The teaser of Milan Luthria’s upcoming film Baadshaho starring Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi, Vidyut Jammwal, Ileana D’Cruz, Esha Gupta and Sanjay Mishra has made a powerful impact among moviegoers. From the high-octane action stunts, to the background score to the locales – everything about the teaser has caught the audience’s attention. The film which is set during the Emergency period in 1975 has also created a lot of curiosity about the film. Well, what’s interesting is that the idea of Baadshaho came to Milan while he was shooting for Kachche Dhaage with in Rajasthan.
Milan revealed, “I got the story idea of Baadshaho on the sets of Kachche Dhaage when a distributor friend of mine dropped in on the sets (Kachche Dhaage) in Rajasthan and told me about what happened in various places in the state during Emergency. The raids that were conducted on several royal families for non declaration of wealth. How the wealth was taken away in truckloads and no one knew where it went. It felt just right for a larger than life film. I got busy on other films like Taxi No 9211, Once Upon A Time In Mumbai and The Dirty Picture, but good stories never leave your mind. I always thought I’d make it when I had the right cast to support it. When it could be a genuine multi starter.”
In an interview with TOI he expanded more about these raids, “These incidents did happen during the Emergency and are documented. So many valuables, including antiques, gold and jewellery were taken away, but nobody knows what happened to them. That is the premise on which our film is set. We wanted to make an entertainer that is larger than life and with six strong characters, the title had to justify them all. All six are baadshahos.”
Considering the fact that Milan has always surprised the audience with a unique subject in all his films, Baadshaho seems that it will showcase a story that will leave the audience entranced to the last fade to black.
