Pataakha is a comedy drama about two sisters, Badki and Chhutki, who grow up in a small village in Rajasthan and are constantly at war. But when marriage separates them, they realise they cannot seem to live with or without each other.
The director, whose films "Haider" and "Talvar" released on October 2, said they decided on September 28 as the week has been lucky for him.
The film is produced by Ajay Kapoor, who wanted to collaborate with Bhardwaj for a long time.
"He's a big brand and I love his cinema. And when I heard the script from him, I fell in love with it. This is different genre," Kapoor said.
Bhardwaj, who is known for his interpretation of Shakespeare's tragedies -- "Maqbool", "Omkara" and "Haider" and Ruskin Bond's stories for "Blue Umbrella" and "7 Khoon Maaf", has adapted renowned writer Charan Singh Pathik's short story for "Pataakha".
