Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap launched the poster of a noir thriller movie “Gurgaon” on Wednesday. The report claims that Gurgaon is starring Akshay Oberoi, Ragini Khanna, and Pankaj Tripathi. It is the directorial debut of National Award winning famous cinematographer Shanker Raman.
On the launch of the poster, Anurag Kashyap said:
“I saw Gurgaon last year, and for me, it is genuinely one of the best suspense thrillers I’ve seen in the longest time, and it’s on my list of best movies. The amount of tension the movie builds, it’s not only engaging, but it also has some incredible performances. It’s worth watching.”
The film itself tells the story of Kehri Singh, who is a real estate baron. He named his business in his daughter’s name as Preet Real Estate. Kehri thinks his oldest son Nikki Singh is good for nothing as he only brings bad luck. According to him, his daughter is his lucky charm.
Ajay G. Rai and Alan McAlex are producers of the film along with Madhukar R. Musle of M.R. Filmworks, Nisha N. Sujan of Hashtag Film Studios and Abbas Ali Rattansi.
Rai along with McAlex said:
“Gurgaon is a noir thriller and a very special film for JAR Pictures. This is our fourth film to release after Liar’s Dice, Killa, Nil Battey Sannata and the first film that we are releasing ourselves. We are really looking forward to the audiences’ response.”
Talking about his directorial debut, Shanker said:
“This film has been built and supported by incredible talent. The fact that it is ready for a nationwide release is evidence that anything is possible when we love and support each other. Come celebrate their work and be a part of it.”
“The story is about a strained relationship between a father and a son, set in the fastest growing city in India, Gurgaon”.
Talking about the movie, the lead heroine Ragini Khanna said:
“To get an opportunity which is so creative is very evolving for an actor. It was liberating for me as I explored a lot of untapped emotional areas and it was a journey of self-discovery. Shanker was very generous, so it was an enriching experience working in Gurgaon”.
The movie will hit the screens on August 4.
