Shaurya Singh’s upcoming Hindi feature film ‘Bhanwarey’ recently completed its first schedule in Mumbai. Written and directed by Shaurya Singh who is also acting in it, Bhanwarey is set in the late 90’s in Delhi and revolves around three friends and their struggle of survival in a shoddy apartment. It is also the story of their daily problems and how they accidentally get involved in wrong doings to solve them and eventually get trapped in the hands of law and a couple of gangster groups.
Shaurya Singh who hails from Delhi started his career as a short film maker. Despite acting being his first love, he started creating short films for the film festival circuit across India and also received awards and accolades for his work. Two years ago, Shaurya shifted base to Mumbai after being selected to play a major role of Raja Todarmal in Balaji Telefilms epic saga Jodha Akbar. Widely praised for his acting abilities, Shaurya who has a penchant for writing started scripting this feature film while working in Jodha Akbar. As soon as the arrangements were made Shaurya started working towards his dream of making a feature film with able collaboration from Mohan Das of Eon Films.
Speaking about the film, Shaurya says, “The film is a comedy of errors featuring a series of comic twist, as the three guys embark on a series of misadventures in the old part of Delhi’s Chandni Chowk. With a very strong message for the youth and presented in a light manner with witty and catchy dialogues, the audience can relate with the characters well as the theme of the movie is pretty generic and based on the daily lives in the 90s.”
Comedy is a very tricky genre of film to get right. However, with splendid performances by Shaurya Singh, Karan Thakur and Jashan Singh Kohli, the film will keep the audience in splits with an endless string of gags, but without focusing on the raunchier side of things. Jashan Singh Kohli who has been doing a lot of television and is currently seen in Big Magic’s “Total Nadaniyaan” is playing one of the lead characters. “I heard the storyline and gave an instant approval. I am really happy that I am a part of ‘Bhanwarey’. It is going to be an amazing film with great potential,” he quipped.
“We are by far the silliest, craziest people in this cast because we really don’t have any limit as to what we do,” echoed Karan Thakur with contagious excitement. “Our varied antics will bring the zany Delhite way of life alive,” added Karan who was seen in “Bhagyavidhata”, “Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha” and other serials. He is now doing “Badi Door Se Aaye Hai” on Sony Television.
Under the aegis of Sudha Creations & Eon Films, the shoot of "Bhanwarey" has already commenced in mayanagri Mumbai and first schedule is complete. The second schedule is slated to start in the forthcoming week and will be shot in Mumbai, Delhi and Chandigarh.
