National Award-winning filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar has put together a bunch of talented cast including names like Prateik Babbar, Sai Tamhankar, Shweta Basu Prasad, Prakash Belawadi, Aahana Kumra, Zarin Shihab and Ayeesha Aimen for his new film INDIA LOCKDOWN, which he announced towards the end of 2020.
Madhur is looking forward to working with this melange of actors who have made their own name in the world of entertainment, with their unique choice of content and their acting acuity. If the buzz is to be believed, the filmmaker is also set to try out a storytelling format that is different from his usual style.
As a filmmaker who is known to take leaves out of reality for his cinema, Bhandarkar has been intrigued by the universal impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on people, irrespective of strata and demographics. Through INDIA LOCKDOWN, he is all set to explore the various aspects of this fascinating subject.
India Lockdown as the name suggests is set around the first two months of the lockdown (March-April 2020). The story revolves around how the lockdown affected people from different strata in society.
All the actors part of the film will be seen doing characters they haven’t done before and that made it exciting for me as a filmmaker to team up with them. All of them Prateik Babbar, Sai Tamhankar, Shweta Basu Prasad, Ahana Kumra, Prakash Belawadi and Zarin Shihab are talented actors and suited the characters perfectly.
India Lockdown inspired by true events is produced by Bhandarkar Entertainment and P J Motion pictures and will go on floors next week.
