While it was confirmed around two months ago that actor Dulquer Salmaan would star in R Balki’s next movie, the ace director has now announced that Dulquer will be joined by actors Sunny Deol, Pooja Bhatt and Shreya Dhanwanthary. “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.
The director also had some warm words to say about his cast members.
On Sunny Deol
“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 Salmaan
“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.”
On Pooja Bhatt
“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.”
On Shreya Dhanwanthary
“After watching Shreya’s performance in both Scam 1992 and Family Man, I just knew that I would eventually work with this talented girl. She is one of the most exciting and contemporary performers and I am looking forward to the on-screen chemistry between her and Dulquer.”
R Balki is venturing into a new space with this project as it will be a psychological thriller. The movie is expected to release in 2022.
