The first look poster of Tigmanshu Dhulia's much-awaited film Milan Talkies is out now! The film stars Ali Fazal and Shraddha Srinath in the lead roles. Set in Uttar Pradesh, Milan Talkies is a love story set around 2010-2013 when single screen theatres were still prominent in smaller Indian towns and film print was still in circulation.
The first look poster features the lead pair sitting in front of a Milan Talkies billboard-cum-glow sign. Ali Fazal shared this poster on his Twitter handle and wrote, "Laundagiri! Baikati aur usmein se panpi hamari love story. Catch the 1st look of our film #MilanTalkies now, trailer out tomorrow @shraddhasrinath @iamsanjaimishra @ashutoshrana10 @reecha_sinha & @sikandarkher Directed by @dirtigmanshu & produced by P S Chhatwal."
Speaking about the film, Ali says, "What really hit my heart was the fact that this boy works at a projection room that is the hub of communication to the outside world in a small city like Allahabad and yet he is unable to communicate his love to his girlfriend.
He further added, It is a story revolving around them in the period when the single screen where making the big shift to the multiplex. It is an unconventional love story."
Director Tigmanshu Dhulia shares, "Milan Talkies is very close to my heart. It is a beautiful desi romantic love story set in Uttar Pradesh. Ali and Shraddha have done a brilliant job. I am really looking forward to showing the film to the audience. I hope they like it."
The romantic love saga - Milan Talkies' story, screenplay, and dialogues are written by Tigmanshu Dhulia and Kamal Pandey. The film also stars Ashutosh Rana, Sanjay Mishra, Reecha Sinha and Sikander Kher.
