Rajkummar Rao to star in Anubhav Sinha’s Bheed produced by Bhushan Kumar

Actor Rajkummar Rao has teamed up with director Anubhav Sinha for his next film titled Bheed. The film is jointly produced by Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series and Anubhav Sinha. Rajkummar will be the lead. The movie will be a hard-hitting social drama. The announcement is made today. T-Series tweeted, “@RajkummarRao to star in a hard hitting social drama, #Bheed. Directed by @anubhavsinha. Jointly produced by #BhushanKumar and Anubhav Sinha. @TSeries @BenarasM #KrishanKumar.”

Like Anubhav’s previous works, Bheed is a socio-political drama and will be shot across Lucknow. It is expected to go on floors in November.

Rajkummar is thrilled to be working with Anubhav Sinha. He said in a statement that “it’s a matter of great honour and privilege to collaborate with a filmmaker who has such a distinct voice”. He added, “Reuniting with Bhushan Kumar feels like coming back on home turf after the success of Ludo last year. I have always found myself gravitating towards stories that trigger conversation. Even as an entertainer, I want my work to get people thinking.” Rao also said that the subject of Bheed is important and the character needs him to stretch himself as an artist, beyond his comfort zone. “I can’t wait to start shooting and lose myself in this universe,” he said.

While Anubhav said that Raj is a very intriguing actor and he always had a keen desire to work with him and he also feels honoured to collaborate with Bhushan Kumar.

Kumar is also equally excited for this project and he can’t wait for Bheed to Kick off. Talking about Raj, he said that he is a wonderful actor and he can’t think of anyone better to pull off a film like this.

We are excited about Bheed. What about you?
