Keeping fans hooked with their upcoming movie’s intense looking posters, actors Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu finally dropped the trailer of Badla on their social media handles. Unraveling a murder mystery, the movie is helmed by Sujoy Ghosh and slated to hit cinema screens on March 8.
The intriguing trailer shows Amitabh as a suave lawyer, Badal Gupta, who has a record of winning all the cases in the 40 years of his career. On the other hand, Taapsee is found in depths of accusation of murder of her boyfriend, after being found locked in a room with his dead body’s blood on her hands and a cryptic text from him on her phone. With all clues pointing her to be guilty, Amitabh is given the difficult task of defending her while she is vehement in her stand of not being responsible for the crime. The trailer takes us through the vengeful and intense side of Amitabh and Taapsee, in the backdrops of a foreign location, as they try to locate the real culprit, unravel who is following them and secretly clicking their pictures. The trailer ends at a cliffhanger with the visuals of a car speeding straight into a river and drowning in its depths.
Commenting on pairing up with co-star Amitabh again after Pink, Taapsee told PTI, “I am very excited about this film. People wait to work with him and I got to work with him twice in two years. It gives me a lot of excitement and I hope the magic gets repeated. When people say, Bachchan sir and I are a hit pair, it excites me.”
As for Amitabh and Sujoy, the upcoming movie marks a fourth collaboration of the two after movies like Aladin, TE3N and Kahaani, in which Amitabh sang Rabindranath Tagore’s Ekla Chalo Re.
Said to be an official remake of the 2016 Spanish thriller, Contratiempo (The Invisible Guest), rumours are rife that Bollywood heartthrob Shah Rukh Khan will also feature in the film.
