Bollywood director and producer Madhur Bhandarkar recently talked about why he chose to make a comedy film like Babli Bouncer.

“I am a very humorous person in real life. It’s just that after ‘Chandni Bar’, people assumed that I love to do dark cinema. But when i got ‘Babli Bouncer’, I wanted to make a comedy, slice of life film,” Bhandarkar said talking about the project.

“I felt I wanted to showcase a world of bouncers. It’s an interesting world and how these people come from their villages. On top of that, after the first pandemic hit us so badly, I felt we really need a comedy film that people can watch with their family,” he added.

Produced by Star Studios and Junglee Pictures, ‘Babli Bouncer’ stars Tamannaah Bhatia, in the lead along with Saurabh Shukla, Abhishek Bajaj and Sahil Vaid in pivotal roles.

The film is all set to stream exclusively on Disney+ Hotstar from September 23, 2022, in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.

‘Babli Bouncer’ is touted as a coming-of-age feel-good story with a slice-of-life comedic tone set in the real ‘bouncer town’ of North India – Asola Fatepur.

It will see Tamannaah Bhatia in a never seen before avatar, as Babli Bouncer.

“Babli Bouncer for me is not just a film but an experience of a lifetime which I’ll cherish forever. This film started off with an extremely well written and author backed character, which had everything that would be the right kind of meat for an actor to go all the way and give,” Bhatia tweeted.

Bhandarkar is known for films like ‘Chandani Bar’, ‘Fashion’, ‘Herione’, ‘Page 3’, ‘Calendar Girls’, ‘Traffic Signal’ and ‘Corporate’.

The director has so far received three national awards in his career for ‘Page 3’, ‘Traffic Signal’ and ‘Chandani Bar’.

Bhandarkar announced a film during the pandemic ‘India Lockdown’ which stars Prateik Babbar, Aahana Kumra and Shweta Basu Prasad in the lead roles.

Previously, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) had asked for 12 cuts despite an ‘A’ certificate in his film.
