The CBI took over the case after nationwide outrage and protests. In 2020, the Delhi High Court sentenced prime accused Brajesh Thakur to rigorous life imprisonment
Interestingly, actor Arjun Kapoor had been roped for the film, and start the shoot in March 2020 but, the pandemic infused lockdown didn’t let that happen. Also, after the pandemic, the actor could not accommodate his dates and thus he backed out from the film.
The makers of the film turned the entire centre of the film from hero-centric to female-centric and thus roped in the beautiful Bhumi Pednekar for the film. Bhakshak will be a heroine-led crime thriller drama flick.
On the professional front, Bhumi Pednekar also has Mr Lele in the slew for herself. The actress will be seen alongside Vicky Kaushal and Kiara Advani.
