Vishal Bhardwaj's 'Pataaka' is about two warring sisters

Published On : 26 Jun 2018

Mumbai,(PTI) Vishal Bhardwaj is back with his next directorial venture, "Pataaka", a Rajasthan-set drama about two warring sisters.

The comedy drama, starring "Dangal" star Sanya Malhotra, TV actor Radhika Madan and comedian Sunil Grover in the lead roles, will release on September 28. Vijay Raaz also stars in the film.

The film revolves around two sisters, Badki and Chhutki, who grow up in a small village in Rajasthan and are constantly at war. But when marriage separates them, they realise they can't seem to live with or without each other.

"The first half is complete, we have just 12 days of shoot left and leave for Mount Abu on June 29 for the final schedule," Bhardwaj said in a statement.

The director, whose films "Haider" and "Talvar" released on October 2, said they decided on September 28 as the week has been lucky for him.

The film is produced by Ajay Kapoor, who wanted to collaborate with Bhardwaj for a long time.

"He's a big brand and I love his cinema. And when I heard the script from him, I fell in love with it. This is different genre," Kapoor said.

Bhardwaj, who is known for his interpretation of Shakespeare's tragedies -- "Maqbool", "Omkara" and "Haider" and Ruskin Bond's stories for "Blue Umbrella" and "7 Khoon Maaf", has adapted renowned writer Charan Singh Pathik's short story for "Pataakha".
