The first poster of Abhishek Chaubey’s Sonchiriya was released on Wednesday night (4 July) and it has all guns and glory in it. The film stars Sushant Singh Rajput, Manoj Bajpayee, Bhumi Pednekar, Ranvir Shorey and Ashutosh Rana.
Have you seen it yet?
Sushant features as a dacoit and the film set in the 1970s revolves around the dacoits of Chambal. The poster has “Bairi beimaan, baaghi saavdhan” as its tagline. The release date of the film has been announced too — February 8, 2019.
Before the shooting began, according to a Mid Day report, Sushant spent time with some former dacoits in Chambal to get into the skin of the character. He also lost some muscle weight and also learnt rifle-shooting.
Lead actress Bhumi Pednekar took to her social media handles to share the poster. Her post reads: “Watch us in #SonChiriya releasing on the 8th of February 2019! So proud and excited for this one”
