The much-awaited trailer of 2019 big Diwali release Saand Ki Aankh is out. The film is a refreshing change from the old and constant sports biopics. The trailer shows a glimpse into the extraordinary journey of the world’s oldest sharpshooters known as ‘Shooter Dadis’, Chandro (86) and Prakashi Tomar (82), played by Bhumi Pednekar and Taapsee Pannu respectively.
The trailer has a lot of humorous dialogues. The film is helmed by Tushar Hiranandani and is produced by Anurag Kashyap, Reliance Entertainment and Nidhi Parmar. The ‘Shooter Dadis’ have won multiple championships together.
Today, Bhumi Pednekar took to his official Twitter handle to share the trailer of the film and captioned it, “लटेस्ट है, एकदम ताज़ी ताज़ी !! #SaandKiAankhTrailer (sic).”

The film has created a lot of buzz with its interesting storyline from its first look itself. The first collaboration of Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar touches many issues including internalised patriarchy, gender disparity and the strong will of two old women trying to change the norms of the society. Taapsee and Bhumi have nailed their wrinkled look. Dressed in the traditional Haryanvi attire, the duo play sisters-in-law who realised their hidden talent at an age when others plan retirement.
Apart from Taapsee and bhumi, Saand Ki Aankh also features director Prakash Jha and Mukkabaaz actor Viineet Singh in significant roles. Set in the hinterlands of Uttar Pradesh, the film went on floors in Meerut in February. Originally titled Womaniya, the film was renamed Saand Ki Aankh, following a title rights dispute.
