The upcoming film 'Lahore, 1947', produced by Aamir Khan Productions, is indeed one of the most anticipated films to come out of Indian cinema. The period film boasts one of the most prominent names in the entertainment industry, as the trio of Sunny Deol, Rajkumar Santoshi, and Aamir Khan is teaming up for the first time for this project. Apart from this, Rajkumar Santoshi has also roped in DOP Santosh Sivan for Sunny Deol's Lahore 1947. 


While speaking about the DOP, Rajkumar Santoshi shared that he shares decades of a relationship with Sivan. He said, "We will have Santosh Sivan as the cameraman/DOP of 'Lahore, 1947'. He is the topmost cameraman in the country right now. Before this, Santosh and I worked together on two films, 'Pukar' and 'Barsaat', in which he served as the cinematographer/cameraman. Interestingly, Santosh directed a film titled 'Halo', and that was the only film I acted in. We share decades of a relationship with each other, and this time we are reuniting with 'Lahore, 1947'."


Given this impressive track record with such a talented group of people coming together for the film, it's only natural to anticipate that 'Lahore, 1947' will be nothing short of a cinematic marvel. It has also been revealed that the shoot for this period drama will begin on 12th February.


Sunny Deol was last seen in the blockbuster film 'Gadar 2', which surpassed 'Pathaan' to become the highest-grossing Hindi film of 2023 at the domestic box office. Rajkumar Santoshi and Sunny Deol have previously delivered three box office hits together in the form of 'Ghayal', 'Damini', and 'Ghatak'. Given this impressive track record, it's only natural to anticipate that their upcoming project will be nothing short of epic. Notably, Sunny Deol recently broke the box office with the 500 Cr plus mega blockbuster 'Gadar 2'.

‘Lahore, 1947’ also marks the reunion of Aamir Khan and Santoshi after their iconic cult classic, 'Andaz Apna Apna'. With such legendary and talented creative names coming together for the first time, it seems like a MEGA treat awaiting our audiences.
