Pratik Gandhi returns as the lead in Bhushan Kumar, Shaailesh R Singh, and Hansal Mehta’s next untitled film, following his strong performance in Scam 1992 last year. Khushali Kumar, who gained fame for her music videos and has completed filming her debut film, a psychological thriller starring R Madhavan and Aparshakti Khurana, joins him. Pulkit, the director of the Rajkummar Rao-starrer series Bose: Dead or Alive, will helm this family drama set in a small village in Uttar Pradesh.
Khushali Kumar and Pratik Gandhi, who are working together for the first time, have already begun their look testing and preparations in Mumbai. The story of a dignified battle of an ordinary man to win what is his is told in this family drama, which stars Pratik in the lead role and Khushali opposite him.
While this is the actors’ first collaboration, Bhushan Kumar and Shaailesh R Singh will reunite after working together on Hansal Mehta’s Kangana Ranaut starrer Simran and Sunny Kaushal and Nushrratt Bharuccha’s next release Hurdang.
Talking about the film, producer 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.”
