Director Madhur Bhandarkar has announced his next movie titled, ‘India Lockdown’. The film, predictably, is based on events that unfolded during the current global pandemic.
Although the cast and the storyline are currently kept secret, reports say Bhandarkar is seeking inspiration from a particular event during the nationwide lockdown, reports Mid Day.
Meanwhile, Bhandarkar’s ‘Indu Sarkar’ (2017) was screened at the sixth Indian Film Festival in Hungary and Bosnia and Herzegovina. He tweeted, “Very Happy that our Critically Acclaimed film INDU SARKAR is showcasing at ‘6th Indian Film Festival’ in Hungary and Bosnia by Embassy of India. Screening dates are 14th & 16th December 2020,”
The director was earlier said to be directing a film based on the mafia, titled ‘Inspector Ghalib.’ Bhandarkar was earlier quoted saying in February 2019, “My journey starting from my first film ‘Chandni Bar’ to my last film ‘Indu Sarkar’ has been really fantastic. Right now, I am working on a film which is titled as ‘Ghalib’. It is based on sand mafias. I have been doing research for this film since last 6-8 months.” However, there has not been any recent update on this.
Additionally, back in late 2018, reports emerged that Bhandarkar had registered ‘Taimur’ as a film title, sparking rumours that a movie on Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan’s son may be in the making. He clarified by saying, “No… it is nothing like that. My production house keeps registering titles, so there are many such titles like ‘Awards’ or ‘Bollywood Vibes,’ so that doesn’t mean that we are making a film right now.”
