Indian director-producer Anurag Kashyap is on a roll. His film ‘Ghoomketu’ released today on Zee5 and now his other film’s trailer ‘Choked: Paisa Bolta Hai’ was released by Netflix.
While Anurag makes a rare appearance in ‘Ghoomketu’, in ‘Choked: Paisa Bolta Hai’, he will be seen doing what he does best — direction.
The film follows a hapless, strong-headed middle-class bank cashier Sarita who comes into a recurring source of virtually unlimited cash. Her life changes as she begins to spend on everything she desires, only for an unprecedented announcement to stop her in her tracks: the 2016 demonetisation. Right after that move, Sarita is dragged into a criminal world completely unknown to her.
Choked cast includes Saiyami Kher, Roshan Mathew, Amruta Subhash, Upendra Limaye, Tushar Dalvi, Rajshri Deshpande, Vaishnavi Rp, Uday Nene, Parthveer Shukla, Sanjay Bhatia, Aditya Kumar, and Milind Pathak.
Anurag Kashyap directed the film off a script by Nihit Bhave. He has also co-produced the film alongside Dhruv Jagasia.
