Vishal Bhardwaj’s next, ‘Pataakha’, a comedy-drama, with Sanya Malhotra, Radhika Madan and Sunil Grover in the lead, will release on September 28. The film revolves around two sisters, Badki and Chhutki, who grow up in a small village in Rajasthan and are constantly at war. But when marriage separates them, they realise they can’t seem to live with or without each other.
Bhardwaj says, “The first half is complete, we have just 12 days of shoot left and leave for Mount Abu on 29th June for the final schedule.” He further adds that they fixed on 28th September as the week has been lucky for him and both ‘Haider’ (2014) and ‘Talvar’ (2015) had opened in 2nd October week.
Producer Ajay Kapoor says that he has wanted to be associated with Bhardwaj for a long time. “He’s a big brand and I love his cinema. And when I heard the script from him, I fell in love with it. This is different genre,” he adds.
‘Pataakha’ is based on an acclaimed short story by renowned writer Charan Singh Pathik. It is being directed by Bhardwaj and produced by Vishal Bhardwaj Films LLP and Kyta Productions. It stars Sanya Malhotra, Radhika Madan, Sunil Grover and Vijay Raaz.
