National award-winning filmmaker Nitesh Tiwari, known for his impactful storytelling, is set to captivate audiences with his upcoming film, Bawaal. The film, starring Varun Dhawan and Janhvi Kapoor, recently had its grand launch at the iconic Queen Elizabeth II in Dubai, creating immense anticipation among fans. The trailer, featuring intriguing references to World War II, left the audience both intrigued and curious.
In a recent interview with Galatta Plus, Tiwari shed light on his choice of incorporating World War II instead of India’s historical wars. He expressed his desire to offer something fresh and unique to the audience, both in terms of storytelling and visuals. While it would have been easy to include India’s historical conflicts, Tiwari believed that the nation’s renowned filmmakers had already explored these subjects extensively, leaving him unsure of bringing something truly new to the screen.
Interestingly, Tiwari revealed that he had initially included a reference to the tragic Jallianwala Bagh massacre in one of the earlier drafts of the film. However, after the release of Sardar Udham, a film that touched upon the same topic, he decided to remove the reference to maintain a sense of freshness. This decision showcases Tiwari’s commitment to providing an innovative cinematic experience to his audience.
As fans eagerly await the premiere of Bawaal on Prime Video, it promises to deliver a timeless love story brought to life through the collaboration of Sajid Nadiadwala’s production banner, Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, and the creative prowess of Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari and Nitesh Tiwari’s Earthsky Pictures. With its unique approach to historical references and Tiwari’s knack for storytelling, Bawaal is poised to captivate audiences across 200 countries and territories worldwide when it releases on July 21.
