Actresses Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar will be seen playing the world's oldest sharpshooters - Chandro Tomar and her sister-in-law Prakashi Tomar - in the upcoming film titled "Saand Ki Aankh".


The Reliance Entertainment film will mark writer Tushar Hiranandani's debut as a director. It will also be jointly produced by Anurag Kashyap and Nidhi Parmar.


"This was a story that deserves to be told and we at Reliance Entertainment, are excited to see this manifest on the big screen," Shibasish Sarkar, Group CEO, Reliance Entertainment, said in a statement.


Taapsee on Saturday took to Twitter, where she shared a photograph of herself along with Bhumi, Chandro and Prakashi.


She captioned the image: "Kickstarting the shoot of our country's oldest and coolest shooters Chandro (and) Prakashi."


Bhumi, who called it a "ground breaking" story, also shared the same image and captioned it: "Old is gold and this is certainly gold! Excited to begin the shooting of this ground breaking real story of world's oldest sharpshooters."


Lauding the star cast, Hiranandani, said: "Both Bhumi and Taapsee have put their heart and soul into the characters right from the initial prep to the training and their looks. The film is the perfect platform for them to reach their true potential as powerhouse performers."


Anurag asserted that "content is king". "We believe 'Saand Ki Aankh' will truly stand out," he added.


It is set in the hinterlands of Uttar Pradesh.


Chandro, 87, and Prakashi, 82, are from Uttar Pradesh's Johri village and reportedly took up sharpshooting in their 50s. Chandro, who is fondly called as shooter 'dadi' is among the world's oldest female sharpshooters.
