7th August 2015 marks the release of ‘Bangistan’, a whip smart and uproarious satire on fundamentalism. Produced by Excel Entertainment, India’s pioneers of contemporary Indian film production under the aegis of producers Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar, and Junglee Pictures, an emerging film studio spanning the development, production, and distribution of Hindi feature films internationally, Bangistan is a comic tale with a strong underlying message highlighting the futility of violence, religious divisions, cultural prejudice, and promoting the message of peace, religious unity and harmony in society.
Directed by Karan Anshuman, “Bangistan” tells the story of two unlikely terrorists, the antitheses of each other, with a common destructive goal, essayed by talented Indian film actors Riteish Deshmukh (Ek Villain, Housefull, Lai Bhaari), Pulkit Samrat (Fukrey, Dolly Ki Doli), and Chandan Roy Sanyal (Kaminey, D-Day). Bollywood beauty Jacqueline Fernandez will appear in a cameo. The music has been penned by Indian composer, music producer and musician Ram Sampath (Delhi Belly, Talaash, and Fukrey).
