VISHAL BHARDWAJ TO DIRECT DANGAL GIRL IN NEXT FILM

After producing and directing Rangoon in Bollywood, Vishal Bhardwaj is back in Hindi Film Industry with his next directorial venture Pataakha. It is a comedy- drama film based on two warring sisters. This movie is set in Rajasthan. Pataakha stars Sanya Malhotra who made her debut in Bollywood with 2016's biggest hit Dangal. Along with Dangal girl, TV actor Radhika Madan (of Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi-fame) and comedian Sunil Grover will be seen sharing the screen space with her. The plot of the story revolves around two sisters named Badki and Chhutki, who grow up together in a small village in Rajasthan. According to the reports on the film's story, the sisters will be seen constantly at war. However, as soon as they get married they realize that they cannot live without each other.

Earlier, Vishal Bhardwaj, who has also directed Haider, had told that they were planning to release Pataakha on Gandhi Jayanti this year. But recently, the filmmaker has advanced the date of release to 28th September, as this week has been lucky for him. This comedy-drama movie is produced by Ajay Kapoor, under Kyta Productions. The banner has helmed Baby, Airlift, Roy, et al earlier. Interestingly, the producer had always wanted to collaborate with the Talvar producer in a project. When asked about working with Bhardwaj, Kapoor said "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 a different genre." The film is set to release on 28th September and will clash with Anushka Sharma and Varun Dhawan-starrer Sui Dhaaga on the box office. Pataakha will also mark Sanya's second outing in 2018 as she has Badhai Ho opposite Ayushmann Khurrana in her kitty as well.
