Starring John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Ileana D’ Cruz, Arshad Warsi, Pulkit Samrat, Kriti Kharbanda, Urvashi Rautela and Saurabh Shukla in pivotal roles, director Anees Bazmee’s much-awaited comic-caper Pagalpanti has locked a date for its theatrical release.

Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Kumar Mangat and Abhishek Pathak, Pagalpanti will land in theatres on 6th December, 2019. It will clash with Ashutosh Gowariker’s much-talked-about period drama Panipat.

Anil Kapoor and John Abraham have previously worked with Anees Bazmee in Welcome Back (2015), while Ileana D’Cruz has shared the screen space with Anil Kapoor in the Anees Bazmee-directed Mubarkan (2018).

Bhushan Kumar, who is producing the film with Kumar Mangat after Raid (2018), said in a statement, “T-Series and Kumarji’s Panorama Studios have worked before with Raid and doing Pagalpanti was an immediate yes. Kumarji and his son Abhishek got us the script of this film and my team and I were in splits with what we heard. Plus the entire team right from director Anees to actors Anilji, John and Ileana, we have worked with.”

The producer went on to add, “Anees directed one of our biggest hit Ready (2011), John and we have collaborated before and are now doing several films together. And I have always liked the way Arshad has left us in split with his comic timings. We are happy to have Pulkit Samrat and Kriti Kharbanda onboard, too. The characters written are so hilarious that you are laughing throughout.”

Pagalpanti starts rolling from 17th February and will have a 90-day start-to-finish schedule in London and Leeds.
