Ram Gopal Varma productions and Reliance Entertainments’ SHABRI will finally see light of the day as the film is set to release on 26 August 2011.
Starring Eesha Koppikhar, Shabri, written and directed by Lalit Marathe, is a story about how a simple woman from a Mumbai slum ends up threatening the biggest corridors of power in the matka gambling underworld of the city. Writer-director Lalit Marathe says “Most achievements are directly proportionate to the ferocity of hunger and the finality of the pangs. Shabri feels raw hunger. She is driven as much by the passion for vengeance as the terrible desire to live her life her own way. When inspired nothing in the world can stop what must rise. When everything is at stake there is nothing to lose. Shabri is an underdog whose stubbornness to have her way against all odds will touch a chord in all those who dream to soar.”
Reflecting Shabri’s spirit on the eve of the film’s release Lalit Marathe says, “I feel like a dog who will have his Friday!”
The film stars Esha Koppikhar, Raj Arjun, Pradip Rawat and Zakir Hussain.
