Bollywood filmmaker and actress Pooja Bhatt, who was last seen in Rahul Bose’s film “Everybody Says I'm Fine!” in 2001, will make a comeback on the silver screen with a suspense thriller film directed by Digvijay Sisodia.
The untitled film is based on Abheek Barua's debut novel “City of Death”, in the film Pooja will be playing the role of an alcoholic cop from Kolkata, who is asked to investigate the murder of an industrialist’s daughter and nab a serial killer targeting women, with an officer, who is 10 years younger and suffering from survivor's guilt after losing his wife and children.
According to Pinkvilla, when asked about the film, Pooja said “My friend Kaustav Narayan Niyogi (director of Cabaret), recommended the book and even as I was reading it, I wanted to get back on the set to play this character. This came as an electric shock because that part of my life was no longer a priority. I called my dad (Mahesh Bhatt) to make this guilty confession and he assured me that it was a good feeling, as did my producer-partner, Sheel Kumar."
The film is slated to release by the end of 2017.
