Set against the backdrop of the partition of Bangladesh from India in the 1970s, Gunday tracks the story of two Bangladeshi refugees Bikram (Ranveer Singh) and Bala (Arjun Kapoor) who arrive in Kolkata to escape the paedophilic industry. From stealing coal from trains as children to becoming the biggest coal mafia in Calcutta, they turn into the quintessential ‘Gunday’ who undertake a lot of charity work on the side.
On finding filming in the fish market a challenge, Priyanka Chopra says, “The fish market really distracted me. Such a bad smell! I thought I would throw up after every five minutes. It was a distraction as there’s nothing you can do about your olfactory senses. It was horrible.”
On being paired opposite his costar Priyanka Chopra for the first time, Ranveer Singh says, “She is actor-friendly, director-friendly, and producer-friendly. She makes everyone's task easier by tapping-in her experience. She is a one-take artist."
Tune-in to watch the action-drama-cum-romance ‘Gunday’ that premieres at 1pm on Sunday, 17th and at 8 pm on Saturday 23rd August only on Sony MAX
