Watch: Juhi Chawla, Shabana Azmi in ‘Chalk N Duster’ trailer


Education has become a business now. Now-a-days hardly one cares for imparting quality education. Schools and other higher education institutions have become an important source of earning money. In the process of making profit, the value of education has lost. The new film, ‘Chalk N Duster’ starring Juhi Chawla and Shabana Azmi is based on this very subject.

‘Chalk N Duster’ is based on the emotional journey of two teachers Vidya (Shabana Azmi) and Jyoti (Juhi Chawla) from a school in Mumbai Metro city. These two strongly bonded over the thought that there is nothing above quality education. They get well with their students and the students too love them. But the good days wiped out when the school authorities injected politics in the premises and spoiled the atmosphere of the school by bringing politics in the campus. A sly principal Kamini played by Divya Dutta replaced the experienced teachers with fresher’s, thereby affecting the quality of teaching.

Vidya (Shabana Azmi) and Jyothi (Juhi Chawla) fight against this foul play and management decision.

Apart from Shabana Azmi, Juhi Chawla, Divya Dutta, the film also features Upasna Singh, Girish Karnad, Zarina Wahab, Aarya Babbar, Samir Soni and Adi Irani with special appearances by Rishi Kapoor, Jackie Shroff and Richa Chaddha.

Directed Jayant Gilatar and produced by Amin Surani, this film is being directed by Jayant Gilatar and is produced by Amin Surani. Hollywood production house Sony Pictures produced ‘Chalk N Duster’. Their last release was ‘Saawariya’ in 2007.
