‘Udta Punjab’ director, Abhishek Chaubey’s next will be a biopic

Filmmaker Abhishek Chaubey has been garnering praises from all over, for his gritty portrayal of drug abuse in Punjab, in ‘Udta Punjab’.

The movie has been performing really well at the box-office and Abhishek is happy riding high on its success and is in no hurry to don the director’s cap as of yet. The next, we hear, Abhishek is honing his skills as a producer. According to SpotboyE, Chaubey will be co-producing Satish Kaushik’s next directorial venture, which is a biopic.

“I have the rights to make a biopic on a man in Azamgarh (UP), who was declared dead on paper when he was alive and kicking. He had to fight for 18 years to prove that he is not dead. It’s a black comedy and will be produced by Abhishek Chaubey along with my company and Honey Trehan’s MacGuffin Pictures,” Satish told SpotboyE.

He adds, “I refrained from directing it before because biopics weren’t as popular then.”
