Kriti Sanon to star in Rahul Dholakia's thriller

Kriti Sanon to star in Rahul Dholakia's thriller

New Delhi, Jun 19 (UNI) After the success of ‘Luka Chuppi’, Kriti Sanon is all geared-up to play the protagonist in director Rahul Dholakia's yet untitled thriller.

The movie will be produced by Sunir Kheterpal for Azure Entertainment.

The film, slated to go on floors this August, will be shot in a start to finish single schedule and will be ready for release in early 2020.



Drawing inspirations from real stories through a fictional set-up in Mumbai, the film is taking forward Azure's game-changing endeavors in the thriller genre.

Earlier this year, Sunir produced ‘Badla’ in collaboration with Red Chillies, which was a worldwide blockbuster starring Amitabh Bachchan, Taapsee and Amrita Singh.

Azure has recently produced two back-to-back content driven blockbusters - ‘Badla’ and ‘Kesari’.



The project marks the first collaboration between Azure and Rahul, who last directed Shah Rukh Khan in ‘Raees’.

Rahul is co-producing the film as well.



“Azure pitched this idea to me which was being developed and all of us realized that there was an exciting, real-time thriller format that this story lends itself to. This is a cracker of a script and Kriti is the ideal choice for the protagonist,” shares Rahul.



"It is a delight to package this subject with Rahul and Kriti. We will start shooting in August and the Film will be readied for release in first half of 2020. The Film is in pre-production with Rahul, Kriti and the team doing a week long workshop in end July before embarking on a start to finish schedule in August. The core idea behind this taut thriller has excited all of us,” Sunir said.

It’s a VFX heavy film for which a top VFX Studio is being brought in from South Korea.

The film is being written by author Bilal Siddiqi, whose novel, ‘The Bard of Blood’ is being adapted into a series for Netflix.



Sunir is also producing director Jeethu Joseph's Bollywood debut film starring Emraan Hashmi, Rishi Kapoor and Sobhita Dhulipala and Anurag Kashyap's helmed thriller starring Taapsee Pannu towards end of 2019.

Kriti has three more releases this year including ‘Arjun Patiala’ with Diljit Dosanjh, ‘Housefull 4’ with Akshay Kumar and Ashutosh Gowarikar’s ‘Panipat’ with Arjun Kapoor.
