After making waves with the announcement of a multi-platform content alliance between Abundantia Entertainment of India and Crypt TV of the USA, the two companies announced their first production together – Chhori – the Hindi remake of the hit-Marathi horror film, Lapachhapi (translated as ‘Hide and Seek’).

Talented and youth-favourite star Nushrat Bharucha with films like the Pyaar Ka Punchama series, Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety and Dream Girl to her credit has been brought on-board to play the lead role in the film and Vishal Furia, who directed the original, helms the Hindi remake as well.

Lapachhapi (2017) caught people’s attention with its genre-breaking take on horror as it told the story of age-old societal beliefs and practices that give rise to tales of pure terror.

The film’s unique blend of scary and social drama made it a thrilling as well as an emotional ride. Apart from his successful outing with the film, Vishal Furia also has to his credit, another horror film, Bali (Marathi), starring Swapnil Joshi and successful streaming shows like Criminal Justice and Bombers.

Abundantia Entertainment, producer of successful and impactful content across screens like Airlift, Baby, Toilet-Ek Prem Katha, Shakuntala Devi (under production), Durgavati (under production), Sherni (under production) and the Amazon Original Series Breathe – is currently developing the film under its horror content vertical ‘Psych’ along with Crypt, the producer of various award-winning films and series’ like The BirchThe Look-See and Sunny Family Cult.

The work on the script is currently underway and Vishal Kapoor, who also wrote the original, is writing Chhori.

A thrilled Nushrat Bharucha says, “I am extremely excited to be a part of Chhori. This genre excites me and the fact that the story is anchored in practices of our society, makes it relatable and impactful. I have wanted to work with Vishal Furia and I am so glad we’ve finally collaborated on Chhori, which is so close to his heart. Abundantia Entertainment and Vikram Malhotra have always backed high-quality, progressive stories and are known to make films with strong female voices – and as an actor, I couldn’t ask for more. Our collaboration with an international creator like Crypt TV and its CEO Jack Davis, whose expertise in this genre is unparalleled, makes this even more thrilling. I have enjoyed some of their content thoroughly and in my very first meeting with Jack we connected instantly on how we envisaged this genre and film. I am looking forward to beginning my experience with each one of them.”

Producer Vikram Malhotra outlines his vision for Chhori, “Abundantia Entertainment has always believed in supporting progressive and insightful stories. I am delighted that we are extending our content philosophy further with the Hindi remake of Lapachhapi in partnership with Crypt TV and Jack Davis. I am confident that our collaboration on this film will allow us to create some irresistibly scary content under our latest vertical ‘Psych’. I am also delighted to collaborate with the immensely talented Nushrat. I have seen her grow as an artist and her dedication to her craft is amazing. Nushrat’s appeal with the youth will help drive the film with the fans of the genre. I am especially delighted to work with a brilliant, young filmmaker like Vishal, who has woven an evocative narrative that cuts across themes and has a universal appeal.

Jack Davis adds, Co-Founder and CEO – Crypt TV, adds, “I am ecstatic to partner with Abundantia and Vikram on this film. When I first saw it in Mumbai with Vikram, I was blown away and instantly knew it could lead the way in elevating the horror genre in India. Abundantia and Crypt share a passion for using genre as a way to tell culture changing stories and I found the perfect mix of that and meaningful social issues in Lapachhapi. Working with an exceptional filmmaker like Vishal Furia is a privilege and key to telling such an important story in the horror genre. And to have Nushrat Bharucha playing the lead in the film is a true thrill. She is a world class actor who has such a strong connection with the youth in India and she will be essential to elevating this story and creating social conversation around the film in India and the world.”

Director Vishal Furia says, “When I first heard that Vikram Malhotra and Abundantia Entertainment were considering a remake of my film, I was thrilled – simply because I believe there is a lot more I want to say with this story. Getting a chance to revisit the film has been an amazing experience. I want to take the remake a few steps further and make a much more impactful, scary and thrilling film – more so because I am grateful for all the love I still receive for Lapachhapi. Partnering with Vikram and his team along with Jack Davis has been a wonderful process and I am confident that all of us can take this film to even bigger heights. Nushrat is a very strong and promising actor who I believe is well equipped to essay a strong role all by herself. I have wanted to collaborate with her for a while now and I am glad that we finally have a film together.”

Sony Music India drops music album of Dil Bechara by A. R. Rahman

Dil Bechara is Sushant Singh Rajput last film directed by Mukesh Chhabra

Published at

on

Composed by the Oscar-winning legend, A. R. Rahman, the entire music album of Mukesh Chhabra’s upcoming film, Dil Bechara, releases today as a celebration of the legacy of the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who will be seen starring in it along with debutante, Sanjana Sanghi. The trailer of the film dropped on Monday and became the most viewed trailer on YouTube surpassing the likes and viewership of Avengers: Endgame within just 24 hours.

Love has been pouring in for Chhabra’s forthcoming directorial debut and fans of Rajput and the writer of the book the film is being adapted from (John Green), just can’t wait to watch it. In view of the unprecedented anticipation for its streaming, Sony Music India releases the complete album composed by the celebrated maestro A. R. Rahman.

The soundtrack to Dil Bechara comprises a diverse mix of songs sure to resonate with both young listeners and old romantics. The film’s eponymous title track, sung by Rahman, is a vibrant celebration of life’s ups and downs, diving into the soul of a generation that wears its heart on its sleeve. “Maskhari,” a lighthearted song about friendship, features Sunidhi Chauhan and Hriday Gattani on the vocals, while Shreya Ghoshal and Mohit Chauhan’s “Taare Gin” plucks at the strings of new love. On“Khulke Jeena Ka,” an adaptation of Rahman’s unreleased Tamil track “Kannil Oru Thali,” Arijit Singh and Shashaa Tirupathi sing about the adventures of youth. “Main Tumhara,” sung by Jonita Gandhi and Hriday Gattani, is a pivotal song on the film’s soundtrack; a revelatory track tied to the film’s mystery. Originally incomplete in the story, Kizzie (Sanjana Sanghi) and Manny (Sushant Singh Rajput)—the protagonists of Dil Bechara—are on a quest to complete this very song.

Says A.R. Rahman, “Composing music doesn’t have any formula, it is a thing of the heart. When I write songs, I let them breathe for some time and then present it to the director. It was a great experience collaborating with Mukesh Chhabra on this film; his enthusiasm is infectious. This whole album is carefully curated because the film has so much heart, and now, memories of Sushant. It was a pleasure to work with lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya on this soundtrack of love. The songs are eclectic and feature an amazing lineup of India’s top singers and musicians. I hope you will like the album.”

Director of the film, Mukesh Chhabra says, “Befitting the story of the film, its music album is an emotional rollercoaster of romance, friendship and the odds pitted against two young people in love. Having A. R. Rahman aboard for the music of my directorial debut is a dream come true. What’s amazing about the genius of Rahman in this album is that it beautifies the narrative and takes it forward. I can only hope that the listeners enjoy it.”

A Hindi adaptation of John Green’s The Fault In Our Stars, Dil Bechara is a story of Kizie and Manny, two ordinary people who fall in love as a tragic turn of events close in on them. Produced by Fox Star Studios, directed by Mukesh Chhabra and starring Sushant Singh Rajput and Sanjana Sanghi, Dil Bechara will be streaming on Disney Hotstar on the 24th of July, 2020. Released by Sony Music India and composed by A. R. Rahman, the music album of the upcoming film is available to listeners now.
