Bhumi Pednekar, Sushant Singh Rajput and Manoj Bajpayee starrer Sonchiriya, which was initially scheduled to release on February 8, has got a new release date. Confirming the same, Bajpayee tweeted, “Kar rahe hai yeh बाग़ी साजिश लूटने ki, thoda इंतज़ार कीजिये, yeh डकैती shuru hogi 1st March से. #Sonchiriya.”
Sonchiriya will not release on MARCH 1, 2019!
The film is set in Chambal of the 70s and revolves around the stories of dacoits who thrived and fought each other to attain control of the area.
Pednekar, who has impressed us all with her brilliant performance in Netflix film Lust Stories, will be making a comeback on the big screen with this project. The actor confessed that working on the film was akin to visiting an acting school.

“Working on this movie was like visiting an acting school. Being a Mumbai girl, I had led a comfortable life. To play the role of a rural woman who was living in a suppressed society in the ’70s, I had to prepare myself physically and mentally,” the actor said in an interview earlier.
Helmed by Abhishek Chaubey, who has previously directed acclaimed films like Udta Punjab and Ishqiya, the film also features Ashutosh Rana and Ranvir Shorey in significant roles.
