March 31 : Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap announced the completion of his upcoming thriller film ‘DoBaaraa’ on social media on Tuesday. The film stars Taapsee Pannu with her ‘Thappad’ co-star Pavail Gulati.
Kashyap took to Instagram to upload a series of pictures. He captioned them as: “And it’s a wrap ...#DoBaaraa pics by @khamkhaphotoartist @cultmoviesofficial @vermillion_world @taapsee @sylvesterfonseca @pavailgulati @itsrahulbhat @saswatachatterjeeofficial @gauravbose_vermillion @sunirkheterpal @sakshi_mehta @ektarkapoor @ruchikaakapoor @thatgirlwithshorthair @aarrian.sawant”. The filmmaker tagged his cast and crew in the post.
‘DoBaaraa’s leading actress Taapsee, who was not there on the last day, had a witty retort to Kashyap’s post. She wrote: “Mereko photoshop karke hi daal dete (you could have photoshopped me into the image).”
The shooting of ‘DoBaaraa’ was halted on March 3 after Income Tax Department’s officials raided homes and offices of Pannu and Kashyap as well as his partners, who launched the now-shuttered production house Phantom Films.
The searches, part of a tax evasion probe against Phantom Films, carried out across 30 locations in Mumbai and Pune, also covered Reliance Entertainment group CEO Shibhasish Sarkar and some executives of celebrity and talent management companies KWAN and Exceed.
Production resumed three days later, with Kashyap sharing a still from the film’s sets on March 6 which was captioned: “and we restart our shoot #DoBaaraa”.
‘DoBaaraa’ is backed by Ekta Kapoor’s Cult Movies, a new division under her Balaji Telefilms banner. The film is penned by Nihit Bhave, who previously wrote Kashyap’s 2020 Netflix movie ‘Choked’.
