Filmmaker Dibakar Banerjee's much awaited political thriller has finished shooting and will release on January 26 next year.
Shanghai is based on a European novel published in the mid-1960s and talks about the present roller coaster expose of big money politics and how the common man gets his revenge back.
Actors like Abhay Deol and Emraan Hashmi will be seen in a completely new avatar with Bengali actor Prosenjit making his Bollywood debut with the film.
"Frankly I have been stunned by the performances from our stars and our character artistes. I can safely say that all preconceived notions that people have about both Abhay and Emraan are going to be shattered by this movie," Banerjee said.
"Similarly, the performances from the senior actors are also among the best in their already glittering characters. I can’t wait to get to the edit table to shape this movie into one that will bring out the best of these performances," he added.
