Trailer: ‘Calendar Girls’ has shocking revelations - Madhur


Madhur Bhandarkar’s ‘Calendar Girls’ is finally out with its official trailer. The film’s teaser introduced the five leading ladies and the trailer gives an insight of each of the calendar girls and a glimpse of their backgrounds.

The trailer introduces five aspiring models from different culture – Paroma Ghosal from Kolkata, Nazneen Malik from Lahore, Pakistan, Nandita Menon from Hyderabad, Sharon Pinto from Goa and Mayuri Chauhan from Rohtak. All have one common dream of becoming a famous calendar girl.

Speaking at the trailer launch on Tuesday, August 18, Madhur said, “The movie is 75 per cent reality and 25 per cent fiction. There will be a lot of revelations made and things shown that will shock you. Finally, it is an emotional story that will connect with viewers. It’s a story about hope.”

The trailer also shows the connection between the modelling and the cricket world. “I have picked up things from newspapers… Issues that go around us. Films are reflection of society. I am not being judgemental,” the ‘Fashion’ director said.

“We have taken inspiration from a lot of people like Vijay Mallya… Who launches calendar every year. I share good relationship with him. Deepika (Padukone) who herself was a calender girl,” Madhur was quoted by The Indian Express.

Newcomers Avani Modi, Satarupa Pyne, Kyra Dutt, Akanksha Puri and Ruhi Singh are making their Bollywood debut with this film. Produced by Sangeeta Ahir and Bhandarkar Entertainment, ‘Calendar Girls’ is set to hit theatres on September 25.
