Producer and director Kiran Rao, who began her movie journey as one of the assistants on the sets of the iconic movie ‘Lagaan’, is ready to return to direction after over a decade since her directorial debut in ‘Dhobi Ghat’.
Her forthcoming feature film is titled ‘Laapataa Ladies’.
Although the makers were tight-lipped about the tale, the movie is set in 2001, someplace in rural India. It follows the mess that ensues when young brides get lost from a train. The main cast of the movie includes Sparsh Shrivastava, Ravi Kishan, and Chhaya Kadam. In addition, it’s going to introduce new actresses who portray the brides. The makers have refrained from uncovering the names of the actresses.
The first teaser of ‘Laapataa Ladies’ will be dropped alongside Aamir Khan’s ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ in theatres worldwide on August 11.
‘Laapataa Ladies’ has been jointly produced by Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao.
While the movie has been made under the banner of Aamir Khan Productions and Kindling Productions, the script is based on a story by Biplab Goswami.
The screenplay & dialogue is written by Sneha Desai, and additional dialogues are written by Divyanidhi Sharma.
In the meantime, Aamir Khan will be reuniting with Kareena Kapoor Khan for ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ and is set to release on August 11.
