Nikkhil Advani's upcoming production will feature John Abraham and Manoj Bajpayee in the lead roles. Director Milap Zaveri will mark his return to the action-thriller genre with this film.
In an interview with daily, Times of India, producer Advani said of the film, "It is a very tight script which revolves around a cop and a murderer. I can't reveal who between the two is playing what, but both are powerful characters and a dark thriller is a genre I haven't explored before."
Both the producer Advani, and director Zaveri, have previously worked with John Abraham. While Advani directed Abraham in the 2007 musical, Salaam-E-Ishq, Zaveri wrote the dialogues for Shootout At Wadala (2013) which starred John Abraham and Manoj Bajpayee.
The same report quoted John as saying, "It is one of the best scripts I have heard in recent times. Nikkhil has directed me in the past; Milap has written Shootout At Wadala and Manoj is someone I deeply respect. So I am sure we will crack this."
Bajpayee said, "I love the combination of drama and emotion with a correct mix of suspense in the script. It will be a great collaboration."
The team is expected to start workshops in mid-December, while the film will go on floors in January.
John will be next seen in Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran, while Manoj Bajpayee is currently shooting for Devashish Makhija's Bhonsle.
