Sushant Singh Rajput has been hopping from one movie set
to another. Just yesterday, he wrapped up the shooting of Drive and this
morning he was spotted shooting for his next flick, Sonchiriya. The actor
released the first look of the project a while ago and captioned it,
“SONCHIRIYA सोन चिरैया #AbhishekChaubey@RSVPMovies @RonnieScrewvala @honeytrehan @psbhumi @BajpayeeManoj @RanvirShorey@ashutoshrana10 (sic).”
Sushant can be seen in the get up of a dacoit. As
previously reported, the film will be based around the valleys of Chambal which
are infested with dacoits. Sushant would be playing the leader of one such
gang. Thus, the entirety of the shoot will happen in the Chambal ravines.
If we recall, Irrfan Khan did a superb job of playing a dacoit hailing from the same region in his film, Paan Singh Tomar.
Giving Sushant company in the project would be Bhumi Pednekar, who will be playing his love interest.
Coming to the directors, Sonchiriya is Abhishek Chaubey’s
fourth directorial after Ishqiya, Dedh Ishqiya and Udta Punjab.
The film is said to be shot in a start-to-finish schedule, and will probably hit theatres later this year.
