Abhishek Chaubey is back for a new project after a successful campaign with Udta Punjab. The movie revolved around the drug problem in the region of Punjab. His new project, however, will cover the Chambal Dacoits. The filmmakers recently signed with the lead actress in the film, Bhumi Padnekar.
The reports on Time of India said:
“Like Sushant, Bhumi too plays a dacoit. She plays his love interest and gave the nod a month ago. The film will be shot in the Chambal ravines and will roll early next year. Abhishek and his team have already begun scouting for locations.”
Also, The co-writer, Sudip Sharma, said:
“Some of them have more than 80 murder charges on them. Everyone has heard horror stories about the dacoits of Chambal, but I’ve realized the reality is quite different from what Hindi films portray. We aim to capture that reality.”
On the work front, Sushant Singh Rajput is working on his upcoming project, Chanda Mama Door Ke. He just returned for the same from NASA. Other movies in-line for him are Drive and Kedarnath. His last film, Raabta, however, failed to make an impact at the Box Office.
Bhumi Padnekar, on the other hand, is gearing up for her film with Akshay Kumar, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. Also, she is prepping for Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, alongside Ayushmann Khurana. According to the rumors, she might also work with Zoya Akhtar soon.
Looks like the duo has a lot on their plate for now. It will be interesting to see their on-screen chemistry. Stay tuned with UMD for further updates. Also, tell us your opinions in the comment section as well.
