Bollywood filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar, who is a National Award-winner, has joined hands with Tamannaah Bhatia. The film, titled 'Babli Bouncer', will feature a female-centric story filled with slice-of-life and soul-stirring characters, the makers said today. It will be made in Telugu, Tamil, and Hindi.
To be produced by Fox Star Studios and Junglee Pictures, the fictional story is set in Asola Fatepur, a town in South Delhi and known as the 'Bouncer Town'.
The drama will tell a never-before-told narrative. "I want to portray this story of a female bouncer through a slice-of-life comedic tone that also leaves a lasting impact," the director today said. The travails of women bouncers have been woven into an engaging story.
Tamannaah Bhatia is playing a substantial character. "The director has a flair for crafting defining female protagonists and Babli too is such a powerful character. For the first time, a film will explore the story of a female bouncer, and I am more than excited to be her voice," the actress, who will next be seen in the Telugu film 'F3', said.
The producers have described the movie as a rooted, inspiring and feel-good story.
Also starring Saurabh Shukla, Abhishek Bajaj and Sahil Vaid, the film is written and directed by Amit Joshi, Aradhana Debnath and Madhur Bhandarkar.
