Tadka is an upcoming 2019 Hindi romantic comedy film directed by actor Prakash Raj. The film is a remake of the 2011 Malayalam blockbuster Salt N' Pepper.


The film features the story of Tukaram and Madhura, two strangers in the city that are brought together by the kind of happenstance that makes the magic of fairy tales. As an archaeologist, Tukaram is much more concerned by the warp of weft of stone and entirely unconcerned by the lack of social milestones marking his journey. Madhura is an RJ, a voice that the whole city knows and recognises but with a stranger's face. Set in a world dotted by people who are misfits much like our protagonists, it is finally food that will bind these characters.[1]



Prakash Raj also starred in the Kannada, Tamil and Telugu versions of the film opposite Sneha which also features an original soundtrack by Ilaiyaraja.[2][3] The film stars Nana Patekar, Ali Fazal,[1] Shriya Saran and Tapsee Pannu.[3] The film is based in Goa and it went on floor in May 2016.[1]
