After its screening at the Berlin Film Festival, Ritesh Batra's romantic-drama Photograph is all set to release on March 15 in the country. Starring Nawazuddin Siddique and Sanya Malhotra in the lead roles, the makers took to their social media sharing a poster along with the new release date. Set in Mumbai, the film chronicles the story of a struggling photographer, played by Nawazuddin, who, under the pressure of his grandmother to get married, convinces an introverted stranger (Malhotra) to pose as his fiancée.
Photograph marks the reunion of Batra and Nawazuddin after their successful collaboration in The Lunchbox. The film also premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Written and directed by Batra, Photograph is presented by Amazon Studious in association with The Match Factory.
On a related note, Nawaz, who was last seen in Thackeray, will soon start shooting for Bole Chudiyan, in which he will reportedly romance Shraddha Kapoor. He will also be seen in Motichoor and Sacred Games 2.
On the other hand, Sanya had a successful 2018. Both of her films- Pataakha and Badhaai Ho got rave reviews from fans and critics alike.
