Actress Gul Panag who made headlines after having kept her pregnancy under wraps, will not just be playing mom to her six-month-old son Nihal but also will be playing reel mom in Naman Nitin Mukesh’s untitled thriller drama. The film also features Neil Nitin Mukesh and Adah Sharma in pivotal roles.
Last week the news of Gul playing a sports coach in Karan Johar’s college drama ‘Student Of The Year 2’ made its way to the internet and now we have learnt that the well maintained actress has bagged the main negative lead in Naman Nitin Mukesh’s directorial debut.
Talking about her role Gul Panag states, “This is the first time ever that I’m dabbling in the grey shade spectrum. I was always apprehensive to play a part that required me to look much older than what I really am but the script just drew me in.”
Naman Nitin Mukesh adds, “We wanted to cast someone who doesn’t have a pre-conceived perception in the minds of the audience and the trade and someone who hasn’t attempted playing a negative character previously. We wanted to bring forth the unpredictable layering with her character and she can effortlessly pull off the multiple shades of grey.”
NNM Films and Madan Paliwal of MIRAJ will jointly produce the thriller drama which is being directed by Naman Nitin Mukesh and written by Neil Nitin Mukesh and features an ensemble casting. The mahurat shot will be inaugurated at Mukesh’s 25th Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations and thereafter the film will be shot in Alibaug and Lonavla over a span of 3 months.
Aditya Datt, known for helming ‘Table No. 21’ and ‘Karenjit Kaur: The Untold Story Of Sunny Leone’, will also helm Vidyut Jammwal’s upcoming film ‘Commando 3’ and the latter welcomed the former to the film team with a gift.
Datt revealed that Vidyut gifted him Army-style dog tags as a gesture of welcome to the ‘Commando 3’ team. An elated Aditya shared the pic of the dog tags on Instagram and said, “Sometimes a small gesture makes things big for life… a souvenir at the start of a new journey from the man himself, appreciate it.” Aditya is currently prepping for ‘Commando 3’, which also stars Adah Sharma, Angira Dhar and Gulshan Devaiah, in London.
The second season of Datt’s ‘Karenjit Kaur: The Untold Story Of Sunny Leone’, is slated to premiere on September 18.
We had reported that Aditya Datt, known for directing ‘Table No. 21’ and web series ‘Karenjit Kaur: The Untold Story Of Sunny Leone’, is also helming the third film in the ‘Commando’ series starring Vidyut Jammwal and we have some fresh update about it.
A little birdie whispered in our ears that the action thriller, which will be bigger and better than the prequels, is slated to go on floors in September end in London. Apart from Vidyut, ‘Commando 3’ will also star Adah Sharma, Angira Dhar and Gulshan Devaiah. We have also learned that the film will hit screens in the second half of 2019.
The first Commando, which came out in 2013, introduced Vidyut Jammwal and was an immense hit, courtesy its spectacular action sequences. However, the sequel ‘Commando 2’ scraped through at the box-office despite a bigger cast and canvas but this time, hopes are high as Aditya is taking up the reins of the third film.
‘Commando 3’ is being presented by Reliance Entertainment and produced by Vipul Amrutlal Shah.
