Sushant Singh Rajput is having some fabulous projects in his kitty. His work has left many filmmakers impressed. So the next project which he’ll start to work on is Abhishek Chaubey’s film that revolves around Chambal dacoits. And this is the first time Sushant will be working for a film that’ll be directed by the ‘Udta Punjab’ director. Not just that, Bhumi Pednekar is paired opposite the handsome hunk and with that we’ll get to see another refreshing pair on the silver screens.

On May 12 leading tabloid Mirror had reported after ‘Udta Punjab’, Abhishek Chaubey will do another intense film that revolves around Chambal dacoits. This film would be set in 1970s era. At that time it was announced that Sushant Singh Rajput will be roped in to play the male lead. And the latest update is Ronnie Screwvala will be producing the film. Sushant’s debut film ‘Kai Po Che!’ was also produced by Ronnie.

Talking about the upcoming movie which is yet to be titled a source close to the development informed Mirror, “Like Sushant, Bhumi too plays a dacoit. She plays his love interest and gave the nod a month ago. The film will be shot in the Chambal ravines and will roll early next year. Abhishek and his team has already begun scouting for locations.” Sudip Sharma who has co-written this intense film said, “Some of them have more than 80 murder charges on them. Everyone has heard horror stories about the dacoits of Chambal but I’ve realised the reality is quite different from what Hindi films portray. We aim to capture that reality.”

In the past Abhishek Chaubey has directed some intense films like ‘Ishqiya’, ‘Dedh Ishqiya’ and ‘Udta Punjab’. And with that the expectations are definitely high with the upcoming one.
