Content czarina Ektaa R Kapoor has always kept a keen eye on the content that has a mass appeal. While the filmmaker has always treated her fans with some amazing content, she also hunts for intriguing and captivating content around her. One such amazing content that has grabbed her attention is the action thriller ‘Lakadbaggha’ and for celebrating the amazing response the film is receiving from all across, she has organized a special party for the team members and industry friends.
The party was a big star affair. Besides the cast of the film Anshuman Jha and Riddhi Dogra other guests who attended the party include Honey Trehan, Sanjay Suri, Soni Razdan, Dibakar Banerjee, Gurfateh Pirzada, Sharib Hashmi, Elli Avram, Priyanshu Painyuli, Amit Masurkar amongst other friends from the industry.
Lakadbaggha premiered at the prestigious Kolkata International Film Festival and had its International Premiere at the HBO South Asian International Film Festival & also won the best actor award for Anshuman Jha at HBO SAIFF in New York. It has been garnering critical acclaim and audience love for its noble intentions and raw action set pieces.
“I am in gratitude for the love & support for ‘Lakadbaggha’-especially from the dog lover community. This is the beginning of the world’s first Animal lover vigilante universe & this is a shot in the arm for us to make a bigger, better, part 2. I am grateful to Ekta for launching me a decade ago in ‘LSD’ & for her unwavering support to high concept films like ‘Lakadbaggha’ which is a pure love letter to dogs.” Says the leading man Anshuman Jha.
“Lakadbaggha” is the third production by First Ray Films & boasts of some of the biggest international names in its crew – French Cinematographer Jean Marc Selva, Belgian Music Maestro Simon Fransquet & the Action Director behind cult Action films like Ong-Bak – Kecha Khamphakdee.
“We need to reassess what’s a victory for a film in theatres now, post pandemic. Every film doesn’t need to make a 100cr. The budget of the film determines what’s a success and what’s not. Also, how many screens is a film releasing in.” Said a representative from First Ray Films, the production house.
“For a 111-screen release – Lakadbaggha had an advance booking of 4000 tickets even before release day & has subsequently had a stable run in its two weeks. It’s a success on all counts given the scarcity of audience in theatres right now. We have seen a similar positive respose for our previous release “Ghode Ko Jalebi Khilane Le Ja Riya Hoon” & these films prove that content is indeed king. The fact that it saw a week 2 until the release of Pathaan today is a success in itself.” Shiladitya Bora from Platoon Distribution, who has released the film said.
