Riding high on the success of three 100cr Blockbusters (Jolly LLB2, Badrinath Ki Dulhania and Judwaa 2) in 2017, Fox Star Studios has signed on Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari to direct a movie based on Kabaddi. The game Kabaddi, which had lost out on its followers, has seen a massive jump in the last few years through Pro Kabaddi League tournament. Now Fox Star Studios is all set to take a leap ahead to present the game on the silver screen.
Ashwiny made her debut with a comedy drama Nil Battey Sannata which garnered critical acclaim and her recent outing Bareilly Ki Barfi, a rom-com was a surprise hit of 2017. With Ashwini now on board as the director, it will be interesting to watch out how a story on the sport that was long forgotten, shapes up with her quintessential touch.
Ashwini Iyer Tiwari, writer and director, says “My quest for telling with stories of life from the heart found a partner in likeminded Rucha and her team from Fox Star Studios. I am totally thrilled to direct another story which will be close to my heart. The collaboration with Fox Star Studios is a beginning of a long fruitful journey which we all are looking forward. To tell different stories for an audience who has an urge to watch rich content in cinema.”
