Bhumi Pednekar, who is currently riding on the success of her latest films, Toilet Ek Prem Katha and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan has signed her next, opposite Sushant Singh Rajput. The film will be directed by Abhishek Chaubey and is based on the life of dacoits in the Chambal district.
“Sushant is playing a dacoit. The film will be shot in the Chambal ravines and will roll by the year-end. Prep has begun and the team is excited,” said a source, who also added, “Bhumi begins work on the film in January. Abhishek Chaubey plans to shoot in real locations so he and his team are busy doing the recee right now.”
Sudip Sharma, who has co-written the film said, “Some of them have more than 80 murder charges on them. Everyone has heard horror stories about the dacoits of Chambal but I’ve realised the reality is quite different from what Hindi films portray. We aim to capture that reality.”
One fine film after another, Bhumi Pednekar sure is the talk of the town!
