'Baap' first-look: Mithun, Sunny, Jackie, Sanjay collaborate in epic actioner
The first look of Baap directed by Vivek Chauhan was released on Wednesday by the makers on their social media. It stars veterans Mithun Chakraborty, Sunny Deol, Sanjay Dutt, and Jackie Shroff. The actors are donning their signature rugged gangster looks and this is touted to be an action entertainer. This film's look surely promises us to take back to the '80s.
Why does this story matter?
- The leads ruled the screens and the hearts of the fans back in the 1980s. This quartet has National Award-winning performances and commercial blockbusters, hence a good balance to cater to viewers across the spectrum.
- The '80s films had a distinct style and even though all were not critically acclaimed, they ended up gaining cult status over the years.
'Baap' of all looks! Here's how the four looked
The Disco Dancer actor is seen in a tilted army cap, leather jacket, and denim, whereas the Gadar actor is in all khaki, long hair, beard, and bandana. The Rocky actor is seen in his early '00s avatar—short hair, french-cut beard, and leather jacket. Lastly, the Parinda actor donned his trademark look—a military camouflaged jacket, an undershirt, and a headband.
All we know about upcoming venture
Sharing the photograph on Twitter, Jackie Shroff wrote, "Shoot dhamaal, dosti (friendship) bemisaal." The quartet is seen seated on the stairs. This film will mark director Vivek Chauhan's debut. He has earlier worked as an assistant director in Highway and Tanu Weds Manu: Returns. The venture is bankrolled by Zee Studios, Ahmed Khan, and his wife Shaira Ahmed Khan.
