Director-Producer Anurag Kashyap is all set to produce ‘Womaniya’, featuring Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar in the role of professional rifle shooters, trade sources said on Thursday.
‘Inspired by the life of real-life shooters, Prakashi and Chandro from the Tomar family, who are senior citizens, the film is set against the backdrop of rural India,’ sources said.
‘Both, Taapsee and Bhumi are expected to undergo extensive physical training to play this role,’ the sources said.
‘The film is expected to roll by the end of January 2019 and the actresses are expected to wrap it up by March. The preparation for the film will be beginning in the next few days, after which the team is expected to take off to Uttar Pradesh for a month-long schedule,’ the sources added.
Produced by Anurag Kashyap along with Shibashish Sarkar and Nidhi Parmar, ‘Womaniya’ is directed by writer Tushar Hiranandani.
