Chennai, Aug 28 : Producer JSK Satish says the city of Kolkata, which forms the backdrop of upcoming Tamil-Kannada bilingual thriller "Howrah Bridge", plays a pivotal part in the film's story.
The film is a woman-centric thriller starring Priyanka Upendra in the lead.
"The film is based on a true incident and it will be an edge-of-the-seat thriller. The story is set in Kolkata, and the city plays a character of prime importance. Audiences will develop a deep emotional bond with the film," Satish told IANS.
Priyanka's real life daughter Aishwarya plays her daughter in the film.
