We are sure many filmmakers are planning to make movies revolving around coronavirus. Eros International has also registered a title Corona Pyar Hai. And now, Fukrey franchise director Mrigdeep Singh Lamba has stated that they are planning to get a COVID-19 angle in Fukrey 3.
He told PTI, “This part too will have a strong message that people will take away and it will be delivered in a humorous way. The original story doesn’t mention it (about Covid-19). But we have been contemplating. We have discussed it. We need to be careful how we show it (Covid-19 situation) it shouldn’t seem forceful.”
“We are toying with the idea to do (something) on Covid-19 or the current situation in a humorous way. We will definitely do something about it. We will make something. We need to crack the right idea,” he added.
Talking about when the film will start rolling, Lamba said, “We had started working on it before lockdown and now we connect via phone. We have got a story in place and the writing is almost 80 per cent complete. We are working on the screenplay, which is almost done. Once things start to normalise and we have rules in place, then we will decide how and when to take it ahead. We will understand the ground reality before going on floors. The production was earlier slated to begin by October-November but nothing is certain now.”
Fukrey franchise stars Richa Chadha, Varun Sharma, Ali Fazal, Pulkit Samrat, and Manjot Singh.
