Sushant Singh Rajput and Shraddha Kapoor will be sharing screen space for the first time with “Chhichhore” and we can’t wait to see the two spill the magic, together! Shraddha and Sushant will be seen together in the film Chhichhore. The makers have the makers dropped a video (which is a behind-the-scenes video from the set of Chhichhore) online to reminds us that the film is just three months away from release.
Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to the micro-blogging site to share the ‘poster shoot’ video and wrote, “Poster shoot… #Chhichhore arrives in exactly three months: 30 Aug 2019… Stars Sushant Singh Rajput and Shraddha Kapoor… Directed by Nitesh Tiwari. #3MonthsToChhichhore”
Slated to release in August 2019, Chhichhore is being helmed by Nitesh Tiwari, who is best known for his directorial venture Aamir Khan’s Dangal, which to this day remains the biggest box-office juggernaut in Bollywood. Nitesh Tiwari has also directed the Amitabh Bachchan starrer Bhoothnath Returns.
Shraddha Kapoor had two back-to-back films release on the big screens in 2018. While Stree, which released on August 31, turned out to be an unexpected blockbuster, making over Rs 125 crore at the domestic box-office, her second film Batti Gul Meter Chalu, which also starred Shahid Kapoor and Yami Gautam, didn’t fare well with critics or at the box-office.
Sushant Singh Rajput was seen last in 2018 in Kedarnath with debutant Sara Ali Khan daughter of Saif Ali Khan and the two were rumoured to be falling in love during the shoot of the film. Kedarnath did well on the box office giving the right launch pad to Sara Ali Khan. However, Sushant Singh Rajput’s Son Chiriya released in March 2019 didn’t take off on box office as the movie clashed with Luka Chuppi.
Sushant Singh Rajput is working on around 8-10 projects and seems like the actor has his hands full at this point. Stay tuned for more updates.
Amitabh Bachchan proved yet again that why is he called Bollywood’s Big B. The megastar, 76, delivered a 14-minute long take in one shot for “Chehre”, leaving the crew in awe of his talent. The film’s producer Anand Pandit lauded his friend Amitabh for it.
Anand Pandit said, “I believe I am blessed to be a part of a film that has this historic scene. Giving a fourteen minute shot is not only difficult but requires dedication of a different kind. And add to it the way Amitji delivered it with finesse. There was pin drop silence on the sets followed by thunderous applause. He is legendary and an inspiration for each one of us,”.
“Chehre” is a mystery thriller with Amitabh and Emraan Hashmi in lead roles. The film is directed by Rumi Jaffrey and produced by Anand Pandit Motion Pictures and Saraswati Entertainment Private Limited. Big B’s feat for the film was also praised by sound artiste Resul Pookutty.
On June 16, he had tweeted: “Today Amitabh Bachchan marked another history in Indian cinema. Last day, last shot of first schedule of ‘Chehre’… he performed a fourteen minute long submission in one shot and the whole crew stood up and clapped! Dear Sir, undoubtedly you are one of the best in the world.”
To that, Big B said: “Resul .. you give me far too much credit than I deserve or am capable of.”
Actress Kriti Sanon has signed her next project — Rahul Dholakia’s yet untitled thriller. The film, being produced by Sunir Kheterpal of Azure Entertainment, is slated to go on the floors in August, and will be shot in a start-to-finish single schedule. It is expected to release in 2020.
“I have been waiting for the right female-driven thriller to come my way and this film ticked all the boxes and has all the elements of a commercial film,” Kriti said in a statement. “It’s an entertainer that has a powerful core idea and will connect with the audiences without being preachy about the subject. I play a media professional for which the research has already started and I am looking forward to beginning this journey in August,” she added.
Talking about the project, Dholakia said: “Azure pitched this idea to me which was being developed and all of us realised that there was an exciting, real-time thriller format that this story lends itself to. This is a cracker of a script and Kriti is the ideal choice for the protagonist.”
Kheterpal added: “It is a delight to package this subject with Rahul and Kriti. We will start shooting in August and the film will be readied for release in first half of 2020. The film is in pre-production with Rahul, Kriti and the team doing a week long workshop in end July before embarking on a start to finish schedule in August.”
Kriti Sanon will also be seen in many other films such as Arjun Patiala with Diljit Dosanj, Housefull 4 with Akshay Kumar and Ashutosh Gowarikar’s Panipat. Rahul Dholkia last helmed Raees staring Shah Rukh Khan. The film is being written by author Bilal Siddiqi.
