Nawazuddin's Monsoon Shootout to be released in December

The film will hit the screens after a wait of four years. Guneet Monga, the producer, said they were waiting for right time to release the film.


Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui's Monsoon Shootout will be released in December after a four year wait, the producer said.

"For almost a year we were travelling across festivals with the film and then we wanted to wait and release the film when we felt the time was right. We had a successful release of Haraamkhor earlier this year and 2017 has proven to be a year when good content films were being accepted. So we feel now is the best time to release the film," producer Guneet Monga said in a statement.

Monga and her production house Sikhya Entertainment is known for producing content-driven films like Masaan (2015) and Lunchbox (2013), apart from Haraamkhor.

Monsoon Shootout is a crime thriller starring Nawazuddin, Vijay Verma and Tannishtha Chatterjee.

This film is about a policeman facing a life-altering decision whether to shoot or not.

The film is directed by Amit Kumar, who earlier made an award-winning short film called Bypass with Siddiqui and Irrfan Khan.

Siddiqui had shot for Monsoon Shootout immediately after Gangs Of Wasseypur (2012).
