Anurag has recently finished the shoot of his Punjabi superhero film Super Singh starring Diljit Dosanjh which will release somewhere in June 2017.
Tentatively titled as ‘Hanumaan’, this film’s team has yet to freeze the lead actors, but few names are currently in consideration.
Talking to Pune Mirror, Anurag said, “It’s a superhero film that marries mythology with modern technology. Without delving into ancient concepts, we’re re-inventing the morals he stands for,” explains Anurag who met Priti Shahani, President, Junglee Pictures two years ago and sketched out the idea to her in one line. “She called the concept a “clutter-breaker” and though we discussed other ideas, she kept coming back to this one. Now, it’s like we are both realising our dream,” he recalls.
Would the Hanuman bhakts be agitated by the seeing a love-interest for this Brahmachari bhakt of Ram??
They will be the biggest fans of his film.
“I’m not questioning the legend of Hanuman, rather like any devotee, I’m appreciative of him. The tone will be reverential, just as it is in animation shows for children like Chhota Bheem, Bal Ganesh and Bal Hanuman, but the film’s scale is huge,” he clarifies, adding that the protagonist Hanu-maan, is a fun guy with mischievous powers, drawn from Hanuman’s energy, wisdom and devotion.
Anurag even clarified that the film, at no point, will question the legend of Hanuman and the tone of this project will be reverential, similar to Chhota Bheem, Bal Ganesh or Bal Hanuman, the film’s scale is huge!
