Saand Ki Aankh first look: Taapsee, Bhumi play world oldest sharpshooters

The first look of Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar’s upcoming film, Saand Ki Aankh is out and features them as 60-year-old ghagra-clad shooters. The film is based on the life of real-life shooters Chandro Tomar and her sister-in-law Prakashi Tomar from Uttar Pradesh, who are better known as ‘shooter dadis’.

In the poster, we see Taapsee and Bhumi in the rural and grey avatar with the backdrop of a farm and posing with a gun with huge smiles on their faces. The first look picture clearly indicates that both the actors have gone through an amazing transformation to play their respective characters. The poster has an interesting tagline, which reads, 'Tann Budha Hota Hai, Mann Budha Nai Hota'.

Bhumi shared the first look on her Instagram account along with the caption, “Make way for the Dadis. Bringing to you one of my most challenging roles in one of the most inspiring stories...#SaandKiAankhThisDiwali.” Taapsee shared the same picture with the caption, “They challenged their age, fought their way and shot to fame in the shooting game.” The two actors are dressed in shirts and ghagras with their heads covered with dupattas and aiming with pistols while standing on a heap of sand alongside a farm.

The fans were happy to see the actors in such drastic avatars. A user commented, “Wow look at u two so realistic.” Another commented, “Woohooo... What an epic look.. Can’t wait for the trailer..”

Directed by debutante Tushar Hiranandani, the film is based on two octogenarian sharpshooters Chandro, 87, and Prakashi, 82, who are from Uttar Pradesh's Johri village and reportedly took up sharpshooting in their 50s. Chandro, who is fondly called shooter 'dadi' is among the world's oldest female sharpshooters. Reliance Entertainment is producing Saand Ki Aankh along with Anurag Kashyap and Nidhi Parmar of Chalk n Cheese Films. The film also stars Prakash Jha and Vicky Kadian in key roles.
