Filmmaker Anubhav Sinha has announced his next film, a social drama, titled 'Bheed'. The film will be a socio-political drama starring actor Rajkummar Rao in the leading role.
While talking about the film, Anubhav said, “Bheed is one of those titles that the whole team jumps at the moment you propose it.”
This is the first time the filmmaker is working with Rajkummar. On his collaboration with the actor, Anubhav said, "To me, casting was crucial. Raj is a very intriguing actor. He is one of the very few actors who can be so successfully transparent in a story. There always was a keen desire to work with him and I am looking forward to it."
Rajkummar shared his excitement and said, “I am thrilled to be working with Anubhav Sinha. It's a matter of great honour and privilege to collaborate with a filmmaker who has such a distinct voice. This is an important subject and the character needs me to stretch myself as an artist, beyond my comfort zone. I can’t wait to start shooting and lose myself in this universe.”
Bheed marks Anubhav’s reunion with Bhushan Kumar after the success of Thappad. It is jointly produced by Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series and Anubhav's Benaras Mediaworks.
Taking about his relationship with Anubhav, Bhushan shared, “Anubhav and I have a long standing relationship since Tum Bin. And every outing together is even more exciting than the last one. Thappad is a film I am incredibly proud of and I can’t wait for Bheed to kick off. It’s another of Anubhav’s deeply stirring stories and I am so proud to join hands with him yet again on this one.”
The film is expected to go on floors in November, as the unit continues their extensive pre-production for the next few weeks. It will be shot across Lucknow.
