Actress Tamannaah Bhatia will be seen starring in filmmaker Madhur Bahndarkar’s upcoming movie ‘Babli Bouncer’, a coming-of-age fictional story of a female bouncer, set in the real ‘bouncer town’ of North India — Asola Fatepur.

Sharing her thoughts on kick-starting the shoot, Bhatia said: “As soon as I read ‘Babli Bouncer’, I fell in love with the character because it is one of the most exciting and fun characters with substance that I have come across.”

She added: “Madhur Sir has a flair for crafting defining female protagonists and Babli too is such a powerful character. For the first time, a film will explore the story of a female bouncer, and I am more than excited to be her voice. I can’t wait to dive into this whole new world.”

Bhandarkar, who has directed hits such as ‘Fashion’ and ‘Corporate’, shared: “As a filmmaker, there is a lot to be excited for and look forward to, when you get the chance to explore a never-before-told narrative. I want to portray this story of a female bouncer through a slice-of-life comedic tone that also leaves a lasting impact.”

He shared that with the shooting of ‘Babli Bouncer’ starting today, he is ready as ever to bring forth this story from the world view of women bouncers.

The movie will be released at the end of this year in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
