Dulquer Salmaan, Sunny Deol, Shreya Dhanwanthary and Pooja Bhatt are all set to star in R Balki’s next. The filmmaker announced the yet to be titled film on Wednesday. Balki last helmed the Akshay Kumar’s National Award-winning drama Pad Man in 2018.
The filmmaker seems very excited for the genre that he has never attempted before.
“After months of waiting, for me, 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,” Balki said in a statement.
Talking about Sunny Deol, he 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”.
Balki is also thrilled that Dulquer Salmaan will be working with him.
Praising Pooja Bhatt, the director said, “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”.
The yet-untitled film is expected to release in the early 2022.
