Having helmed two biopics, director Omung Kumar is now all set to shift gears and start his next film which will be a psychological thriller.
The director, who is currently awaiting the release of Sarbjit, said his next film, which is untitled as of now, is likely to go on floors this year. “I am doing a psychological-thriller next. I have already written it. The film will go on floors this year. It is a fantastic thriller which will be an actor’s dream role. It won’t be a female-oriented film though,” said Omung.
Omung made his directorial debut with Priyanka Chopra starrer Mary Kom, which went on to bag National Award.
His latest film Sarbjit is based on Sarabjit Singh, an Indian national, who was jailed in Pakistan on the charge of spying.
The film stars Randeep Hooda in the titular role, while Aishwarya Rai Bachchan plays his sister Dalbir Kaur.
