Earlier, it has been reported that Anurag Kasyap has been preparing for his next. It is expected to be a sports drama named Womaniya with Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar. However, there seems to be a problem on the way. The movie has been put on a hold now. Budget of the movie is the reason behind delay.
Just after the break out of #MeToo Movement, Vikas Bahl who is a co-founder of Phantom Films has been accused of sexual harassment. Therefore, Phantom Films has been dissolved. Individual projects of Anurag Kasyap’s are struggling at the moment. It is becoming hard to stay afloat with all the movies as a result. According to reports, “Taapsee and Bhumi were to prep for a month, following which the film was to be shot in Uttar Pradesh. The movie required antique weapons that were proving to be expensive. The makers were breaching the budget. Also, given the indefinite delay, the actors eventually moved on to other projects. It will be tough to reschedule their dates now”. Writer Tushar Hiranandani is expected to be the director of the movie while Anurag Kayap in collaboration with Nidhi Parmar and Shibasish Sarkar is producing it.
Through the sports drama Womaniya, Octogenarian sharpshooters from UP named Chandro and Prakashi Tomar are expected to be showcased. Next, Taapsee Pannu will be featured in Badla, Mission Mangal and Tadka. On the other hand, Bhumi’s movie Sonchiriya is scheduled to release soon.
