Director Shoojit Sircar, the man behind last year’s superhit Vicky Donor, is ready with his next film and with this the director explores a different genre. Madras Cafe, a political thriller starring John Abraham and Nargis Fakhri among others, is now complete and is set to release on 30th August, 2013. The film is co-produced by his production house Rising Sun Films.
The film will also see the coming together of Shoojit and music director Shantanu Moitra seven years after Yahaan. Says Shantanu: “It’s been a long journey. I gave Shoojit his first music video for my album Mann Ke Manjeere and then I scored his first film Yahaan. So, Madras Cafe is like visiting an old friend, who is also the finest musical brain a director can have!”
Shoojit is equally emphatic to make music with Shantanu again. Shoojit said ” Shantanu and me go back a long way, since our college days in Delhi…working with him is like a party or bong adda u can say…Madras Café is a serious film and we have already started jamming…the background score will be an integral part of this film..really excited to team up again….”
In the film John plays an intelligence officer. About the political thriller he has told TOI, “I am very excited about this. If you want to compare it with an international film, it is like Argo.”
Stay tuned we will have much more!
