Sujoy Ghosh and Jayantilal Gada gearing up for ‘Badla’ release

Some creative partnerships stand the test of time. The bond between Jayantilal Gada’s PEN India and filmmaker Sujoy Ghosh is only getting stronger by the day. While PEN was earlier associated with Ghosh as producers of the Vidya Balan-starrer films ‘Kahaani’ and ‘Kahaani 2’, they are now set to distribute the upcoming film, ‘Badla’, too. The movie, which stars Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu in the lead roles, is set to hit the screens on March 8.

PEN India will distribute the film under the banner of PEN MARUDHAR CINE ENTERTAINMENT. PEN India and Marudhar had announced a merger recently, as well. Talking about his association with Sujoy, Gada says, “Sujoy Ghosh is one of the biggest filmmakers in our country and he’s known for helming movies with strong content. I have always considered content as the prime reason for associating with any project. I am glad that after producing ‘Kahaani’ and ‘Kahaani 2’ that were directed by Sujoy, too, we will be distributing ‘Badla’. I’m certain that the film will be as impressive as his earlier works.”
