Mumbai -Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap on Wednesday launched the poster of “Gurgaon”, a noir thriller, which is slated to hit the screens on August 4.
Inspired by true events, “Gurgaon”, starring Akshay Oberoi, Ragini Khanna and Pankaj Tripathi, is the directorial debut of National Award winning cinematographer Shanker Raman.
Kashyap said in a statement: “I saw ‘Gurgaon’ last year and for me, it is genuinely one of the best suspense thrillers I’ve seen in the longest time and it’s in my list of best movies. The amount of tension the movie builds, it’s not only engaging but it also has some incredible performances. It’s worth watching.”
The film tells the story of Kehri Singh, a real estate baron, who runs his business Preet Real Estate in his daughter’s name. She is his lucky charm.
Kehri Singh’s oldest son Nikki Singh is often sidelined by his father as a good for nothing, who only brings bad luck. Driven by his need to pay off a large debt to a local bookie, Nikki Singh sets off a chilling chain of events, that force his cold-blooded father to confront his buried past.
Ajay G. Rai, the producer of “Gurgaon” and co-founder of JAR Pictures along with Alan McAlex, said: “’Gurgaon’ is a noir thriller and a very special film for JAR Pictures. This is our fourth film to release after ‘Liar’s Dice’, ‘Killa’, ‘Nil Battey Sannata’ and the first film that we are releasing ourselves. We are really looking forward to the response.”
Director Shanker said: “This film has been built and supported by incredible talent. The fact that it is ready for a nationwide release is evidence that anything is possible when we love and support each other. Come celebrate their work and be a part of it.”
