Starring an eclectic cast of Varun Dhawan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Huma Qureshi, Yami Gautam and Vinay Pathak, the film is directed by well known film maker Sriram Raghavan, known for helming thrillers such as Ek Hasina Thi and Johnny Gaddaar. The film marks Eros' continued association with Dinesh Vijan after collaborating on a range of films like Love Aaj Kal, Agent Vinod, Cocktail and Go Goa Gone.
Commenting on the announcement, Sunil Lulla, Managing Director, Eros International Media Ltd said, "The plot of the film is intense and intriguing and promises to be high on entertainment in Raghavan's inimitable style. We are delighted to once again associate with Dinesh and are confident that the film will connect with audiences with its gritty screenplay and brilliant performances."
Producer Dinesh Vijan added, "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 film makers 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".
