In a surprising twist for Bollywood enthusiasts, Anees Bazmee, the maestro behind hits like No Entry, Singh Is Kinng, Welcome, and Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, has gracefully exited Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s much-talked-about movie, Section 108. While the tinsel town buzzes with speculations, the exact reason for this dramatic step-back remains shrouded in mystery.
All was not tense though. Our industry insiders whisper that Bazmee had a heartfelt conversation with the movie’s producers, ensuring an amicable parting. Bollywood was keenly looking forward to this film as it hinted at Bazmee’s much-anticipated return to thrillers after his 11-year break since the gripping Deewangee.
However, the show must go on. With director Rasikh Khan at the helm, Section 108 kicked off on October 13 and has already wrapped up its initial schedule. The movie-goers can brace themselves for a February 2024 release. The plot, revolving around a soon-to-be-declared-dead missing billionaire, promises chills and thrills. While Nawazuddin Siddiqui is all set to captivate as a sharp lawyer, Regina Cassandra is prepped up for her role as a dedicated insurance investigating officer. Drawing its title from the Indian Evidence Act 1872’s Section 108, the film delves deep into the nuances of the law and the drama around it.
