Madhur Bhandarkar is known for making hard hitting real life resembling films . And this kind of production isn’t a cakewalk as the filmmaker doesn’t only put in extensive research into his projects, but he ensures that he chooses issues and stories that need to be told to the society.
Fashion, Page 3 and Heroine are among some of his works that resonated with both the critics and public. Now, adding to his hard-hitting filmography, Madhur recently announced his next titled ‘India Lockdown’, a film that is going to be inspired by true events.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the news by revealing that the casting for India Lockdown is underway and is expected to go on floors from January 2021. “MADHUR BHANDARKAR ANNOUNCES NEXT FILM… IT’S OFFICIAL… #MadhurBhandarkar announces his next directorial venture… Titled #IndiaLockdown… Inspired by true events… Casting underway… Produced by Bhandarkar Entertainment and PJ Motion Pictures… Starts Jan 2021,” read Taran’s tweet, which was soon re-shared by Madhur.
As the name suggests, the film will be based on the lockdown which was imposed in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. We really can’t wait to know more about this exciting project!
Recently, Madhur was in twitter war with Karan Johar for stealing his title for the latter’s Netflix show, The Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives. KJo, however, was quick to issue an apology and tweak his show’s name.
