Tentatively titled ‘Rourav’, the unconventional thriller sees Ali Fazal, Richa Chadda and Kay Kay Menon in lead roles
Bollywood is set to experience a whiff of fresh air with producer duo Virendra K. Arora and Arjun N. Kapoor adding a Rajasthan-based thriller to their new and exciting film lineup for the year.
The film tentatively titled as ‘Rourav’ will see Kay Kay Menon, Richa Chadha and Ali Fazal in lead roles and will be co-produced by Mahesh Bhupathi (Big Daddy Productions). Richa and Ali were last seen together in Fukrey’s ensemble cast. All the three artistes are known for their originality and unusual appeal among the masses.
This August, the film’s cast and crew will set off for Rajasthan to capture the desert land from a whole new perspective. Indian film-makers have often showcased Rajasthan’s royal and palatial side. Determined to portray Rajasthan from a new lens and bring out its rare, atypical side on to the silver screen, the producers are currently fine-tuning the minute nuances of the film. “This thriller is about a never-seen-before interplay of human emotions. It treads Rajasthan’s uneven terrain and traces its pensive yet powerful side on a deep emotional level. We are pooling in industry’s best possible talent to create something that has never been explored by Indian Cinema,” says Arjun N Kapoor.
This is Virendra K. Arora and Arjun N Kapoor’s second film going floors and an iconic one with a cast as rare as the film’s subject. Pushing their boundaries with every new venture they undertake, the producers have some more avant-garde film work up their sleeve. Set for a Bollywood breakthrough of its kind, the producers have their first film venture and this year’s biggest family entertainer ‘Abhi Nahin Toh Kabhi Nahin’ hit the shooting floors in the last week of May.
“It’s an action-packed year for us. With this exciting Rajasthan-based thriller, we plan to portray some extraordinary cinematic moments and leave a memorable mark on every film lover’s heart,” adds Virendra K. Arora.
