Pankaj Tripathi's Kaagaz to be released in January
Kaagaz is based on the life of Bharat Lal aka Lal Bihari from Azamgarh, who fought a legal battle for 18 years to prove that he is alive
Pankaj Tripathi-starrer Kaagaz, presented by Salman Khan, is set to premiere on ZEE5 on January 7.
Based on the life of Bharat Lal aka Lal Bihari from Azamgarh, who fought a legal battle for 18 years to prove that he is alive, Kaagaz is directed by actor-filmmaker Satish Kaushik.
"I did a lot of research on the events that took place in his life, eventually, it felt to me like this story deserved to be told to the world and we could have not asked for a better production partner than Salman Khan Films (SKF) and then ZEE5 to showcase it. Now, it's just a click away for the audiences," Kaushik said in a statement.
Pankaj said he was excited to be a part of an inspiring story like Kaagaz. "My character will be quite different from some of my recent ventures and I am excited to be a part of such an inspiring story. This story needs to be heard and I am sure that ZEE5 will give it the reach that it deserves."
Apart from premiering digitally, the film will also be released in select theatres in Uttar Pradesh.
