Blood Money film directed by Vishal Mahadkar sees Kunal Kemmu and Amrita Puri of “Aisha” fame in the lead roles. It also features Mia Uyeda and Karan Mehra.
The film is the story of Kunal (Kunal Kemmu) and his wife Arzoo (Amrita Puri), who shift to Cape Town from India after the former gets a job with a well-known diamond export firm run by Zaveri (Manish Chaudhuri) and his brother (Sandiip Sikcand).
Thanks to the job, Kunal gets a plush mansion, a swanky new car and all the luxuries of life that money could procure. However, gradually, Kunal finds himself getting trapped into a structured white-collar crime conglomerate.
It is a fast-paced movie packaged with good music and reflects the plight of young people who don’t realise foreign jobs can put them into danger.
It is also being said that the film has been inspired by Hollywood movie “Blood Diamond”, but the makers say it bears no similarity to Leonardo DiCaprio starrer.
With the film Kunal returns to the Mahesh Bhatt camp five years after “Kalyug” and is looking forward to the response. This is Amrita’s first lead role after her stint in “Aisha”, where was seen in a supporting role.
The film has been extensively shot in Cape Town and Western Cape in South Africa.
