Popular Television actress Ragini Khanna of “Sasural Genda Phool” who had earlier made her Bollywood debut in “Teen Thay Bhai” and has done a Punjabi film “Bhaji In Problem” will star in casting director Mukesh Chhabra’s first production “Gurgaon”, along with Akshay Oberoi who was last seen in “Pizza 3D”.
Anurag Kashyap launched today the poster of Gurgaon, a noir thriller slated for a pan India release on 4th August 2017. The film is produced by JAR Pictures, the makers of award winning and internationally acclaimed films, Liar’s Dice, Killa and Nil Battey Sannata.
The directorial debut of National award-winning cinematographer, Shanker Raman “Gurgaon” is another entry into the school of designer genre films from India that first drew festival attention through Anurag Kashyap’s prolific output.
Anurag Kashyap launches the poster of Gurgaon. On being a part of this launch event, he said, “I saw Gurgaon last year and for me it is genuinely one of the best suspense thrillers, I’ve seen in the longest time and it’s in my list of best movies. The amount of tension the movie builds, it’s not only engaging but it also has some incredible performances. It’s worth watching.”
The film is produced by Ajay G. Rai and Alan McAlex of JAR Pictures along with Madhukar R. Musle of M.R. Filmworks, Nisha N. Sujan of Hashtag Film Studios and Abbas Ali Rattansi.
Talking about his directorial debut which he also co-wrote Shanker Raman, says, “This film has been built and supported by incredible talent. The fact that it is ready for a nationwide release is evidence that anything is possible when we love and support each other. Come celebrate their work and be a part of it.”
Ragini Khanna on being cast for this role says, “When I read the script, I was very excited that the director saw me as an actor and not just as a bubbly girl out of a TV show. To get an opportunity which is so creative, is very evolving for an actor. It was liberating for me, as I explored a lot of untapped emotional areas and it was a journey of self-discovery. Shanker was very generous, so it was an enriching experience working on Gurgaon.”
Akshay Oberoi shares his wonderful experience and says, “I am really excited to be a part of this interesting project. It has been such a pleasure working with Shanker, Ajay and the entire cast. The story is about a strained relationship between a father and a son, set in the fastest growing city in India, Gurgaon”
The film is all set to release on 4th August.
