Director Anees Bazmee is gearing up to start shooting for his next directorial venture Pagalpanti in next couple of days. Starring John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Arshad Warsi and Ileana D’Cruz in prominent roles, the film is an out-and-out comic-caper produced by Bhushan Kumar, Kumar Mangat and Abhishek Pathak.
According to reports, Bazmee will shoot the film in London and Leeds over a 50-day schedule. Earlier, the makers were looking at releasing the movie in January, 2020. However, if latest reports are to be believed, Anees Bazmee is eyeing a 2019 release for Pagalpanti.
“Anees’ team is flying off to London for the shoot. It is a long schedule for over a month and a half. The release date of the film has been preponed from 2020 to 2019. As a result, they need to wrap the shoot quickly and then get into the post-production,” a source close to the development revealed.
If all goes well, Pagalpanti will make its entry into cinemas on 6th December, 2019. Upon its release, it will clash with Ashutosh Gowariker’s period drama Panipat, starring Arjun Kapoor, Kriti Sanon and Sanjay Dutt.
