SONCHIRIYA - Bodyguards to protect dacoits from dacoits
SONCHIRIYA promises to be a power packed action film giving a glimpse of the glorious years of dacoits in central India. Shot in the valleys of Madhya Pradesh, SONCHIRIYA presents an ensemble cast with an intriguing storyline. The story of SONCHIRIYA is set in the 1970s showcasing a small town ruled and dominated by dacoits. Multiple gangs fight over the struggle to attain power. The cast dons fierce avatars in sync with the theme of the film.
The surprise here is that our ‘Dacoits’ from Bollywood had a fear about the real dacoits from Chambal. It seems the real dacoits are still active in some parts of the Chambal, where most part of the film has been shot. So, a huge group of bodyguards were appointed to protect the cast & crew from the real dacoits. Reportedly, the bodyguards used to take all the cast & crew safely from their vanity to the set safely, because of which the whole shooting process could progress peacefully.
Team SONCHIRIYA had a major concern about protecting the whole cast along with a big crew because of which SONCHIRIYA team arranged a huge team of bodyguards, which counts more than the whole ensemble cast.
Starring Sushant Singh Rajput, Bhumi Pednekar, Manoj Bajpayee, Ranvir Shorey, and Ashutosh Rana in lead roles; SONCHIRIYA presents tale set in the era of dacoits.
Directed by Abhishek Chaubey who has earlier presented UDTA PUNJAB and ISHIQIYA, SONCHIRIYA presents a rooted tale set in Chambal. Produced by Ronnie Screwvala's RSVP, The movie is slated to release on 1st March 2019.
