With his two forthcoming films still in production, Vikramaditya Motwane has already begun gearing up for his forthcoming venture ‘Trapped’, which stars Rajkummar Rao in the lead. The filmmaker recently caught up with the media and talked about how the project came up.

“Amit Joshi (writer) had emailed me an idea. I asked if he had a screenplay. He didn’t respond for two months, then, one day, the screenplay landed in my inbox. There was no director in place and being a greedy filmmaker I took it up,” Mumbai Mirror reported Motwane expressing.

Motwane’s ‘AK vs SK’ had been in production for a while, where the film had got delayed. It was during this time that Rao became involved in the project, as the filmmaker went on to express, “AK vs SK didn’t work out and one day, Raj called to enquire about Trapped. I asked him if he had dates free the next month, he did and I immediately asked my assistants to scout for locations in Mumbai.”

‘Trapped’ is a film about Rao’s character who gets locked inside his Mumbai apartment for three weeks, where he eventually runs out of food and water. To get into character and look the part, the actor went on a strict diet of just coffee and vegetables. ” I felt bad for him, but as a filmmaker I was happy he was putting so much effort into my film,” Motwane expressed.

‘Trapped’ has been reported to release on 17th March.
