The star cast of the movie includes Vidya and Veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan and actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui in pivotal roles. The upcoming movie Te3n is marked as a reunion of Vidya with Sujoy and Nawazuddin, because three of them was earlier working together in the 2012 thriller Kahaani.

The 37 years old actress said- it is the same team, which has come together to make “Te3n”, the film will be different. It is not ‘Kahaani’. The story is different. I am playing a cop, it’s a special appearance. I was excited because it’s a fabulous script… it’s a chance to shoot again in Kolkata, with Bachchan sahab, Nawazuddin and Sujoy.I am shooting in Kolkata and most of the people in the team are the same who worked in ‘Kahaani’. I am enjoying it. Working with Sujoy is always fun.
When asked if the city is lucky for her then she said- “That I don’t know… If the film is good it will become lucky anyway. We are just doing our work and enjoying it.”
Just like Kahaani, Te3n is also being shot in the West Bengal capital.
