Arjun Kapoor took to Instagram and shared the announcement.
He captioned his post, “Usher in the New Year with Kuttey, releasing in cinemas on 13th January, 2023.” The announcement read, “Kuttey will release in cinemas on January 13, 2023. The film stars Arjun Kapoor, Tabu, Naseeruddin Shah, Konkona Sensharma, Kumud Mishra, Radhika Madan and Shardul Bhardwaj. Kuttey is directed by Aasman Bhardwaj, presented by Gulshan Kumar and Bhushan Kumar’s T-series and produced by Luv Ranjan, Vishal Bhardwaj, Ankur Garg and Rekha Bhardwaj.”
The film is a thriller and marks the directorial debut of Vishal Bhardwaj’s son Aasmaan Bhardwaj. He has also co-written the screenplay with Vishal Bhardwaj, who has also composed music for the film. Vishal Bhardwaj’s frequent collaborator Gulzar has penned the lyrics. The movie also stars Radhika Madan, Kumud Mishra and Shardul Bhardwaj.
Earlier in a chat with Mid-day, Arjun Kapoor had revealed what made him say yes to the project. “When Vishalji and Aasmaan narrated the film, what drew me was that he wasn’t trying to ape his father. There is reminiscence of the learnings he has had from his dad. The father-son have overlapping qualities. Vishalji has been an involved producer,” he told Mid-Day.
He also praised Vishal Bhardwaj and said, “I was close to working with him in the past, but it didn’t work out. His energy and atmospheric storytelling is inspirational. When you are surrounded by such people, you aspire to chase quality and not just commerce. Vishalji is a great listener who allows a discussion and takes your inputs. He doesn’t have a chip on his shoulder.”
