Chocolate boy Swapnil Joshi to be seen in an intense flick Bali-The Victim; teaser poster released!

One of the most popular and talented actors of Marathi industry, Swapnil Joshi, is mostly known for light-hearted films. But occasionally, he has surprised audiences with serious fares and with roles in which he has grey shades. Swapnil continues this tradition with Bali-The Victim, whose teaser poster released today. And it is so intriguing that it has already become a talking point. It depicts cross that too in bloody red colour. And there’s also blood dripping, which adds to the intrigue value.

Bali-The Victim is directed by Vishal Furia, who earlier directed the 2016 Marathi horror film Lapachhapi. It was his directorial debut and was a box office success. He also directed the popular web series Criminal Justice with Tigmanshu Dhulia. The producers of Bali-The Victim are Arjun Singgh Baran and Kartik Nishandar of GSEAMS (Global Sports Entertainment and Media Solutions Private Limited). They have produced films like Mogara Phulalaa, Fugey, Tula Kalanar Nahi and Ranangan and the upcoming flick Vicky Welingkar and they presented Bhikari.

Swapnil Joshi and the makers however refuse to share much about the film’s plot, thereby increasing the film’s curiosity. Swapnil Joshi says, “I had promised audience of Marathi films that I’ll explore new genre this year. This film is a small step taken by me in that direction. I am very happy to get into the horror space. Also, it’s great that I have got an opportunity to do it with my favourite people like Kartik, Arjun and an expert director in this field, Vishal. I am sure that we together could ‘scare’ the people and at the same time, give them an entertaining time.”

Vishal Furia meanwhile states, “Lapachhapi was well received by the Marathi audience proving that they love the horror genre. The response encouraged me to continue making horror films for them. With a star like Swapnil, who has been loved by the audience, on board and maverick producers Arjun and Kartik backing my second horror film, I promise to make it bigger and scarier than Lapachhapi.”

Lastly, Arjun Singgh Baran and Kartik D Nishandar say, “We are happy to venture into a new genre of horror films. What could be a better choice than having Vishal Furia as a director after his success as director of Lapachhapi. The film is considered as one of the top ten horror films in the country. We also have one of the top actors in the industry Swapnil Joshi in lead role. He is like a family member for us. Even for him, this would be an opportunity in his career to explore a different genre.”
