After ‘Manmarziyaan’, director Anurag Kashyap has been off the radar for some time. And now we have learnt that the director-producer is currently busy for writing a woman-centric vengeance drama, which will be a homage to Quentin Tarantino.
Anurag has not taken on an independent writing project since a decade. He only writes scripts for films those are either directed or produced by him. The last Hindi film he co-scripted was ‘Bhavesh Joshi Superhero’ with Harshvardhan Kapoor in the lead role.
According to reports, this time the talented writer and the director joined hands with ace actor-producer Nikhil Dwivedi, who turned producer last year with the blockbuster women-centric film ‘Veere Di Wedding’.
The dynamic duo are all set to enthrall the cinephiles with a homage to famous director Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Kill Bill’ series. The movie which featured Uma Thurman in the lead as bride who swears revenge on a team of assassins and their leader Bill, after the team tried to kill her and her unborn child. If the reports are to be believed, Kashyap is penning the script for the same and he is really excited about this collaboration.
A source close to the development has revealed that the makers have already approached an A-list actress from Bollywood and will be finalizing all the formalities in a few days. The untitled venture is expected to roll in the middle of the year.
While makers are currently hunting for the shooting locations, we have learnt from another source that Nikhil plans to shoot the film in Bhutan, Sikkim, Japan and Mumbai.
The actor turned producer Nikhil’s debut production-venture ‘Veere Di Wedding’ was a bold film focusing on girl bonding with strong female leads, featuring Kareena Kapoor Khan, Swara Bhaskar and Sonam Kapoor. After the last woman-centric venture, producer Nikhil wanted to continue with the idea of producing one woman-centric film every year, and thus the new project came on his way.

Nikhil has known Anurag for years now and he was supposed to act in one of Anurag’s film a while ago. However, that project didn’t materialize. But finally, they are happy to collaborate on a subject close to their hearts.
