Hyderabad: Covid- 19 pandemic upended the entertainment industry, forcing theatres to shut for about eight months to contain the spread of the virus while pushing all the
money spinners and ready to release titles of 2020 to resort to sundry OTT platforms. Now with theatres re-opening, Bolo Hau is slated to hit the big screens on 15 th January 2020. The trailer of the film was released digitally and has been well received by movie goers.
A frothy love story set in Hyderabad, Bolo Hau will see editor turned actor Jahnavi Dhanrajgir making her on screen debut. Ankit Rathi who has played a substantial role in Farhan Akhtar produced 3 storeys and earlier in Singham 2 and Fukrey, plays the male lead in Bolo Hau. Jahnavi on the other hand has been an assistant editor on superhit Bollywood films like Gunday and Kick and worked as an assistant director on Sultan prior to her acting debut.
Directed by Tarun Dhanragir who had played the role of Darcy in the Indian remake of Pride and Prejudice which was aired on Doordarshan in 1985 and featured in other prominent soaps of the
era, Bolo Hau, is a frothy romantic comedy that seamlessly turns into an intense drama. Speaking about Bolo Hau, Director Tarun Dhanrajgir said “It is a unique time to embark on a theatrical release. While I understand it is an uphill task given the pandemic and its impact on showbiz but I’m always up for a good challenge. We need to get jo back in our lives and I believe Bolo Hau is my effort in that direction. Interestingly, the film is becoming ‘a first’ on many instances- it’s my daughter, Jahnavi’s debut. This is also the first film for my banner, Dhanrajgir Productions and one of the first Hindi releases of 2021. I hope this film encourages our movie business to open up gradually and go back to its original glory”.
Adding to Tarun’s senitments, Producer M.A Rasheed stated, “I absolutely agree with Tarun on making an effort to lead a joyous life, I understand there are restrictions and we have to take
precautions every step of the way but must not give up hope and strive to bring our lives back in order. I have known Tarun for a very long time and have been an associate in many of his
endeavours. I have always approached cinema as an audience and I believe which is why he trusts my instincts. Bolo Hau has shaped up as a full-fledged family entertainer and I urge Hyderabad to step out and watch it in the theatres following all Covid-19 precautionary measures. We have taken our steps towards bettering lives, now it is upto the audiences”.
Produced by Dhanrajgir Productions (Tarun Dhanrajgir & M.A. Rasheed), Bolo Hau will be released pan India on 15 th January 2021.
