ANI Photo | “It is the most relatable place”: Kunal Kemmu opens up on why he shot ‘Madgaon Express’ in Goa

Kunal Kemmu, who has donned a director’s hat with the film ‘Madgaon Express’, which stars Divyenndu, Pratik Gandhi, and Avinash Tiwary, got candid about why he chose to set the film’s backdrop in Goa.
Recently, Kunal unveiled the film’s trailer, which showcases three young boys, who dream about vacationing in Goa someday. Their dream does come true but it soon turns into a nightmare as the three friends, all grown up now, embark upon a train journey via Madgaon Express to reach their destination Goa.
Nora Fatehi, Upendra Limaye and Chhaya Kadam are also a part of the comedy drama.
Talking about his experience of shooting in Goa, Kunal said, “I love Goa, I have been there many times to shoot films and it is the most relatable place. When you say Goa everybody in the country knows that it is all about fun, some kind of excitement, and beaches and it kind of resonates. Also, I am telling the story about boys who live in Bombay and to give them something aspirational is so relatable. They were so close to Goa but still could not reach Goa till 20 years”
In August 2022, Kunal announced his directorial debut via Instagram post.
“Ganpati Bappa Moriya! As all good things begin with his name I can’t think of a better day to share this with all of you. It started with a thought in my head, which grew into a dream which flowed out through my fingers into words on my laptop, and now it is becoming a reality on its way to the silver screen. A big thank you to @ritesh_sid @faroutakhtar and @roo_cha at @excelmovies for believing in my script and my vision and partnering with me on this exciting journey in the world of cinema. With folded hands and a bowed head I seek all of your blessings and the blessings of Ganpati Bappa. Introducing Madgaon Express,” his post read.
‘Madgaon Express’ will be released on March 22. It is produced by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar.
