Shreyas and Deepti Talpade’s Affluence Movies Pvt. Ltd. announced that it had joined hands with DAR Motion Pictures to co-produce the sequel of its Superhit Marathi Film ‘Poshter Boyz’ titled ‘Poshter Boyz 2’. The film will also mark the directorial debut of Actor-Producer Shreyas Talpade and will feature the original Poshter Boyz trio of Dilip Prabhavalkar, Hrishikesh Joshi and Aniket Vishwasrao. Shreyas has already starred in Hindi and Marathi movies and produced Poshter Boyz.
Shreyas Talpade said, “From the day we decided to produce ‘Poshter Boyz’, we knew it would become a franchise. The overwhelming response the movie received on its release only further validated this. ‘Poshter Boyz 2’ will not just push the canvas of the franchise but also aims at doubling the entertainment quotient. Furthermore, I have through my career in films always been fascinated with the art of direction. ‘Poshter Boyz 2’ is the perfect platform for me to take the plunge.
Poshter Boyz revolved around an incident of three ordinary people who, to their surprise, found their pictures on a poster promoting vasectomy and how that error changed their lives around.
Vivek Rangachari, Producer DAR Motion Pictures commented, “We have always been very bullish about the Marathi film industry. Infact the very first film we produced was Lalbaug Parel before moving on to produce a whole host of Hindi films along with Teechaa Baap Tycha Baap and now the highly anticipated Baji. We continue to remain very bullish about the industry and hence when during the shoot of Baji Shreyas narrated the story he had in mind for the sequel to Poshter Boyz we immediately confirmed our partnership in this venture.’’
Poshter Boyz 2 is slated for an early 2016 release.
