Ranveer Singh gets on board with Shankar for Anniyan remake!

The Bollywood star is set to kickstart his Pan-India project bankrolled by veteran film producer Dr Jayantilal Gada (Pen Studios)

Ranveer Singh is all set to star in a Shankar directorial. The official adaptation of cult blockbuster Anniyan will see the actor team up with the renowned director for the first time and the project is being produced by veteran film producer Dr. Jayantilal Gada (Pen Studios). A psychological action thriller, Anniyan (2005) was also directed by Shankar and starred the South star Vikram. The Tamil film had been later dubbed in Hindi as Aparichit.

 

The ambitious entertainer is slated to go on the floors in mid-2022. It will be co-produced by God Bless Entertainment and the music of the film will be available on Saregama.

Ranveer Singh says, “I am blessed to have this opportunity to be a part of the spectacular cinematic vision of Shankar sir. He is an exception to the norm, a true disruptor who has shown us that no vision is large enough to achieve on screen. I had always hoped and dreamed that I would get a chance to collaborate with him, and I have a strong feeling that we will create magic together. To lead a film like Anniyan is a dream come true for any artiste. Vikram Sir, one of our country’s finest talents, an artiste who I hugely admire, gave a colossal performance in the original, one that can never be matched. I can only hope that my interpretation and rendition of the part also connects with audiences in the same way. It’s undoubtedly a once-in-a-lifetime performance piece, and I am ready to give this role every single ounce of my being. Shankar Sir is a genius filmmaker and a true visionary. Words don’t do justice to just how excited I am at the prospect of being directed by him.”
 
Expressing his excitement, director Shankar said, “For it to be made into a Hindi film, Anniyan needed a maverick, charismatic showman like no other to play the part. I found this in the mercurial Ranveer Singh because he is a one-in-a-generation actor who has shown us that he can immortalise a character through his stellar performance. I’m thrilled to make Anniyan for the pan-Indian audience and I’m confident that this powerful story will strike a chord in the hearts of all. In Dr. Gada, Ranveer and I have found an ideal producer who believes in the vision we have to change the nativity of content for audiences across the country.”
Talking about the Shankar-Ranveer creative coup, Dr. Jayantilal Gada, Chairman and M.D. of Pen Studios says, “Shankar and Ranveer are two forces of nature and them coming together is the biggest cinematic event in India. For us at Pen, it is an opportunity of a lifetime and we are thrilled to partner with the two powerhouses as producers and worldwide distributors of the film. We are confident that their collaboration will write a new chapter in the history of Indian cinema. We are announcing the film during a very significant time of Baisakhi and Puthandu to signify Shankar and Ranveer’s intent to make a truly pan-Indian entertainer!”

Meanwhile, Ranveer is looking ahead to the release of 83, which will be his first in 2021. The sports biopic will have wife, Bollywood star Deepika Padukone play his screen wife too!
