Kab se pooch rahe hai picture ka naam kya hai? PICTURE KA NAAM MIL GAYA!!! I’m thrilled to announce my film KHANDAANI SHAFAKHANA releasing on 26th July! @fukravarun @badboyshah @shilpidasgupta #BhushanKumar #MahaveerJain @mriglamba @gautam.m1 @tseries.official #khandaanishafakhaana
Khandaani Shafakhani is being promoted as a slice-of-life film, which will offer some light-hearted entertainment to audiences. The film has been produced by Bhushan Kumar, Mrighdeep Singh Lamba and Mahaveer Jain, and directed by debutante filmmaker, Shilpi Dasgupta. Annu Kapoor will also be playing a prominent role in the movie along with singer Badshah, who will make his acting debut with Khandaani Shafakhana.
Sonakshi will be playing a carefree Punjabi girl in this film which has a women-centric theme. In a statement, Sonakshi shared her views, “I am extremely happy to be part of this film which is so close to the world around us, to step into the shoes of a small town girl, and face the hilarious, madcap challenges thrown at her. Full of flavour, fun and emotions; I am so looking forward to begin this journey.”
It has also been reported by Bollywood Hungama that a Punjabi hit track will be recreated for this film by music composer, Tanishk Bagchi, and Badshaah will showcase his rapping skills as part of it.
The film will hit theatres on 26th July, clashing with the release of the much-hyped Mental Hai Kya. Meanwhile, Sonakshi — who made her debut with blockbuster Dabangg in 2010 — is busy with the shooting of Dabangg 3, opposite Salman Khan. She was last seen in Abhishek Verman’s Kalank, in a supporting role, alongside co-stars Aditya Roy Kapur, Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan.
