Ammy Virk and Sonam Bajwa’s PUAADA, a Punjabi language word meaning “panga”, is going to be the first Punjabi film to hit the cinemas after almost a year now. The mad, desi, comedy, romance for the whole family is all set to release in on 11th March 2021. Puaada was initially slated to release in the summer of June 2020.
The film is presented by A&A Pictures and Brat Films, the two companies that brought the mega-blockbuster SHADAA featuring Diljit Dosanjh and Neeru Bajwa to screens in June 2019. PUAADA is helmed by debutante Rupinder Chahal and jointly produced by Atul Bhalla, Pawan Gill, Anurag Singh, Aman Gill, Balwinder Singh Janjua, and this time the makers have Zee Studios on board as well. Zee Studios have acquired the entire worldwide rights of the film including theatrical, music, digital and satellite and are chalking out big release plans for the same.
Speaking about the film , producer Pawan Gill said in a statment—“The last Punjabi film to hit screens was over a year ago on March 13, 2020 before the lockdown brought not just Punjabi cinema to a standstill but the whole global film industry.But finally there seems to be light at end of the tunnel for the silver screens as we are releasing the film. The upcoming mad comedy romance for the entire family was initially set to release in cinemas in June 2020, coinciding with a summer holiday festive bonanza, but of course that couldn’t happen because of the pandemic.”
