Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar are all set to ace the roles of the ‘Shooter Dadis’ Chandro and Prakashi Tomar in their upcoming film, Saand Ki Aankh. The first look of the film was shared by Anurag Kashyap who is also producing the film and it shows Taapsee and Bhumi as the old shooters who are aiming straight for the bullseye. The film is helmed by Tushar Hiranandani and will showcase the journey of the oldest shooters in the world.
In the poster, we can see Taapsee and Bhumi dressed as the original ‘shooter dadis.’. They can be seen donning a ghagra with a shirt and can be seen pointing the guns straight at the bullseye. Both Taapsee and Bhumi can be seen as two octogenarians who are all set to take on the world with their guns. Belonging to a small village in Uttar Pradesh in Bagpat district, Taapsee and Bhumi can be seen very well fitting the roles of the older shooting champs.
Producer Anurag Kashyap shared the First look on Twitter and wrote, “Here it is bullseye साँड़ की आँख.” While the entire film has been shot in the village of UP, Taapsee and Bhumi kept sharing photos and videos from their life at the small place. They also spent a lot of time with the Prakashi and Chandro Tomar in their village to understand their lifestyle and imbibe their habits in themselves to ace the role in the film. The film is slated to hit the screens on Diwali 2019.
Meanwhile, the film originally was supposed to be called ‘Womaniya’, but there was some conflict over the title with Pritish Nandy and hence, the makers decided to change the name to Saand Ki Aankh. The film will also star the ace director Prakash Jha in a pivotal role along with Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar.
