Priyanka Chopra’s Marathi production ‘Firebrand’ goes on floors
After producing the National Award and commercially successful Marathi films – Ventilator last year, Priyanka Chopra and Dr Madhu Chopra’s production House, Purple Pebble Pictures is back with their next project, Firebrand, to be helmed by National Award-winning writer and director Arunaraje.
Living up to the interesting title of the film, the drama that goes on floors today features veteran actors from the Marathi industry including Usha Jadhav, Girish Kulkarni, Sachin Khedekar and Rajeshwari Sachdev.
While Usha Jadhav plays a successful lawyer Sunanda Raut, Girish Kulkarni essays the role of her husband Madhav Patkar, an architect by profession. Sachin Khedekar and Rajeshwari Sachdev play a couple in the movie which is high on drama.
Dr Madhu Chopra adds, “The general acceptance from the family audience for Ventilator has once again reinstated my faith in backing scripts with high emotional values, interesting characters and are entertaining at the same time.”
Arunaraje says, "Firebrand is a contemporary story about relationships and the highs and lows people deal with in their lives. I am glad that Priyanka Chopra and Dr Madhu Chopra are focussing on regional cinema and backing unusual and good subjects in an endeavour to create meaningful cinema."
Produced by Purple Pebble Pictures, Firebrand is written & directed by Arunaraje.
