They sizzled on screen with their love-hate relationship in The Dirty Picture, but they’re planning to tickle your funny bone this time. Emraan Hashmi and Vidya Balan will be seen together in the comic-thriller, Ghanchakkar.
Rajkumar Gupta, who worked with Vidya in No One Killed Jessica, will be directing the film, which will be produced by UTV Motion Pictures. Siddharth Roy Kapur, CEO of UTV Motion Pictures says, “It is a pleasure to announce Ghanchakkar, our third film in a row with Rajkumar Gupta, one of the most talented writer-directors in the industry today. Rajkumar and Pervez Sheikh have written a fabulously quirky comic-thriller that will surprise audiences with its many twists and turns.”
Amit Trivedi will compose the music of the film with Amitabh Bhattacharya writing the lyrics. Ghanchakkar is expected to go on floors in August 2012.
Ghanchakkar Official Plot
Ghanchakkar narrates the story of ex-conman, Sanju (Emraan Hashmi), who is laid back and has a taste for the finer things in life. The problem is – he has an ambitious wife (Vidya Balan) with her own notions of the world and therefore gets sucked into a ‘chakkar’ and has to suffer two thugs in the process – one with a bad ailment and the other with a bad sense of humour. Will Sanju survive the madness?
