After making movies like "Khosla Ka Ghosla" and "Oye Lucky Lucky Oye", Dibakar Banerjee, the director of the movie, has left no stones unturned to ensure that the movie surpasses all criticisms and becomes the blockbuster of the year.
Based on the movie "Z" which was released in the year 1969, "Shanghai" is a story on the corruption level which persists in the Indian Political system.
Abhay Deol, who will be working with Banerjee for the second time, said “Dibakar is one of the finest directors. I had the opportunity to work with him in "Oye Lucky Lucky Oye". I love the way he creates his own world through his scripts. He has a brilliant way of telling stories”.
Dibakar couldn’t be happier with his work , “Frankly I have been stunned by the performances from our stars and our character artists. I can safely say that all preconceived notions that people have about both Abhay and Emraan are going to be shattered by this movie.”
He is confident that with the story line and the brilliant performance, "Shanghai" will be his best movie yet. Also seen in pivotal roles are actress Kalki Koechlin and Bengali actor Prosenjit.
The reactions of the fans and the critics will tell us if this is Dibakar’s best work by far. "Shanghai" is slated to release on 8th June, 2012.
