Badlapur, a 'twisted entertainer' starring actors Varun Dhawan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Huma Qureshi, is slated to hit the screens on February 22, 2015.
Eros International is co-producing the movie with Dinesh Vijan's Maddock Films after associating with the banner in movies like Love Aaj Kal, Agent Vinod, Cocktail and Go Goa Gone.
Also starring actors Yami Gautam and Vinay Pathak, the film has been directed by filmmaker Sriram Raghavan, known for helming thrillers such as Ek Hasina Thi and Johnny Gaddaar.
"The plot of the film is intense and intriguing, and promises to be high on entertainment," Sunil Lulla, managing director, Eros International Media Ltd, said in a statement. "We are confident that the film will connect with audiences with its gritty screenplay and brilliant performances," Lulla added.
Talking about the film, Vijan said, "Badlapur depicts the age-old conflict of good versus evil, but Raghavan takes that concept further and twists it beyond recognition. He is one of the purest filmmakers I know and also the craziest. Badlapur is unadulterated Raghavan. He has found the perfect accomplice to depict this madness in Varun Dhawan in a never before seen role."
After winning hearts with his loverboy and comedy routine, Varun will foray into action with this movie, the sound track and background score of which has been composed by the duo Sachin-Jigar.
