R. Balki has announced the release of his latest thriller, which stars Sunny Deol, Dulquer Salmaan, Pooja Bhatt, and Shreya Dhanwanthary.
Talking about being back to shooting films, Balki said: “After months of waiting, it is exciting to start shooting anything. And to make a film in a genre that I haven’t attempted before is even more exciting. I have had the idea for a long time but never quite got around to writing it, and while it’s fundamentally a thriller, it banks so much on these four stunning performers. I just can’t wait to get into the edit room.”
Getting Sunny Deol to join the ensemble, Balki said, “I am ecstatic to be working with Sunny, an actor whose booming screen presence conveys so much. Am glad he is back and hoping this new adventure will add a new dimension to his glorious filmography.”
On Dulquer, he said, “Dulquer is possibly one of the most charming actors in Indian cinema today, and even though I cannot say much about his role except at this point, I am really looking forward to his distinct and cool interpretation of it.”
Talking about Pooja Bhatt, he further added, “Pooja is one of the most versatile actors in our industry, and I must thank Alankrita for convincing her and getting another extraordinary performance from her in Bombay Begums. She is clarity personified and just born to be in front of that camera and on-screen.”
‘Cheeni Kum,’ ‘Paa,’ and ‘Pad Man’ are among the films directed by the writer-director. For the first time, he’ll try his hand at the thriller genre. The film is expected to release in early 2022.
