woman after going through a sex reassignment surgery.
"I try to pick different characters from my debut 1920 to Commando 2 and Commando 3. This is the first time I'm playing a guy," Adah said in a statement.
Naveen said it's the right combination of entertainment and a social message. "This film is a very different and an interesting take on the burning issue of gender acceptance."
It has been written and directed by Abir Sengupta.
Sengupta said: "Working with Adah and Naveen has been a phenomenal experience. I am sure that the audience will not just get entertained but will also take back the message that I am trying to convey through the film."
Jay Sahni, owner of Vivid Arthouse, has joined hands with Sengupta and Anushree Mehta of Anushree Abir Entertainment to produce the film.
