Bhumi and Taapsee to hit bull's eye as shooter Daadis
Reliance Entertainment, Tushar Hiranandani and Anurag Kashyap bring to you the movie SAAND KI AANKH. Bhumi Pednekar and Taapsee Pannu’s next SAAND KI AANKH’s first look is released and has gone viral! Bhumi and Taapsee Pannu team up to play the roles of the world’s oldest sharpshooters from India, Chandro and Prakashi Tomar. Bhumi, who has always wowed everyone with her film choices right from her debut DUM LAGA KE HAISHA, looks unrecognizable as Chandro in the first look and this is yet another brilliant choice of role by her.
“These two women by sheer stroke of luck become sharp shooters. They travel the world, they are given incredible recognitions, they make the country proud but no one really knows how they fought their house, the society, to make a difference in the lives of their granddaughters and bring positive change for women in their male-dominated community. It is an extremely powerful story. It is a film about the triumph of human spirit, a film about faith. It’s a true story of courage because you have these women who have changed the ecosystem for women and society around them,” Bhumi says.
A recent social media post reads, “The Shooter Daadis are loaded and ready with their amazing stories from the hinterlands of UP. Presenting the first look poster! #SaandKiAankhThisDiwali”.
In another post Bhumi Pednekar says, “They are brave, they are fun, They are full of love! They are the Shooter Dadis of India Proud to be a part of their journey…”
Bhumi adds, “The shooting has been an incredible experience for me. As an artist, you really hope that you get a film like this in your career and I’m fortunate to have this in my bag. It has been an absolute honour getting to know these incredible women and having the chance to play Chandro on screen. Honestly, it has been a privilege. The journey has been both challenging and creatively fulfilling and that’s what I look forward to from any film that I sign. I was bowled over by the script from the word go because it is such an entertaining yet inspiring film.”
The film is slated to be released 2019 on the occasion of Diwali.
