Dibakar Banerjee's political thriller completes shooting and locks in release date of 26th January, 2012 As befitting the lightning paced nature of the film itself, Dibakar Banerjee's SHANGHAI has been completed in just 42 days. The film which is already buzzed about because of its director and compelling star cast-Abhay Deol, Emraan Hashmi, Kalki Koechlin, Bengal screen legend and National award winner Prosenjit in his long awaited Bollywood debut, Farooq Shaikh, and Supriya Pathak. The film was shot mainly in Latur and Baramati and the release date has been fixed for the 26th of January, i.e. Republic Day of 2012, an apt day for the release of this roller coaster expose of big money politics and how the common man gets his revenge back!


The freezing of the release date also means that Dibakar and his team have less than six months to bring the film to its completed form and then embark on a marketing campaign to build interest in the film among audiences. When asked how the film had shaped up so far Dibakar said, "Frankly I have been stunned by the performances from our stars and our character artistes. I can safely say that all preconceived notions that people have about both Abhay and Emraan are going to be shattered by this movie. Similarly, the performances from the senior actors are also among the best in their already glittering characters. I can't wait to get to the edit table to shape this movie into one that will bring out the best of these performances."

Added Kamal Gianchandani, President, PVR Pictures, "SHANGHAI is one of the most exciting films that PVR Pictures has been associated with. A stellar cast combined with Dibakar's unique story telling ability has turned SHANGHAI into an experience that no one will forget. All of us at PVR Pictures are extremely bullish about SHANGHAI's box office prospects & couldn't imagine a better date than 26th January to release the film worldwide."

A director with a brilliant track record, a fascinating screenplay, a committed producer, and mind blowing performances, it looks like nothing can stop SHANGHAI from grabbing the hearts and minds of Indian audiences come Republic Day 2012.
