Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar are hitting the Bull’s Eye as Shooter Daadis in the first look of Saand Ki Aankh.
Yesterday we shared with you Salman’s old man look from Bharat. Now we are here with the females of Bollywood donning the similar old look and proving that saying right, that age is just a number if you have it in you. Today morning, the makers of ‘Saand Ki Aankh’ went public with its first official posters. It has Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar holding guns with an above 60 look. But that is not a hindrance and we promise you that you will be left a lot impressed for sure.
Both female performers have a proven performance track record when it comes to roles with intensity and quality content. They are portraying the role of world’s oldest sharpshooters: Chandro and Prakashi Tomar, the two octogenarian sharpshooters hailing from Uttar Pradesh’s Johri village that falls in Baghpat district. Tapsee shared the first look posters and wrote,
“They challenged their age, fought their way and shot to fame in the shooting game. First Look Out Now. #SaandKiAankhThisDiwali.”
While the film was under final production stages, it had a couple of issues of its own to deal with. These issues aroused because of the film’s title rights being held by Pritish Nandy, whose demand was an exorbitant 1 Crore INR for relinquishing these title rights. As a result, film had to be renamed: ‘Saand Ki Aankh’.
In an interview that Taapsee gave to a leading news channel, she said,
“When I do a film I relate to one thing in a character to start off but here there is not a single thing I can relate to. My age, background, the language is not similar, I am not fond of shooting as well. Everything is alien to me. But it is a beautiful script that touched my heart and I couldn’t say no to it. If this film works then people will remember us for life or maybe they will laugh at us.”
The movie is a Tushar Hiranandani’s directorial debut. It will be competing with Akshay Kumar’s multi-starrer Housefull 4 at the Box-office.
