There’s been much speculation that R Balki’s next would have a certain few actors and the director has now officially announced the thriller. It will star Sunny Deol, Dulquer Salmaan, Pooja Bhatt and Shreya Dhanwanthary in the lead roles.
Hindustan Times quotes the director revealing more, “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”.
About Deol’s part, 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”.
He went on to add, “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… I just knew that I would eventually work with this talented girl (Dhanwanthary). She is one of the most exciting and contemporary performers and I am looking forward to the on-screen chemistry between her and Dulquer”.
And on coming together with Bhatt, he concluded, “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 film expected for a 2022 release.
