Sony Pictures Networks Productions announces ‘Poster Boys’ featuring Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol and Shreyas Talpade
~ Directed by Shreyas Talpade Poster Boys is the official remake of a Marathi film by the same name ~
Sony Pictures Networks Productions (formerly MSM Motion Pictures), a division of Sony Pictures Networks India Pvt. Ltd. (SPN), announced their next film on The Kapil Sharma Show. The studio that brought you Piku, will now bring to the audiences another content driven film, Poster Boys.
The film stars Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol and Shreyas Talpade playing 3 central characters whose lives turn upside-down after a big blunder. They find themselves stuck in an awkward situation, so complicated that they find it difficult to explain even to their own families. This light-hearted drama will see the trio dealing with unforeseen circumstances, essaying roles that they have never done before in their lives. Also for the first time, Sunny and Bobby will not be seen as brothers on-screen.
While Kapil’s show is often a preferred platform for movie promotions around the release, the studio took an innovative route to announce their next on the sets of this show.
Poster Boys (in Marathi) was a winner at the box office and was one of the biggest openers of Marathi cinema in 2014. The original film was produced by Shreyas Talpade in which he had powerful cameo. With the official remake of Poster Boys he also makes his directorial debut.
Poster Boys is produced by Sony Pictures Networks Productions, Sunny Sounds Pvt Ltd and Affluence Movies Pvt Ltd.
Sneha Rajani, Dy President & Head, Sony Pictures Networks Productions
As a studio, we believe in content- driven stories that will be loved by the audiences. Poster Boys is one such film. I am confident that Shreyas in his directorial debut will do justice to this outstanding script. The biggest highlight is the casting of this film as both, Sunny and Bobby are playing roles which is a first for them in their respective careers.
Sunny Deol, Actor, Producer
“We loved the concept of Poster Boys when Shreyas shared the script with us. I have known Shreyas for a while now and relate to his sensibilities. The way he is bringing the character and story alive is very engaging. This film is just a beginning of our association with Sony Pictures Networks Productions and I am sure that it will go a long way forward.”
Shreyas Talpade, Director, Actor
“I am not sure if I had thought I would ever direct and not in my wildest dreams did I think that in my directorial debut I would be directing a legend, Sunny Deol, who I grew up watching. This shift is very exciting and I am overwhelmed with the fact that Sony Pictures Networks Productions and Sunny Sounds Pvt LTD have shown this faith in me.”
