Starring Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu, and directed by Sujoy Ghosh, the revenge thriller, Badla, will release on March 8, 2019. Badla is an official Hindi-language remake of the Spanish film, The Invisible Guest (Contratiempo).
Badla marks the fourth collaboration between Amitabh Bachchan and Sujoy Ghosh. The 75-year-old actor had starred in Ghosh’s 2009 film, Aladin. He had also voiced the song Ekla Cholo Re in Kahaani (2012) and starred in Te3n (2016), which was produced by Ghosh.
Talking about the cast, Ghosh said earlier, “When you get an actor like Mr Amitabh Bachchan, half your battle is won. He is every director’s delight and I am very excited to direct him. Also I have been trying to work with Taapsee for a while and this is the perfect story to collaborate with her.”
While Tapsee said before the shoot began, “This is going to be a riveting thriller. It’s Sujoy’s favourite genre and I am yet another time out of my comfort zone which I actually enjoy the most. When you are in safe hands of a brilliant filmmaker and an ace co-actor there is nothing to fear.”
Produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chilles Entertainment, the film was shot in Scotland and recently wrapped. About the end of the shoot, Ghosh tweeted, “BADLA shoot ends. had the most awesome awesome crew who did all the hard work and of course.. sir @SrBachchan and @taapsee who took care of the acting dept.. main sirf chance pe dance kiya..”
