Madhur Bhandarkar is known for narrating real life stories on the silver screen. The filmmaker has churned out box office hits with films inspired from true stories and today marks 14 years of his National Award winning movie ‘Traffic Signal’. Sharing rare photos from the sets, Madhur Bhandarkar wrote, “National Award film #TrafficSignal today completes 14 year. Thanks to @ShailendraS7 and all my Actors & technicians to put the hard work for such a remarkable film.”
‘Traffic Signal’ hit the screens in 2007 and featured Kunal Khemu, Neetu Chandra, Ranvir Shorey and Konkona Sen Sharma in the lead. The movie focused on the life of those living around a traffic signal in Mumbai.
Madhur Bhandarkar recently announced his next titled, ‘India Lockdown’ which will capture the consequence of the lockdown. He had told BT, “The film is inspired by true events and is set around the first two months of the lockdown (March-April 2020). It has multiple tracks running simultaneously, which revolve around migrant workers, sex workers, businessmen and lonely people. It will essentially deal with poverty and isolation. All of us were holed up in our homes, and for the first few months, we didn’t know what to do with our lives. We were not accustomed to this life. Through the film, I will try to understand what helped us survive.” ‘India Lockdown’ will feature Prateik Babbar, Aahana Kumra, Shweta Basu Prasad and Sai Tamhankar in lead roles.
