Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar are set to team up for the first time for renowned filmmaker Anurag Kashyap’s next production venture. Earlier the movie was titled Womaniya, but now the makers have rechristened it Saandh Ki Aankh.
For the uninitiated, the film is a biopic based on gold medallist and the oldest sharpshooters of India, Chandro Tomar and her sister-in-law Prakashi Tomar. Both strong-willed women hail from India’s northern state of Uttar Pradesh.
Presently in their 80’s, Chandro Tomar and Prakashi Tomar have hit headlines on several occasions in the past. Today, they were in news all over again because before commencing the shoot, Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar met them in their hometown and shared a beautiful image on their social media platforms.
“Kick-starting the shoot of our country’s oldest and coolest shooters Chandro (and) Prakashi,” wrote Taapsee.
Pednekar also posted on her Instagram account and wrote, “Old is gold and this is certainly gold! Excited to begin the shooting of this ground-breaking real story of world’s oldest sharpshooters.”
Saandh Ki Aankh is being directed by famed writer Tushar Hiranandani. Anurag Kashyap is co-producing the film along with Nidhi Parmar.
Reliance Entertainment is bankrolling the film.
