‘Paan Singh Tomar’ director announces ‘Valmiki Ki Bandook’ with Jimmy Shergill

It will be a film on the gun culture of UP, again shot in Chambal

Tigmanshu Dhulia, whose film Paan Singh Tomar has been received with rave reviews last weekend, has announced a new film, Valmiki Ki Bandook. The director has teamed up with Jimmy Shergill again for the film. A satire on Uttar Pradesh’s gun culture, the project will be shot in the Chambal Valley. Dhulia had directed Jimmy in Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster. But with Valmiki Ki Bandook, Dhulia is associated as the creative director, while his assistant Karan Bhutani will wield the megaphone.

“The locations would be real, true to the script. The film is a satire, with rustic looks and language from the heartland. We will start our first schedule from Chambal,” said Bhutani.

Valmiki Ki Bandook is being produced by Vidisha Productions and it will go on floor as soon as the rest of the cast is finalised.
