Jeet is all set to be back in Eid with Chengiz, a film that will see a nationwide release with a Hindi dubbed version.

Talking about its pan-Indian reach, Jeet said, “This is not a bilingual film. It is dubbed in Hindi. It was time to take a leap. The roadmap to it is already there. Other regional industries have done that and we have seen their success. Similar ventures happened in the past but from Baahubali onwards it became more popular. You make a film in the vernacular language and that can now break the barriers and become a pan-Indian success. That roadmap has already been created. Now we know that we can also do the same.
The trailer of Chengiz presents high-octane action sequences in telling a story of a drug lord, Jaidev, aka Chengiz (played by Jeet) – who ruled the ’70s Kolkata. Will the film match the grandeur of other big-budget films in India? “When this question is asked it becomes evident that the film has shown traits to be compared with big films. Obviously, Chengiz is giving that kind of vibe for sure. I would not say that in terms of opulence or scale, Chengiz will meet other big-budget films from the South, Bollywood, or other industries. But in terms of content, yes, we are there. What happens is, for two and a half hours, you want your audience to sit tight and enjoy the film. That is something that this film promises. That is our strength. We felt that we will be able to keep our audience glued with this edge-of-your-seat thriller,” explained Jeet.
