Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar transform themselves into Prakashi and Chandro Tomar, 80 plus sharpshooters from Haryana in the film 'Saand Ki Aankh'. 

The teaser begins with a background narration "We must have listened to many stories from our grandmothers but today I will narrate the story of my grandmothers- Chandro Tomar and Prakashi Tomar."

As the narrator introduces Chandro and Prakashi (played by Taapsee Pannu), the sharpshooter duo appears on the screen dressed in ghagra, kurta in a Haryanvi style with guns in their hands.It appears that the duo hail from a conservative family.

A scene shows the grandmothers uncovering their faces for a family picture only to cover it again when men gave them a look.



The film revolves around the grannies Chandro and Prakashi who take up the shooting at the age of 50 to encourage their daughters towards a bright future. They did not want their daughters to share the same fate of a lifetime of suppression. What unfolded was nothing short of a miracle. They discovered their own skill of being exceptional shooters. Despite all the odds, they won 352 medals each in the course of their veteran professional life as shooters.

The film also stars Prakash Jha Viineet Kumar and Shaad Randhawa. Helmed by Tushar Hiranandani, `Saand Ki Aankh` is produced by Anurag Kashyap and Nidhi Parmar.The film is scheduled to hit the theaters this Diwali.
