Writer - Director Lalit Marathe says, "Most achievements are directly proportionate to the ferocity of hunger and the finality of the pangs. SHABRI feels raw hunger. She is driven as much by the passion for vengeance as the terrible desire to live her life her own way. When inspired nothing in the world can stop what must rise. When everything is at stake there is nothing to lose. SHABRI is an underdog whose stubbornness to have her way against all odds will touch a chord in all those who dream to soar."
Reflecting SHABRI's spirit on the eve of the film's release Lalit Marathe says, "I feel like a dog who will have his Friday!"
SHABRI is presented by Reliance Entertainment and produced by Ram Gopal Varma. The film has been written and directed both by Lalit Marathe and has been shot mostly in Mumbai slums. The DOP of SHABRI is Amit Roy who also shot DUM MAARO DUM recently.
