After winning global acclaim and multiple awards at film festivals, Konkona Sen Sharma's directorial debut A Death In The Gunj will hit the screens in India on 2 June.
The release date just got very crowded as four other films are slated to hit the theatres on the same day, including two big Hollywood movies - Baywatch and Wonder Woman. Sharma's real competition will be in the form of two other small budget Hindi films Behen Hogi Teri (Rajkummar Rao and Shruti Haasan) and Dobara (Huma Qureshi and Saqib Saleem), which will be fighting for screens.
A Death In The Gunj is an atmospheric thriller set in 1979 at McCluskieganj, near Ranchi, a statement said.
It stars Vikrant Massey, Gulshan Devaiah, Kalki Koechlin, Ranvir Shorey, Tillotama Shome, Jim Sarbh, Tanuja and the late Om Puri.
The movie, which earlier this week won the Best Director honour for Konkona at the New York Indian Film Festival, is jointly produced by MacGuffin Pictures and Studioz IDrream.
