Bawri Chhori (How to Kill Your Husband) (2021) follows Radhika, a young woman who has left India for London on a journey to find her estranged husband and enact her revenge on him.
Directed by Akhilesh Jaiswal (Gangs of Wasseypur, Ugly) and Umang Dev Shukla, the film stars Aahana Kumra (Lipstick Under My Burkha, Rangbaaz) as Radhika and Rumana Molla (Dev DD, Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2) as Anna, the free-spirited woman she meets on her journey to England.
Production visited Kent to film on Kingsgate Bay in Broadstairs and at Upper Farm Cottage in Ashford, which doubled for Nani’s (Sohaila Kapur) cottage in Oxford. Filming also took place along Herne Bay seafront, but this did not make the final cut.
Kingsgate Bay is a small sandy bay surrounded by chalk cliffs and featuring a Victorian castle (now private residences) on top of the sea defences. Other productions to have filmed there include True Things (2022), Sulphur and White (2020) and Bhikari (2017).
Upper Farm Cottage is a detached timber frame house set in the quiet village of Rolvenden in Ashford. It is set within approximately 1 acre of land with far-reaching unspoilt countryside views.
Bawri Chhori (2021) did not receive an official UK release but is available to stream on Eros Now via Amazon Prime.
