Now this is a first for Yash Raj Films. The premiere production house of Bollywood is now planning to cash in on their Bengali audience by releasing Gunday starring Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra in Bengali. A smart movie by YRF, we should say, given that the movie Gunday has a significant Bengali presence as well. A significant part of the movie has been shot in Kolkata and other parts of Bengal. Not to forget the music of this movie has been given by the man whom the entire Bengal loves- the master of bling – Bappi da.
Says a spokesperson of Gunday “The film is set during Calcutta’s most turbulent times of the 70’s and the characters are steeped in the culture of that time. Consequently, the plans for releasing the film also in Bengali was finalised at the pre-production stage.”
YRF plans to release a Bengali teaser and poster of the movie this coming week. The movie will be released in Bengali on the same date as that of its Hindi release which is 14th February.
Looks like lovers in Bengal can celebrate this Valentine with a Hindi movie flavour.
