Sony Pictures Films India and Ellipsis Entertainment have announced a major collaboration together.
The film titled ‘Looop Lapeta’, will be the official adaptation of ‘Run Lola Run’, starring Taapsee Pannu and Tahir Raj Bhasin.
The BAFTA-nominated Tom Tykwer- directed original, produced by X-Filme Creative Pool, was
dubbed a “roller-coaster ride”, as two star-crossed lovers find themselves left with a few
minutes to change their lives forever.
In continuation of Ellipsis’ impeccable track record of introducing top-notch advertising
directors to cinema (Ram Madhvani, Suresh Triveni), avant-garde ad-film maker, Aakash Bhatia
will make his directorial debut with ‘Looop Lapeta’. Ellipsis is credited for acclaimed features like
‘Neerja’, ‘Tumhari Sulu’ and Why Cheat India and for dabbling with daring, unconventional and
new-age subjects and casting.
After the success of ‘Padman’ and ‘102 Not Out’, Sony Pictures Films India has announced a big
slate for 2020 with ‘Shakuntala Devi’, ‘Nikamma’, ‘Helmet’, ‘Major’, and now ‘Looop Lapeta’, which is
in sync with the studio’s vision of investing in ‘content based’ and new age cinema.
Said Vivek Krishnani, Managing Director, Sony Pictures Entertainment India, “Looop Lapeta is a
shining addition to our slate of clutter-breaking and compelling motion pictures. We love the
amazing cast which has come on board to breathe life into this cutting-edge script. It will always
be the studio’s constant endeavor to work with new directors and actors, and Aakash Bhatia is
one amazing find for the studio. We are also looking forward to our first collaboration with
Ellipsis, which has, in no time, emerged as a company that finds, develops and creates
challenging yet entertaining films that speaks to today’s new-age audiences.”
Said Tanuj Garg and Atul Kasbekar, Managing Partners, Ellipsis Entertainment, “We are
emotional about this film, as it was the first to get green-lit at Ellipsis after our company was
formed. When Aayush Maheshwari approached us with the rights, we agreed immediately and
invested the better part of three years in working on various versions and drafts to adapt the
German film to suit an Indian context. Finally, after working closely with our writers Vinay
Chhawal and Ketan Pedgaonkar, what we have in our midst, is absolute gold. We are excited
about our first collaboration with Sony Pictures Films India, whose incredible marketing and
distribution muscle will add tremendous value to this fun, edge-of-the-seat, thriller-comedy!”
‘Looop Lapeta’ will be produced by Sony Pictures Films India, Ellipsis Entertainment and
The principal photography will commence in April 2020 and the worldwide release is on 29th January 2021.
