Based in UP, Subhash Kapoor’s next is a political drama titled Madam Chief Minister that features Richa Chadha in the lead role. Joining the cast along with her in important roles is Manav Kaul, Saurabh Shukla, Akshay Oberoi & Shubrajyoti Barat.

Speaking on his next, the director says, “While working as a political journalist, I came through several incidents which has led me to write this story. I am happy that Bhushanji came ahead and decided to support this film. It was during one of the discussions for Gulshanji’s biopic when I spoke about the film with him and that’s where the association on the film began.”
Bhushan Kumar adds, “Subhash has incorporated many interesting incidents and anecdotes from his experience as a political journalist into the narrative. It’s a very interesting script.”
