Gulmohar, a film produced by Fox Star Studios, Chalkboard Entertainment, and Autonomous Works, will be released in August 2022. The film’s outstanding cast includes numerous National Award-winning actors Manoj Bajpayee, Sharmila Tagore, and Amol Palekar, as well as Suraj Sharma (Life of Pi) and Simran Rishi Bagga in crucial roles, and is directed by Azaad filmmaker Rahul Chittella. Siddhartha Khosla composed the film’s original score (This is Us). Gulmohar is a poignant family drama that follows the multi-generational Batra family as they prepare to leave their 34-year-old family home. While coping with personal secrets and concerns, this moving out causes a re-discovery of the relationships that have brought them together as a family.
“I am really glad to be back in the familiar and well-loved environment of a film set after a significant hiatus,” Sharmila Tagore said of being a part of Gulmohar. After hearing the poignant narration of this heartwarming and well written story/script, I accepted almost instantly to join Team Gulmohar. It’s a complex and compelling family drama. And I’m sure many people will appreciate seeing it in the comfort of their own homes with their loved ones.
There were many numerous reason for me to sign the film,” Manoj Bajpayee said. “First and foremost, the narrative of the film was extremely candid and relatable.” Second, it was such an honour to share screen time with Sharmila ji, and above all, Rahul always came across as an educated talent and a guy of integrity! What else could I want? I hope the audience enjoys it as much as I have enjoyed being a part of it.”
When asked about his choice of plot and characters, director Rahul Chittella remarked, “Gulmohar is a touching tale about family and home, the only two things that have ever mattered, and which matter now more than ever. I’m thrilled to be wrapping production with such a fantastic cast and team, all of whom are working together with the highest integrity to convey this tale! We are so excited to show it to the public soon!!”
“We have always been attracted to themes that are creative and unusual and have the potential to inspire as well as engage our audiences,” said Bikram Duggal, Head of Studios at Disney Star. Gulmohar is one such story that we hope would strike a chord with Indian audiences. We’re thrilled to be working on this project with Rahul Chitella, Chalkboard, and Autonomous Works, as well as such a talented ensemble, to bring this amazing film to our fans.”
Coming from a large family, the Gulmohar family seemed very familiar and near to my heart. When I initially read the script, it resonated with me. We were so pleased to begin this project, and what a wonderful ride it has been! This initiative is really meaningful to Rahul and us. We are grateful to the Disney Star team for entrusting us with this project. It’s great to have so many talented folks on board. Such brilliant minds and a pleasant crew make for a great match! This connection to Gulmohar gives us such a warm feeling. I’m overjoyed to see the story come to life!” Chalkboard Entertainment producer Vikesh Bhutani stated.
