Anurag Kashyap released the poster for his upcoming detective noir film, Kennedy, on Monday.
The film, which stars Rahut Bhatt and Sunny Leone, will have its world premiere next month at the Cannes Film Festival in the Midnight Screenings section.
The plot of Kennedy revolves around an insomniac ex-cop, played by Bhatt, who is presumed dead but still works for the corrupt system.
The poster depicts Bhatt wearing a dark officer’s jacket and mask and holding a gun. Leone’s character can be seen laughing hysterically in a black drape.
In a recent interview, Kashyap revealed Kennedy was influenced by the works of French crime novelist Jean-Patrick Manchette and his collaborations with the comic artist Jacques Tardi. He also cited the films of Jean-Pierre Melville as an influence.
Kashyap had previously directed Bhatt in ‘Ugly’ (2013) and ‘Dobaaraa’ (2022).
