Ritesh Batra who is all set to release his next film ‘Photograph’ starring Sanya Malhotra and Nawazuddin Siddiqui shares his experience of shooting in Mumbai again. The critically acclaimed filmmaker has gained limelight right from his first film ‘The Lunchbox‘ which went to various international film festivals and is one of the most loved films in Indian Cinema. His next ‘Photograph’ will be releasing across India on March 8.

After ‘The Lunchbox’ the director made two English films ‘Our Souls at Night’ and ‘The Sense of an Ending’ (both 2017). With endearing love stories, he returned back to Mumbai to shoot his fourth film. When asked him about it Ritesh said, “Yes, I loved shooting in Mumbai again and reuniting with my crew. I look forward to doing it once more. It’s important to tell Indian stories to the world through our own lens, I feel excited.” The backdrop of the film is set in Dharavi, Mumbai, which makes it even more interesting.

‘Photograph’ reunites Ritesh with Nawazuddin after their successful collaboration in ‘The Lunchbox’. Sanya Malhotra who was last seen in the blockbuster ‘Badhaai Ho’, will be seen essaying the role of an introverted college girl who tops in her studies. This is her first collaboration with Ritesh.

‘Photograph’ has received immense love at the Sundance Film Festival where it was screened. It opened up to great reviews. Ritesh Batra and Sanya Malhotra were spotted interacting with the audiences at the screening. The Hollywood Reporter had written, “‘Photograph’ is a satisfying, unswoony romance.
