Legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan and Tapsee Pannu starrer ‘Badla’ is off to a good start it seems with collecting around 5.94 crore on the opening day. Directed by Sujoy Ghosh, the suspense thriller has managed to impress the audience as well as film critics.
‘Badla’, produced by Red Chillies Entertainment in association with Azure Entertainment, is an official remake of the 2017 Spanish film The Invisible Guest. The story revolves around a young married entrepreneur who finds herself in a locked hotel room next to the body of her dead lover. Hoping to find answers, she hires a prestigious lawyer to help her solve the mystery of what really happened.
One of the other reasons the film has been in talks is because of the ‘Unplugged’ series, an innovative promotional strategy used by the makers. From giving insights into the crime thriller ‘Badla’, solving riddles, and sharing interesting anecdotes from the shoot, Amitabh and Shah Rukh left no stone unturned to keep the audience entertained in ‘Badla Unplugged’ episodes.
“The role I play is a competent retired lawyer who has been hired by Taapsee Pannu to solve her case. My character hasn’t lost any case in his 40 years of career”, said Amitabh about his character, Badal Gupta, in the film.
Both Amitabh and Shah Rukh shared screen space after a long time and thus ensured that all the episodes of the candid chat show had a complete fun element in it.
Presented by Red Chillies Entertainment in association with Azure Entertainment, ‘Badla’ is co-produced by Gaurav Verma and produced by Gauri Khan, Sunir Kheterpal and Akshai Puri.
The crime thriller starring Amitabh Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu, Amrita Singh and Manav Kaul among others in pivotal roles, released on March 8.
The film’s release clashed with Hollywood’s ‘Captain Marvel’ though, which expectedly saw a grand opening like other movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
