RJ Anirudh Chawla, who has directed this film, apparently got the idea after he hosted a farmhouse party last year. Unknown to his celebrity guests comprising Bollywood actors and models, he reportedly placed 12 cameras in secret locations to record their intimate conversations that revolved around sexuality, kinks, fantasies, marriages, affairs and rivalries.
The raw, uncensored footage was so scandalous that the radio jockey decided to turn it into the country’s first reality film! It is being said that when the celebrities heard about the film `revealing all’, they threatened to sue him for breach of privacy . So, he devised a novel way of presenting what he had recorded to an audience that he knew would enjoy it. Names were changed and events were dramatised using actors like Swara Bhaskar, Sumeet Vyas, Amol Parashar, Alekh Sangal and Aman Uppal.
Produced by Yusuf Shaikh and directed by Anirudh, the film has a tagline that says it all: No mercy, only controversy.
The teasers, which use blurred images and dialogue posters, have generated curiosity, as has the film’s trailer, which released recently.
Sabki Bajegi Band, produced by YEN Films and presented by Percept Pictures, releases on May 1.
