The film is based on the UP-based octogenarian sharpshooters Chandro and Prakashi Tomar.
Chandro, 87, and Prakashi, 82, are from Uttar Pradesh’s Johri village and reportedly took up sharpshooting in their 50s. Chandro, who is fondly called as ‘shooter dadi’, is among the world’s oldest female sharpshooters.
The film will be directed by Tushar Hiranandani who is a writer making his directorial debut and produced by Reliance Entertainment, Anurag Kashyap, and Nidhi Parmar.
