Irrfan and Nishikant Kamat come together for Madaari

Having produced both box office hits and critically-acclaimed films like Tanu Weds Manu and Shahid, Shailesh Singh is on a roll.

He has managed to get two very talented people together again for Green Light Entertainment, Dore Films and Saptarishi Cinevision Productions' Madaari that is being presented by Bharat Shah. Irrfan will be essaying the lead role in this film, which will be directed by Nishikant Kamat

The last time this actor-director duo worked together was on Mumbai Meri Jaan, a film that not only went on to win notices, but also set a perfect chemistry between the actor and director. Ask Irrfan his views on working with Nishikant, and he says, "During Mumbai Meri Jaan, I developed a deep bond with Nishikant.

Since then, I've been eagerly awaiting for an opportunity to work with him. Hence, when a good subject like Madaari came up, I instantly agreed." Nishikant adds, "Irrfan and my association goes back a long way; we actually did TV together first. Post Mumbai Meri Jaan, we had to wait for the right script to work with each other again. Apart from being a friend, he is a legendary actor and I have definitely learnt a lot from him."

Shot across the length and breadth of India — Mumbai, Shimla, Dehradun, Delhi, Jaisalmer and Hyderabad, among other places — this Irrfan-Nishikant film is a hard-hitting social thriller, with a strong emotional connect. It also stars Jimmy Sheirgill and has an enviable ensemble cast.

Shailesh Singh, who apart from being a producer on Madaari is also co-producing Hansal Mehta's next, Aligarh, says, "It's exciting that we have two talented individuals coming together for Madaari. We had a blast shooting the film and full credit goes to my co-producers Irrfan, Shelija Kejriwal, Sandeep Singh and Anil Patil. We'll commence post production shortly and are aiming for a July-August 2015 release."
