Recently, director Madhur Bhandarkar discussed why he decided to make the comedy Babli Bouncer, which features Tamannaah Bhatia in the lead role.

When discussing the idea, Madhur told ANI that in real life, he's a pretty hilarious person. Many believed that he preferred dark films after Chandni Bar. However, after receiving Babli Bouncer, the filmmaker desired to produce a comedy or slice-of-life movie. Madhur had the urge to present the world of bouncers. The world is fascinating, as are the people that inhabit it. A humorous movie that people can enjoy with their families is also something he felt was desperately needed after the first pandemic hit so hard.

Babli Bouncer, directed by Madhur and produced by Star Studios and Junglee Pictures, also features Saurabh Shukla, Abhishek Bajaj, and Sahil Vaid in significant parts.

From September 23, 2022, the movie will be available exclusively on Disney+ Hotstar in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.

Asola Fatepur, the actual "bouncer town" in North India, serves as the setting for the coming-of-age feel-good tale Babli Bouncer. Tamannaah will appear as Babli Bouncer in a brand-new avatar.

Chandani Bar, Fashion, Heroine, Page 3, Calendar Girls, Traffic Signal, and Corporate are just a few of Madhur's well-known flicks.

In his career, the director won three national awards for Chandani Bar, Traffic Signal, and Page 3.

In addition, Madhur revealed a movie titled India Lockdown with Prateik Babbar, Aahana Kumra, and Shweta Basu Prasad in the key roles.

Despite his film's having an "A" certificate, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) had previously requested 12 edits.

Madhur had earlier directed a romantic comedy film, Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji, back in 2011, which featured Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi, and Omi Vaidya in the lead roles. It was the first time we saw the filmmaker attempt the comedy genre.
