Indian actor Vicki Kaushal, who has proved his mettle in serious dramas/thrillers such as “Masaan” and “Raman Raghav 2.0,” shows his lighter side in his latest film, “Love Per Square Foot,” a quirky romantic comedy that became available globally exclusively on Netflix Feb. 14.

Produced by Bollywood veteran Ronnie Screwvala’s new production company RSVP, “Love Per Square Foot” chronicles bank employees Sanjay (Kaushal) and Karina (Angira Dhar) who enter a marriage of convenience to buy a flat in Mumbai, the city of their dreams.

“Love Per Square Foot” is the feature directorial debut of film and stage personality, Anand Tiwari.

Critically acclaimed actors Ratna Pathak, Supriya Pathak and Raghuvir Yadav feature in prominent roles in the film.

The film is the first mainstream production from India to be exclusively available to more than 109 million Netflix members in 190 countries simultaneously. With this release, RSVP is the first Indian production company to pioneer the distribution of a key title exclusively via streaming, enabling a global audience of entertainment enthusiasts on Netflix to enjoy the movie on the day of its launch.

“Love Per Square Foot” is the first of the internet entertainment service’s six original Indian productions.

“We’re always looking for stories that bring joy to Netflix members, and ‘Love Per Square Foot’ is a gem that we’re proud to have on the service,” Reed Hastings, founder and CEO of Netflix, said in a statement.

As of now, Kaushal is busy with “Raazi,” in which he is paired with Alia Bhatt. He is also expected to headline Screwvala’s “Uri,” a film based on India’s surgical strike on terrorist hubs in Pakistan.
