MSM Motion Pictures has three more movies lined up for release by this year‘s end. "Three more projects are in production and pre-production phase. We have collaborated with different production houses for the same," added Singh.

Bajate Raho is a revenge comedy. "The other three movies, all mid budget, will be in the genre of comedy, romantic comedy and horror," he said.

The movie which promises to do away with formula movies has been directed by Shashant Shah of Dasvidaniya andChalo Dilli fame. "He was one more reason for us to co-produce the movie. He was a part of Sony Max ten years back. When we heard the script, it impressed upon us so much, that we decided to co-produce it along with Eros International."

MSM Motion Pictures, which is a division of MSM will be headed by CEO Manjit Singh and COO N.P Singh.

"After our successful stint in television space we were keen to expand our horizons and tap the growing movie business in India. We are focused to provide entertaining and engaging content by offering combination of big as well as medium budget films," said Manjit Singh.

The film is set to release on 26 July and has a star cast consisting of Ravi Kishan, Tusshar Kapoor, Vinay Pathak, Ranvir Shorey and Dolly Ahluwalia.

Bajate Raho, a revenge comedy is about making things right by taking the wrong way.

The promos seem promising, but will it reach out to the audience? We will have to wait and watch. For now as the star cast says "Bajate Raho."
