The film is based on the life of Chandro and Prakashi, who are from Uttar Pradesh’s Johri village and reportedly took up sharpshooting in their 50s. Taapsee and Bhumi will be seen playing the role of the women sharpshooters in the upcoming film.
Chandro is fondly called as shooter ‘dadi’ and is among the world’s oldest female sharpshooters.
The film will mark writer Tushar Hiranandani’s debut as a director. It will be jointly-produced by Anurag Kashyap and Nidhi Parmar. Other details about the film are kept under wraps.
Hiranandani has earlier worked on films like ‘Main Tera Hero’, ‘Ek Villain’ and ‘Half Girlfriend’.
The film was embroiled in a controversy related to the title of the movie. According to reports, the upcoming film was originally titled ‘Womaniya’ and was later renamed as ‘Saand Ki Aankh’. This comes after a titles right dispute.
On February 9, Anurag took to his Twitter handle to share the news, announcing the name of the film. He wrote, “So we have decided to not pay the extortion sum of 1 crore to @PritishNandy. He can sit on the title and warm it and hope for it to hatch into something worthwhile for his company for once.”
“while we go ahead with what @taapsee @bhumipednekar @tushar1307 @nidhiparmar @RelianceEnt @prakashjha27 @ItsVineetSingh @realshooterdadi @shooterdadi want the film to be ..”SAAND KI AANKH”. I am sorry that i had faith in Mr. Nandy,” he wrote in another tweet earlier.
A per media reports, Nandy’s company already owned the title, which was brought to the makers notice after they announced the movie and went for the name registration.
Apart from this film, Taapsee will next be seen in multi-starrer ‘Mission Mangal’, whereas Bhumi will appear in ‘Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare’ and Takht. (ANI)
