Director and producer Anubhav Sinha is
all set to bring Rishi Kapoor and Tapasee Pannu together for his
upcoming movie 'Mulk.'
The movie is a social thriller, based on true life events that will go on floors in October.
It will be shot in Varanasi and Lucknow and is scheduled to release early next year.
Anubhav, who has directed 'Dus' and 'Cash' in the past, will revisit the thriller genre after close to a decade.
Screenplay writer-producer Mushtaq Shiekh, who is known for his prolific repertoire of work in films like 'Om Shanti Om,' 'Gulaab Gang,' 'Ra One' will be the associate producer of 'Mulk.'
The plot of the film revolves around the story of a joint family, hailing from a small town in India, who are out to reclaim their honour, after being embroiled in a controversy.
The film will also star Rajat Kapur and Prateik Babbar.
According to Anubhav, "I am doing a thriller after 10 years and this will be quite different from what I have attempted in the past. I'm returning to my roots after so many years. It's my way of giving back to my hometown and it feels emotionally satisfactory. The plot of the film revolves around true life events. I am yet in the process of closing in on a few more actors."
Speaking on the same, Mushtaq stated, "Some stories resonate with your soul. They are heartfelt yet thrilling. Mulk is one such story -that has a pulsating vibe to it and will have you completely captivated."
