Bollywood as an industry has come leaps and bounds and become very professional. Gone are the days of makers and stars going through the motions and taking it easy. Now, Abhishek Chaubey’s flick ‘Sonchiriya‘ is about to release and the makers have done everything to replicate the real experience on how dacoits live their lives.

According to a report in DNA, to make ‘Sonchiriya’ look authentic a sequence was shot with 50-60 men who travelled all the way from Punjab. These individuals were trained to fire real guns. Abhishek Chaubey in 2016 had made ‘Udta Punjab’, which dealt with the drug menace in the state of Punjab.

To make the sequences look real and genuine, ample time was spent on training the background artists to make sure they look rough and fearless to add strength to their respective roles. ‘Sonchiriya’ is a very hard-hitting and realistic film which deals with a very sensitive topic. The film talks about the journey of dacoits and how they combat situation in their lives.

‘Sonchiriya’, apart from Sushant Singh Rajput and Bhumi Pednekar also stars Ranvir Shorey, Manoj Bajpayee and Ashutosh Rana in lead roles. The cast and crew of the film had faced many adverse situations during the making of the film and it wasn’t easy to shoot in remote areas. ‘Sonchiriya’ is based in rural India and to do justice the film, makers have tried their best to show the reality.

‘Sonchiriya’ is slated to release on February 8, 2019. Stay tuned to Bollywood Bubble for latest news and updates.
