Priyanka informed her fans about her trip through Twitter. She wrote, “Delhi bound... Let's go take the capital by storm... The 'Gunday' on their way.”
The movie is directed by Ali Abbas Zafar and is produced by Aditya Chopra. The movie is set in 1970’s. The movie is an action cum thriller movie. Apart from the three lead actors, Irrfan Khan also appears in a prominent role in this movie.
The movie is about two small time goons Bikram and Bala who cross Bangladesh border and come to India. The young goons turn into famous bandits of Calcutta. Priyanka Chopra plays the role of cabaret dancer and is the love interest of the two lead actors. The music of the movie is given by Anu Malik.
The film will also release in Bengali with all Bengali soundtracks. This is the first Indian movie to have its trailer premiere at the Dubai International Film festival.
Director Ali Abbas is happy to have associated with YRF once again after ‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’. “I sat in Yashji's (late Yash Chopra) room and gave him a three-hour narration about the subject of ‘Gunday’”, reveals Ali, “At the end of it, all that Yashji said was that, 'You will be doing my film.’ And we have dedicated this film to him. Yashji did do 'Kaala Patthar' based on coal mines and I was quite inspired by it.”
The movie revolves around the backdrop of coal mining black market.
Talking about the difficulty that Ali faced during filming of the movie, he says, “We shot at Raniganj which has many coal-mines. The temperature was about 44 degrees and it would be all hot and sweaty. Once we also had a bout of rain when we were filming! We had a cast and crew of about 200 people. Arjun and Ranveer, will be seen running in GUNDAY, from the time they're kids till they grow up and up to the very end. There were all kinds of natural barriers that we faced during the shooting of GUNDAY. Coal is called the black gold and in the sunlight it would bounce off light during the shoot. But I give full credit to my cast and crew for co-operating with me and making it all seem so effortless!”
