Mumbai: Dinesh Vijan and Bhushan Kumar had a memorable 2017 because of their movie ‘Hindi Medium’ being widely appreciated. The producers are now joining hands again to produce several other projects, their first being ‘Arjun Patiala’.
This buddy cop film set in Punjab will see the fresh jodi of Diljit Dosanjh and Kriti Sanon along with Varun Sharma (Choocha). In the film, Kriti plays a journalist while Diljit in the titular role is a quirky, small town guy. It’s a character-driven comedy with a touch of magic realism and great music. Diljit, who has an impeccable comic timing with Varun, adds to the craziness and will take us on a laugh riot.
Followed by ‘Arjun Patiala’, the makers will soon make an announcement on ‘Hindi Medium 2’ along with a bunch of many more films together.
Speaking on the association, Bhushan Kumar says, “When two like minded people join hands, it is an easy team to work with. When the people working on a project are passionate about their work and give their best it’s an easy boat to sail and when the industry appreciates this association it’s a cherry on the cake. Dinesh and his team are always conceptualizing unique content. Working on Hindi Medium together was a fruitful association. This has enabled us to want to work more and more together. Arjun Patiala is a film that will make you smile, laugh and crack up.”
On taking this association further Dinesh Vijan adds, “It’s so encouraging to get this (The Best Film award from Filmfare) because it reinforces our long standing belief at Maddock Films that taking risks will finally pay off. With Hindi Medium, it’s great to see that after the dust settles, good content has emerged a winner. Bhushan and I share a productive partnership, especially when it comes to music, and we respect each other’s capabilities. But what excites me most is Maddock’s lineup for 2018... it’s very exciting, promising and an exhilarating mix of diverse films.”
‘Arjun Patiala’ is set to release on September 13, 2018....
