Shiv Shastri Balboa Trailer: After Uunchai (2022), Anupam Kher is set to be back on big screen with his upcoming film Shiv Shastri Balboa which is releasing in cinemas on February 10. From the film’s title, one might guess that it’s a sports film, but now that makers have released the film’s trailer, it’s quite evident that it’s a coming of age drama with lot of emotional moments.
Anupam Kher, who is also the presenter of the film shared trailer on Twitter. “प्रस्तुत है हमारी फ़िल्म #शिवशास्त्रीबलबोआ का “खट्टा मीठा” ट्रेलर! Presenting the “Spice of Life” Trailer of #ShivShastriBalboa!! Releasing 10th Feb, in Cinemas only! Please watch and share!”, he wrote.
The trailer opens with introducing us to titular character Shiv Shankar Shastri (Anupam Kher) who is fondly referred as Shiv Shastri Balboa as he was boxing coach in his heydays.
Shiv Shastri is in USA to spend some time with his son’s (Jugal Hansraj) family. This is when he befriends another Indian (Neena Gupta), who wants to travel to India as she hasn’t been home in eight years. Shiv Shastri decides to take her home and when they are on their journey, Neena’s character looses her passport and all other belongings. When it seems they have no other option, they meet Sharib Hashmi’s character who is a retail shop owner. They also start working in a petrol pump. Nargis Fakhri also makes a brief appearance in the trailer.
The trailer promises that we will get to see lot of fun comical moments along with some emotional scenes. As expected, both veterans look in complete form and there is no doubt that they have nailed their roles. It’s also good to see Jugal Hansraj back on screen after many years.
The official synopsis of Shiv Shastri Balboa reads, “Shiv Shastri, a retiree from India and a big fan of the movie Rocky, moves to the USA and ends up on an unexpected road trip through the American heartland which teaches that it’s never too old to reinvent yourself.”
Ajay Venugopalan’s directorial has been produced by Kishore Varieth. It is presented by UFI Motion pictures, Anupam Kher Studio & Tarun Rathi.
