After Mukkabaaz, Anurag Kashyap is all set to try his hand at another love story with Manmarziyan. The film has an unusual cast of Abhishek Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal. And like Mukkabaaz, this film will also see Kashyap collaborating with Aanand L Rai.
The film will go on floors next month in Punjab.
Speaking to Bombay Times, a daily, about the project, Kashyap said, “I’ve enjoyed working with Aanand, immensely. He is a director’s delight since he gives you complete creative liberty. I’m looking forward to this collaboration with the master storyteller.”
While revealing more about the kind of love story the film will have, Rai added, “Mukkabaaz has been a great and fruitful journey and now, we are excited about Manmarziyan. It’s a complex yet beautiful love story with relatable human emotions. I’m happy that we have the perfect cast for this film. Anurag has great energy and I’m very confident with him being the captain of this ship.”
This is the first time that Bachchan and Pannu will be seen on the big screen together. It will also be their first film with Kashyap. Kaushal has worked with the filmmaker in Raman Raghav 2.0 (2016).
Manmarziyan will be released later this year.
