The film will be produced by Cult Movies, which is the new section under Shobha Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Telefilms, which produces new age & edgy content. Interestingly, it is the third film to be announced under Cult Movies, after Dobaaraa and Dibakar Banerjee’s LSD 2.
U-Turn is a thriller film written, produced, and directed by Pawan Kumar. The plot revolves around the death of motorists who break a traffic rule at a particular flyover in Bangalore and subsequent pinning down of the culprit by an intern journalist and police inspector duo.
