The man who is considered as a ‘Lucky Mascot’ by biggies in Bollywood, Mushtaq Sheikh the writer and author comes back after a long gap with Priyadarshan’s directed upcoming thriller RANGREZZ which is all set to release this month. The film is written by Mushtaq Sheikh and is the remake of Tamil cult classic ‘Naadodigal’. The film stars Jackky Bhagnani and Priya Anand in the lead roles.
Mushtaq had earlier wrote films such as ‘Om Shanti Om’, ‘RaOne’ and ‘Billu’ for Priyadarshan. On ‘RaOne’ not working the way it was expected, Mushtaq said in one of his recent interviews “Isn’t it sad that a movie that made more than 240 crores worldwide needs me to even defend it. It’s pathetic that our industry is such that whenever someone tries something new, the people from inside the industry are the first ones to write it off. The negativity around the film started gathering steam and it affected its overall business. ‘Ra.One’ is clearly the victim of negativity generated by vested interest. All we know that we made an honest effort which was acknowledged by the paying audience. Within there lies our victory.”
RANGREZZ tells the story of three friends who goes out of their way to help a friend getting his love back. And when they see things not getting worked out in between the couple, They take another daring step. Going by the film’s trailer, The look of the film is Eye-catching. Mushtaq is also working on another Thriller to be directed by Priyadarshan immediately after RANGREZZ.
