Director Dibakar Banerjee's latest movie Shanghai, which
is distributed by PVR Pictures, is scheduled to release on 8th
June, 2012. The political thriller, which is currently being shot
in Maharashtra, features actors Emraan Hashmi, Abhay Deol, Kalki
Koechlin and Prosenjit Chatterjee in the leads.
Shanghai has been inspired by the Costa Gavras directed
movie Z, which was released in 1969. The film is based on
the life of politicians and their greed. The movie talks about the
present roller coaster expose of big money politics and how the
common man gets his revenge back.
Director Dibakar Banerjee is thrilled at the way
Shanghai has shaped up. Banerjee said: “Frankly I have
been stunned by the performances from our stars and our character
artistes. I can safely say that all preconceived notions that
people have about both Abhay and Emraan are going to be shattered
by this movie."
