For the past few weeks, Abhishek Chaubey’s next, tentatively titled Chambal, has been making a lot of buzz. While Sushant Singh Rajput spoke about kicking off the film, the leading lady of the movie, Bhumi Pednekar has been sharing about her preps for the same on Instagram. Now the latest actor to join the cast is Manoj Bajpayee.
The actor will play a pivotal role of a dacoit in this forthcoming gritty drama. Furthermore, Bajpayee who is excited about working with Abhishek was all praises for the Udta Punjab filmmaker and asserted about how he has loved the filmmaker’s work in the past which includes Ishqiya and Dedh Ishqiya.
Manoj Bajpayee did not divulge many details but said that it is an initial stage and that they are yet to even decide a name of the said character. The actor claimed that for him it was more about working with Abhishek than the role and also expressed about how impressed he has been with the way Chaubey sets his stories in the midst of rural or semi-urban areas.
Manoj Bajpayee will start shooting for the film in February whereas the leading pair of the film, Sushant Singh Rajput and Bhumi Pednekar will start their schedule in December itself. Bhumi has already flown to Chambal to start her preparations for the film a little early so that she can get to understand the locality and her character a little better.
