Some time back, it was announced that a web show, ‘Ajmer Files’, will be made by Tips Films Ltd. Abhishek Dudhaiya, of ‘Bhuj: The Pride Of India’ (2021) fame, was announced as the director of the series. Yesterday, the makers announced that ‘Ajmer Files’ will now be made as a film. Without a doubt, the tremendous success of recent releases ‘The Kashmir Files’ (2022) and ‘The Kerala Story’ (2023) at the box office pushed the makers to reconsider their decision and choose for a theatrical release rather than releasing it on OTT as a web show.
This fictionalized film is a dramatization of the 1992 Ajmer rape and blackmail scandal worried the entire country.
“From a strategic point of view, this is an amazing opportunity for us since the audiences are hungry to experience films in theatres as it provides an opportunity to move beyond the doors of the office and home,” said Kumar Taurani, MD and Chairman of Tips Industries Limited. He added, “We are pleased to be working with Abhishek Dudhaiya to co-produce the movie. The plot has been meticulously designed to reflect actual occurrences.”
Abhishek Dudhaiya said, “This is our first co-production with Tips Films. We’re happy and excited to work on ‘Ajmer Files’. The scripting is almost complete, and the story is touching to the core. Now that this is being made for the big screen, I have no doubts that it will captivate the audience.”
