Kabir Singh Chowdhry's next titled Kālakūta
The film is written by Mihir Fadnavis and produced by Sapna Bhavnani, and this will be Kabir's follow-up film to the critically-acclaimed Mehsampur
Director Kabir Singh Chowdhry’s upcoming film has been titled Kālakūta (Kalkut). The title refers to a “deadly, world-destroying poison” mentioned in Hindu mythology (also known as Halahala) that was consumed by Lord Shiva to save the earth. The film is written by Mihir Fadnavis and produced by Sapna Bhavnani.
Talking about his new project, the director says, “Kalkut is sort of a body-horror film involving a serial killer; a messed-up family story with a father and son, where the father is a serial killer. It’s based in Maharashtra, Odisha, and Uttarakhand.”
Mihir adds, “While we can’t say much at this point, the film has a thought-provoking story with a very dark core. It has got things you’ve never before seen in Indian cinema.”
Kālakūta is in the early stages of scripting and will go on floors later this year. Kabir’s previous film, Mehsampur, won the Golden Gateway Award at the MAMI Mumbai Film Festival in 2018.
