Actor Ajay Devgn and filmmaker Siddharth Roy Kapur have confirmed that they have joined hands to produce an upcoming comedy-drama film titled ‘Gobar!’. Set in the agrarian area of Northern India during the 1990s, the film is a satire inspired by real events, Variety reported.
Ajay Devgn says, “The story of GOBAR! is at once unique, relatable, and incredibly funny, as well as gripping and entertaining to the point that I’m confident it will compel people to go to the theatres. We are very clear about the impact we want to make. We want viewers to laugh, relax, perhaps think a little bit and be entertained. The standard that Siddharth observes in content creation and filmmaking makes this collaboration very exciting for us.”
Producer Siddharth Roy Kapur shares, “GOBAR! is a story that chronicles the seemingly pointless but ultimately heroic journey of a simple citizen who deals with corruption in a way that will bring on many laughs, much adventure, and ultimately a simple message about the power of the common man. What makes the film entertaining and unique is that it is a situational comedy that sheds light on the inner workings of power. To be collaborating with Ajay, someone I have always respected for his creative choices, and his team at Ajay Devgn Ffilms on bringing this film to life is very exciting.”
Director-writer Sabal Shekhawat says, “GOBAR! is a film that will take viewers back to the charming days of the 90s and the simple life of small-town living. I wrote this story keeping in mind a few true events that unravelled a gamut of issues, the centre of which is a vet whose love for his cows and animals supersedes everything. I’m grateful and happy that two esteemed producers like Ajay and Sid showed faith in my vision and offered a sizeable canvas to the storyline. Quality cinema has come from both production houses, and I’m sure that the treatment of my directorial will be no different. As a filmmaker, I’m absolutely thrilled!”
Meanwhile, Ajay is currently enjoying the success of his recently produced film The Big Bull that stars Abhishek Bachchan in the lead. Besides this, he is also shooting for his cameo in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi with Alia Bhatt. Ajay also will be seen in RRR with Jr NTR and Ram Charan. Not just this, he will be seen on the field as football coach Syed Abdul Rahim in Maidaan. The film’s shoot is underway. It is produced by Amit Sharma and produced by Boney Kapoor, Akash Chawla and Arunava Joy Sengupta.
