Sherdil: The Pilibhit Saga release date – Bollywood as a genre has outdone itself with its fantastic releases in recent months. Thanks to that, we adore watching Hindi movies at the theaters once again (post-pandemic).

With great direction and screenplay alongside an outstanding choice of cast, every Bollywood film, whether in cinemas or on the OTT platform, has been a work of art on its own. 

Recently, T-Series and Reliance Entertainment have collaborated with Match Cut Productions for a dark satire titled ‘Sherdil: The Pilibhit Saga.’ Inspired by true events, this film is scheduled to be released on June 24, 

The film is written and directed by National Award winner Srijit Mukherji.

According to the creators, the film would depict an “insightful narrative about the negative impacts of urbanization, man-animal conflict, and poverty leading to an unusual practice in a community on the edge of a forest.”

“Sherdil – The Pilibhit Saga” is Mukherji’s second Hindi film succeeding the 2017 period drama “Begum Jaan,” featuring Vidya Balan. 

Mukherji stated, “I am delighted to rejoin Reliance Entertainment to film ‘Sherdil: The Pilibhit Saga.’” The real-life incidence of tragic activities in the communities near the Pilibhit Tiger Reserve motivated me. I knew I needed to use it in my next film.”

He further added, “It takes immense effort to devote one’s life to rescue one’s family,” adds, “the film concentrates around this heroism with an emphasis on the battle between man and nature.” This is a very personal issue for me, and, I hope it elicits similar feelings in the audience.” Gulshan Kumar, T-Series Film, and Reliance Entertainment present ‘Sherdil: The Pilibhit Saga,’ produced by Bhushan Kumar, Reliance Entertainment, and Match Cut.

It is a delight to witness Bollywood make so many different films on social issues that highlight the struggles of everyday life, injustice, and other social evils in society. Earlier legendary films like Lagaan, Peepli Live, Citylights, and Swades have already showcased the struggles of poverty, village struggles, and several social issues.
