After making a powerful impact with his performance in ‘Scam 1992’ (2020), Pratik Gandhi is back in Bhushan Kumar, Shaailesh R Singh and Hansal Mehta’s next yet-to-be-titled film. Joining him Khushali Kumar, who has recently finished shooting her debut film, a psychological thriller, with R Madhavan and Aparshakti Khurana.
Set in a small town of Uttar Pradesh, this family drama will be directed by Pulkit, who was the director of Rajkummar Rao starrer ‘Bose: Dead or Alive’ (2017).
Featuring for the first time together, Khushali Kumar and Pratik Gandhi have already started with their look tests and prep in Mumbai recently. This family drama, with Pratik in the lead role and Khushali opposite of him, is the story of a dignified struggle of a common man to win what is his.
While the film marks the actors’ first collaboration together, Bhushan Kumar and Shaailesh R Singh will come together again after working on Kangana Ranaut starrer ‘Simran’ (2017), which was directed by Hansal Mehta.
Talking about the film, T-Series’ Bhushan Kumar says, “The story of this film is simple yet very real. This is the film that millions of people of our country will resonate with. I am glad Shaailesh, Hansal Mehta and I are again collaborating on such an interesting subject.”
Shaailesh R Singh, who jointly produces this film, says, “The story of this film sheds light on issues faced by several Indians. Our audiences will connect with this film in many ways. I am glad to be bringing this story on screen with Bhushanji and Hansalji who love telling stories that leave an impact on their audiences.”
Director Pulkit concludes, “This film comes to me from a personal space and is very close to me. It is the story of a dignified struggle of a common man to get his land back. The story defines and revolves around a normal middle class family and it deals with the system, power and the abused theory of law.”
A T-Series and Karma Media and Entertainment production, this untitled film produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Shaailesh R Singh and Hansal Mehta will go on floors on 18th August.
