'Banaras', starring Zaid Khan and Sonal Monterio in lead roles, is helmed by Jayathirtha. Producer Tilakraj Ballal is releasing the pan-India flick on November 4.
The film's trailer suggests that the romantic track between Zaid and Sonal has been amped up by a fantasy element. Zaid plays an astronaut who is in the present but is actually from an indefinite future. He and Sonal fall in love with each other. When the latter faces an existential threat, it falls on the hero to save her. Since he knows the future, he has an edge.
Composer Ajaneesh Loknath has worked on the movie that co-stars Sujay Shastry, Devaraj, Achyuth Kumar, Sapna Raj and Barakth Ali. Edited by KM Prakash and with action choreography by Jayathirtha and A Harsha, the film will have a major release in Telugu.
