For the first time ever, the makers of R Balki’s Chup featuring Sunny Deol, Dulquer Salmaan and Pooja Bhatt, have organised a special public viewing of their highly anticipated romantic psycho-thriller for the audience three days before its release across ten cities of the country. In ten minutes, the tickets were sold out.
Usually, most films have been shown to the critics and the film industry before the audience. However, the audience will be the first ones to watch it as the special public freeview of Chup has been organised in ten cities including Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad, Delhi, Lucknow, Gurgaon, Jaipur, Kolkata, Bangalore and Hyderabad on the 20th of September.
Writer-Director R Balki posted a video on his social media mentioning, “I am here to invite you for an exceptional preview, which is actually a Freeview, so please come and watch the movie for free 3 days before its release in a few select cities. Traditionally, most films have been shown to the critics and the film industry before the audience. For the first time ever, the audience will get to see a film before anybody else. The audience will pass their opinion of the film before anybody else. So please block your seats and tell us aapko Chup kaisi lagi. We would really like to know!”
Dr. Jayantilal Gada of Pen Studios adds, “It’s a revolutionary concept in Bollywood where the audience would be able to watch a movie free of cost. ‘Chup’ is an edge-of-the-seat romantic thriller, and it gives us great pleasure to provide good content to an audience, even if free as we believe in entertaining them.

DULQUER SALMAAN ABOUT R BALKI IN CHUP
Actor Dulquer Salmaan will be seen in a different character in the thriller Chup: Revenge of the Artist, which is helmed by R Balki of Pad Man and Paa fame.
Whilst promoting the film, the actor and director paid a visit to the national capital
Sharing why Chup is special for him, Dulquer said, “I do films that pull me out of the film, so even though I listened (heard scripts) of so many films across languages. I felt that ‘Chup’ stood out from all of them.”
He added, “I have read the reviews and comments on the trailer, everybody felt that it was unique. Even my friends and directors in Malayalam (film industry) said this is a terrific idea, none of us thought of this. So that was what I loved about the script.”
He also said, “Working with Balki sir for me is a dream come true. It is not something, that I ever imagined happening. When I received the call (to work on the film), it was a different excitement. The film script being so interesting was like a double bounce for me. So it was a no-brainer for me to accept the part in this film.”
Chup: Revenge of the Artist is set to release on 23rd September 2022.
