Eskay Movies announced their next film Bhaijaan with Shakib Khan in the lead.
Last year Eskay Movies had released Nabab on the occasion of Eid which had Bangladehi actor Shakib Khan in the lead role. It was received quite well by its target audience specially in Bangladesh. This year too they want to encash the festive season of Eid with yet another film with Shakib Khan in the lead. The film has been titled as Bhaijaan . The film will be directed by Joydeep Mukherjee who had directed the films Shikari, Nabab and Chaalbaaj (yet to be released) earlier. Interesting thing is all those movies features Shakib Khan as the leading man. Bhaijaan will be Joydeep Mukherjee’s fourth film with Shakib.
According to the reports the film is based on a incident that had happened 28 years ago. For the first time Shakib Khan will be seen in a double role. There will be two leading ladies too opposite him, Srabanti Chatterjee and Payel Sarkar. With Srabanti , Shakib was last seen in Shikari and the pairing was much appreciated. Shakib and Payel will be paired for the first time in this film. Hopefully this fresh pairing will also get equal love from their fans. Also there will be Biswanath Basu and Rajatava Dutta in significant roles. Shooting for the film is supposed to start from March and it will release on Eid this year.
