Kriti is believed to a crime thriller and the poster has Bajpayee with a villainous grin as he covers Apte’s eyes with one hand while he places the other on Sharma’s mouth.
Kunder’s choreographer-director wife Farah Khan too shared the poster online.
“Here it is! #Kriti !1st look@ShirishKunder @BajpayeeManoj @radhika_apte @Officialneha @manushdop @CastingChhabra,” Farah tweeted.

Shirish, who enjoys huge popularity for his wit and unique take on political goings on received instant support to his new venture.
Friends from film fraternity and journalists were all quick to share the poster on social media.
His brother-in-law, Sajid Khan wrote, “Gr8 1st look….waiting to see the movie…(sic).”
Through Kriti, Shirish is reportedly very keen to create a new identity of a serious filmmaker.
Bajpayee and Apte have earned critics’ accolades through their separate works in films exploring serious social issues.
While the “Aligarh” actor was there in “Jai Hind” and “Taandav”, the “Badlapur” actress starred in Sujoy Ghosh’s short film “Ahalya”.
Here are some of the early reactions to Kriti on twitter:
