Filmmaker R Balki has unveiled the Chup teaser on Bollywood legend Guru Dutt's birthday today, July 9th. Paying an ode to him, the teaser directly refers to the criticism that Guru Dutt received for his masterpiece Kaagaz Ke Phool at the time of its release.
Speaking about the teaser, R Balki said, "Guru Dutt's Kaagaz Ke Phool is one of the many films that is seen as iconic today but was strongly criticized when it was released. Should we be more sensitive to an artist's work or should the artists be less sensitive about what is being written about their work."
Chup is R Balki’s debut in the genre of blood and kills. A thriller of global significance, the movie is being conceptually touted as the first-of-its-kind in the world. His films have always piqued the interest of fans, critics and peers alike with his subject often making headlines. Breaking through the clutter, the disruptive filmmaker has made a lasting impact with his groundbreaking ideas and original school of thought.
