Anurag Kashyap unveils first poster of Kennedy.
Anurag Kashyap’s Kennedy stars Rahul Bhat and Sunny Leone in the lead roles.
Bringing you a story based on the insomniac cop who dwells in different circumstances while looking for redemption, the first poster of Anurag Kashyap’s directorial police noir ‘Kennedy’ is out now. After being selected for the screening in the ‘Midnight Screening’ category at the Cannes Film Festival 2023, the makers have finally released the first poster that indeed encapsulates all the enigma the film is about to bring to the screen for the audience.
Kennedy is an insomniac ex-cop, long thought to be dead still operating for the corrupt system while looking for redemption. The first poster features the lead actors Rahul Bhat on the mega canvas wearing a mask and Sunny Leone standing screaming in front of a door. Very well justifying its genre of police noir, the poster is designed in a red and black theme while the gun and the blood stains eyes at a suspicious story the audience will get to witness in the film.
In an interview with Variety, Kashyap shared that the character of Kennedy has been an obsession with him for years and it happened when fellow Indian filmmaker Sudhir Mishra hired him to write a cop story set in the 1980s. He shared that while the film never got made, the character stayed with him. “Then there’s an actual incident that happened in the lockdown which suddenly triggered an idea. Suppose if that kind of a character existed in that lockdown around that incident, and a fictional story came out set around things that happened in the lockdown,” he revealed.
Moreover, coming from the house of Anurag Kashyap who is well known for giving us many thriller movies, with ‘Kennedy’ it would be interesting to see what new he has got on his plate this time as he is stepping into the police noir genre for the first time.
Kennedy is written and directed by Anurag Kashyap starring Rahul Bhat and Sunny Leone. The film has been produced by Zee Studios and Ranjan Singh & Kabir Ahuja of Good Bad Films. The DOP of the film is Sylvester Fonseca. The music of the film is composed by Ashish Narula with Aamir Aziz & Boyblanck. The editing of the film is done by Tanya Chhabria and Deepak Kattar.
