As reported by Bollywood Hungama, a source close to the movie said, “It is a coming-of-age feel good story with a slice-of-life comedic tone. Set in the real ‘bouncer town’ of North India – Asola Fatepur, it will see Tamannaah Bhatia in a never seen before avatar since she is playing the role of a bouncer for the first time.”
Earlier in an interview with ABP News, Tamannah spoke about her character in this upcoming movie and said, “Babli Bouncer for me is not just a film but an experience of a lifetime which I’ll cherish forever. This film started off with an extremely well written and author- backed character, which had everything that would be the right kind of meat for an actor to go all the way and give everything that they have, to create a world and character which could make way into the hearts of audience, and that’s exactly what I tried to do with the character of Babli.”
Junglee Pictures and Star Studios have announced the release date of the movie, which is slated for September 22, 2022. The movie has been directed by Madhur Bhandarkar and along with Tamannah Bhatia, who plays the lead, the movie also stars Abhishek Bajaj, Saurabh Shukla and Sahil Vaid in important roles.
‘Babli Bouncer’ is skipping theatrical release and will directly release on Disney+ Hotstar in Hindi, Telugu and Tamil languages.
