MUMBAI: The successful team of Fox Star Studios and Vishesh Films is back with 'Citylights', this May.
'Citylights' brings back the National Award winning duo Hansal Mehta and Rajkummar Rao, after their earlier venture ‘Shahid’ wowed the audiences and the critics alike.
Rajkummar Rao is paired opposite actress Patralekha who will be making her debut with this film.
'Citylights' is based on the life of a trader in Rajasthan who comes to Mumbai with his wife and daughter in hope of a better life. The challenges they encounter in a big city and how they rise to meet those challenges nurtured by the power of their love is what 'Citylights' is all about.
At heart 'Citylights' is a love story, a story about familial bonding, a thriller that explores the depths of human nature and a drama about sacrifice in the city of dreams.
The film is an official remake of the international award winning film 'Metro Manila' that has received critical acclaim and won many awards internationally.
