They just bite," the filmmaker, who has helmed acclaimed movies like Maqbool, Omkara, and Kaminey, wrote. Written by Aasmaan and Vishal, Kuttey has been pegged as a caper-thriller.
The film is currently in its pre-production stage and will commence shooting at the end of 2021. Aasmaan has completed his bachelors in filmmaking at the School Of Visual Arts, NYC and has assisted his father on 7 Khoon Maaf, Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola and Pataakha. Vishal described Kuttey as "extremely special" as it marks his first collaboration with his son.
"I'm excited to see what he does with it. Luv Films and Vishal Bhardwaj Films are coming together for the first time and I am immensely excited about this association, as I really admire Luv's brave attitude toward filmmaking and strong commercial sense," Vishal said.
"I've worked with Naseer Sahab, Tabu, Konkona, and Radhika on different films throughout my career and Aasmaan has brought them all together in one film itself. We cannot wait for the audience to witness this captivating thriller on the big screen," he said. Kuttey will be presented by Bhushan Kumar's T-Series. The film's music will be scored by Vishal with lyrics penned by Gulzar.
