What makes Chup: Revenge of the Artist ft. Dulquer Salmaan-Sunny Deol the most talked about film right now!


From sending paper flower bouquets to film critics to hosting the first-ever free public preview screening of a Hindi film in 11 cities across the country three days before the film's release, writer and director R. Balki's new film Chup: Revenge of the Artist starring Sunny Deol, Dulquer Salmaan, Shreya Dhanwanthary, and Pooja Bhatt has provided plenty to talk about, primarily the way the media directors have handled the film and used out of the box thinking to create a buzz around it.

It’s interesting to note that for the public Freeview, all screens across the 11 cities were house full in less than 10 minutes. It just goes to show just how much the public is anticipating this film. The second screening of the film was a joint film screening where film critics and industry personnel both watched the film together as a big family for the very first time and before the screening the makers also had a one-of-kind panel discussion between critics and directors. The panel saw Anees Bazmi, Raj & DK and Alankrita Shrivastava join in and share their views and experiences.
