- Baadshaho is set against the backdrop of Emergency
- Emraan Hashmi, Ileana D'Cruz also co-star with Ajay Devgn
- Baadshaho will clash with Shubh Mangal Savdhan
Baadshaho is a heist-drama set against the backdrop of Emergency (1975). Emraan Hashmi, Ileana D'Cruz, Esha Gupta and Vidyut Jammwal also star in pivotal roles in the Milan Luthria-directed film.
Of the film's subject, Box Office India reports that looks and characters in the film will be a 'huge plus point' for Baadshaho's earnings. However, the report further states that the concept of heist has 'not worked' much. "Even a big star cast film like Khakee could not do the business despite being a very well made film. This film may not be comparable in terms of cast but it is on similar lines in terms of genre."
