While their first-time collaboration, Mukkabaaz which garnered rave reviews continues to impress the cinegoers in its second week, Aanand L Rai and Anurag Kashyap have decided to take their association to the next level by joining hands once again for their next venture, Manmarziyaan.
Manmarziyan starring Abhishek Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal is all set to go on floors in February. Anurag wanted to finish Mukkabaaz before prepping for this Film and is all geared to shoot the film in Punjab in the fading winters. The film is said to be a project close to Rai’s heart who has ambitious plans around it’s making with special mention to the music which will see the exciting combination of Anurag Kashyap and Amit Trivedi once again.
Aanand L Rai says, “Mukkabaaz has been a great and fruitful journey and now we are very excited for Manmarziyaan which is a complex and beautiful love story, with very relatable human emotions. I am happy that the pieces fit for the perfect cast to come together. Anurag has great energies and I’m very confident with him as the captain of this ship.’
Anurag Kashyap adds, “I have enjoyed working with Aanand L Rai immensely. He is a director’s delight since he gives you all the creative liberty and I’m looking forward to collaborate with the master storyteller again with Manmarziyaan.”
Presented by Eros International & Aanand L Rai and produced by Colour Yellow Productions in association with Phantom Films, Manmarziyaan directed by Anurag Kashyap is set to release later this year.
