Adivi Sesh, Shruti Haasan's pan-India movie is titled 'Dacoit'

Mumbai: Actors Adivi Sesh and Shruti Haasan’s upcoming pan-India action drama has been titled ‘Dacoit’, the makers announced on Wednesday.

The film, which is being shot simultaneously in Hindi and Telugu, is produced by Supriya Yarlagadda and presented by Annapurna Studios. It is co-produced by Suniel Narang.

The project marks the feature directorial debut of Shaneil Deo, who has previously served as the director of photography for several Telugu blockbusters such as “Kshanam” and “Goodachari”, both headlined by Sesh.

‘Dacoit’ is billed as a gripping story of two former lovers, who must unite to commit a series of robberies to change their lives.

Deo and Sesh have also penned the film’s story and screenplay, the makers said in a press release.

‘Shaneil Deo has an absolutely fantastic vision. It’s grand without being grandiose and elegant without being uppity. That sort of an elegant eye coupled with a very rustic nature of the script and the characters set in the hinterlands of silent India, its villages and towns make for an explosive, angry combustion that is this film. I think ‘Dacoit’ is going to explode in people’s hearts,’ Sesh said.

Deo described ‘Dacoit’ as an ‘intense action drama with a beating heart’.

‘The story of the film demanded a canvas like this, which is rooted, gritty yet well mounted and stylish. Our teaser is merely a tiny glimpse of the massive world we have in store for the fans. It is my honour to direct Adivi and Shruti, two of the finest stars of our times. It is going to be an incredible collaboration,’ the filmmaker added.

Haasan said ‘Dacoit’ is a ‘rare story’, which is filled with anger, passion and elegance. ‘I’m truly excited to be a part of ‘Dacoit’,’ she added.
