Neeraj Pandey’s last M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story (2016) was one of the few films last year to reach the Rs100-crore mark. So, naturally, there has been a keen interest in his next project.
As per reports, Pandey has signed Manoj Bajpayee and Sidharth Malhotra for his upcoming directorial venture. The title and the subject of the film are not known yet. But reports have stated that the film will be set in Delhi, London and Kashmir. It is likely to go on floors in May.
It is also mentioned that it will release around the Republic Day in 2018. Considering the release date, it seems the said film might have themes of nationalism or patriotism.
This is the second time that Bajpayee would be working in a film directed by Pandey after Special 26. The actor has already acted in a couple of films produced by the filmmaker — Saat Uchakkey (2016) and the recently released Naam Shabana (2017).
Pandey is one of the few filmmakers to have had a successful runs in their first four films. After debuting with the overwhelming thriller, A Wednesday (2008), he gave three back-to-back hits in the form of Special 26 (2013), Baby (2015) and M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story (2016).
