Shoojit Sircar wraps up the shoot of Running!

The Madras Café director’s upcoming film’s shoot is complete

A little birdie tells us that the shooting of Running is complete. Running is produced by Vicky Donor director Shoojit Sircar and his partner Ronnie Lahiri(Rising Sun Films) and co-produced by Crouching Tiger motion pictures. The film is a young romantic comedy starring Amit Sadh (Kai Po Che!) and Taapsee Pannu (Chashme Baddoor) in the lead and is being directed by first-timer Amit Roy, who has previously worked as a cinematographer in films like Sarkar and Dum Maaro Dum.

Running revolves around a website which helps people to elope and get married. When Ram Bharose (Amit) and Nimmi (Taapsee) fall in love while on the run, one hilarious situation leads to another and they have to handle their own running shaadi. Add to that a wide array of unique characters make for an endearing light-hearted story.

Amit and Tapsee are quite excited about the project. “Running has been a fabulous experience with like-minded people coming together. I hope the audiences have as much fun as we had making the film,” says Amit. Taapsee adds, “We didn’t even realise when we started the shoot and when we finished it. Now I can’t wait to watch the ready film on the big screen. It’s going to be a winner.”

Running will run to theaters in mid-2014.
