After the success of Gadaar-The Traitor, Harbhajan Mann is to return with 'Saadey CM Saab' which also stars Gurpreet Ghuggi.
The excessively delayed project titled Saadey CM Saab is finally set for release this May and the makers have just released the teaser.
Harbhajan Mann has been globally appreciated for staying true to Punjabi cinema even in those times when Punjabi industry was not as widespread and glorified as it is today.
Harbhajan Mann stated that Saadey CM Saab is a take on politics and is a great mix of comedy, action and emotions. “I play a different character. It is a story of three village friends who go through an unexpected thrilling journey in one month while empowering my character of Yuvraj reach the position of CM.”
The makers of the film have cast Rohan Singh, Dev Gill (leading baddie of South Indian films), Gurpreet Ghuggi, Kashish Singh, Inder Bajwa and Mann, lending the film an apt flavour. The film, directed by Vipin Parashar is a result of great research work and story by Sumeet Singh.
“Only when you see this film will you realise how different it is. Punjabi cinema is not just about comedy, there’s a lot more to it,” he says.
Mann enjoyed playing a neta as much as singing Shah Rukh Khan’s Fan anthem in Punjabi lately. And, it’s Bollywood playback singing he wants to concentrate next along with bringing out Punjabi films with substance.
Vipin Prashar who has worked on two Bollywood projects, has Saadey CM Saab as first release. “We have paid attention to every little thing. The film has shot over in some 60 locations over 72 days all over in Punjab,” says Vipin.
The film that is being dubbed in Hindi would see a worldwide release on May 27.
“The USP is going to be the VFX effects that we have hugely invested in,” says Sumeet who intends to tap the entire Middle-East and European market. The film has Sunita Radia as director of photography who has to her credit films like Jal, Devdas and Rang De Basanti. Also, Dev Gill, Punjab’s export of South cinema in the negative lead.
“The best of cast and crew, and the best of intentions, Saadey CM Saab is a film made dil se,” claims Sumeet.
