After Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, director Ali Abbas Zafar is ready to go on floors with his next YRF project, Gunday. Produced by Aditya Chopra, the film features Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor in lead roles.
Amidst the most turbulent times in the history of Kolkata, then Calcutta, from 1971 to1988, Bikram and Bala rose from being small time wagon breakers and coal thieves to becoming the biggest and most powerful black marketing mafia-men. A rare combination of vigour and wit, the two were inseparable and the city of Calcutta swore by their friendship. As their notoriety became the stuff of legends the People of this sprawling city started calling these two carefree rebels Gunday.
The leading lady, who plays a pivotal role in the film, is still to be cast and will be announced shortly.
This is both Singh and Kapoor’s third film with the banner and the first time that these two powerful performers have come together. The film will go on floors this December.
