After Taare Zameen Par (2007), Stanley Ka Dabba (2011) and Hawaa Hawaai (2014), writer-director Amole Gupte returns with another child-centric film, Sniff!!!, starring an eight-year-old, Khushmeet Gill as Sunny, a young boy with a super sense of smell.

The teaser opens with little Sunny lost in thought in a classroom. An onscreen graphic informs us that apart from his other senses of sight, touch, hearing and taste, his sense of smell is off the charts at 1000%. Later the teaser turns ominous as in a deserted corridor, a classmate asks him, “Can you smell fear? Pain? Can you smell danger?”

Sniff!!! which will follow the story of the spy superhero and his young friends is due to release in the summer of 2017. Surekha Sikri, Sushmita Mukherjee, Manmeet Singh and Putul Guha are also part of the cast. 

Produced by Eros's Trinity Pictures, Sniff!!! will feature music by Mujtaba and Munir Naza, sons of Qawwali singer Aziz Naza.
