Actress Tamannaah Bhatia, who entertained audiences with her antics in the comic caper F3, is back in the news for a direct-to-OTT release Babli Bouncer. The film, directed by Madhur Bhandarkar, is releasing in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi simultaneously on September 23 on Disney+ Hotstar. Star Studios and Junglee Pictures have jointly produced the film. The team was in Hyderabad to promote the film's Telugu version earlier today.
Talking about the film, Madhur Bhandarkar shared, "I have a lot of memories with Hyderabad. I made my first film Chandini Bar entirely in Ramoji Film City. I also worked with RGV on films like Raathri, Rangeela, Gaayam, Govinda Govinda, to name a few. It feels great to be back in Hyderabad again after over two decades. I have seen a lot of female bouncers back in the North, was inspired by their lives and commenced work on Babli Bouncer."
"Babli in the film is mentally and physically strong. I thought Tamannaah was our best choice to play the part. Baahubali brought out her best as a performer and lot of people even asked me why did I cast her for the role. All those who had doubts on my casting called me personally to tell that I was right in my decision after watching the trailer. Tamannaah lived up to my expectations and performed very well as a bouncer. The film is a complete family entertainer," he added.
Expressing her happiness about the release, Tamannaah rememebered her beginnings in Telugu cinema and told that she always took pride in the fact her journey started her. "SS Rajamouli and Sukumur pick rooted Indian stories and make films that are driven by emotions. I consider myself lucky to be playing a female bouncer in Babli Bouncer. Madhur Bhandarkar has won multiple national awards and it was a great experience working with him. I play a girl from Haryana, this is my career-best film."
