The film’s announcement teaser was published on Vishal Bhardwaj Films’ official Instagram page. “ना ये भौंकते हैं, ना ग़ुर्राते हैं… बस काटते हैं!
Presenting #KUTTEY! (They don’t bark, and they don’t growl. They simply bite),” the page of the production company captioned the post.
Vishal has directed critically praised films like Maqbool, Omkara, and Kaminey. Kuttey, written by Aasmaan and Vishal Bhardwaj, is described as a caper-thriller. The film is now in pre-production, with shooting set to begin in late 2021.
According to Vishal Bhardwaj, Kuttey is “very special,” because it is his first collaboration with his son. “I’m looking forward to seeing what he does with it. Luv Films and Vishal Bhardwaj Films are also collaborating for the first time, which I am very pleased about because I appreciate Luv’s bold approach to filmmaking and strong commercial sense. Throughout my career, I’ve worked with Naseer Sahab, Tabu, Konkona, and Radhika on various projects, and Aasmaan has brought them all together in one film. We can’t wait for the public to see this gripping thriller on the big screen,” he stated.
According to Luv, Vishal’s storytelling idea has been extremely motivating. “I am overjoyed that I will be working with him on Aasmaan’s film.” Vishal Bhardwaj will compose the music for the film, with Gulzar penning the lyrics.
Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series will be presenting Kuttey. The film’s producers include Vishal Bhardwaj’s wife, singer Rekha Bhardwaj, and Ankur Garg.
