Sriram Raghavan’s Badlapur, a dark thriller produced by Dinesh Vijan of Maddock films, created a whole lot of curiosity around its title. Why is the movie named Badlapur? Well, apparently the story behind its title is rather interesting.
The film is largely based on revenge – “Badla”. It’s about a man Raghu (played by Varun Dhawan) who sets out to take revenge after being wronged and undergoes a transition during the course of the story, leading to “badlav”(change).
And those familiar with Mumbai are aware that there is a station named Badlapur on the Central Railway. It’s heard that Badlapur used to be one of the stations where the trains would change tracks. This aspect has a massive role to play in the film as the station features in the backdrop when the plot undergoes a change.
Badlapur, presented by Eros International and Maddock Films, is all set to release on 20th Feb.
