On the release date of their 2015 hit, Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo, Rajshri Productions announced their next project, Hum Chaar.
The film will be directed by Abhishek Dixit, a former assistant to Sooraj R Barjatya, and will be released early next year.
There were reports in February this year of Barjatya reading the script and greenlighting it for production. Reports suggest the film will have four new faces playing friends.
The announcement teaser depicts a departure from the usual familial settings of a Barjatya production. The visuals, which build on the success of the production house’s last film, also focus on the family-first stories of Hum Aapke Hain Koun..! (1994) and Hum Saath-Saath Hain (1999).
However, the new film will focus on friendship. The teaser’s tagline, ‘Friends are also family’, emphasizes the point.
