All set to don the hat of a producer, Vivek Oberoi says, “I instantly liked the high-concept idea that Vishal presented and I decided to back the project immediately. I’m sure it’s going to be an exciting journey with Prernaa, team Mandiraa and Girish (Johar) and we hope to present an engaging piece of cinema to the audiences.”
Vishal also added, “I always believe in exploring new concepts. With this film, I hope to bring something new in my favourite genre, whodunit thriller. Prerna V Arora is a passionate producer and has a glorious box office record. And I share a very special bond with Vivek. It feels great to collaborate with both of them.”
Producer Girish Johar, who will also be backing the project, says, “Along with producers Kussum, Reshabh D. Saraf and Keyur Pandya (of Mandiraa Entertainemnt), I’m super excited and keen to share this story with our audiences. Vishal is a very gifted talent and with this film, we’ve a winner on our hands.”
Vivek was last seen in the Prime Minister Narendra Modi biopic titled PM Narendra Modi. The actor has been active in the south and was seen in Malayalam film Lucifer, Telugu film Vinaya Vidheya Rama and Kannada film Rustum last year.
Vivek had recently blamed Bollywood for its “power play”, “ego trips”, “manipulation” and lack of acknowledgement for deserving talents (mostly those hailing from outside the industry) in a powerful post on social media shared after the untimely demise of actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
He’d written, “I hope our Industry that calls itself a family, does some serious introspection, we need to change for the better, we need to b***h less and care more, less power play and more grace and large heartedness, less ego trips and more acknowledgement for deserving talents, this family needs to truly become a family...a place where talent is nurtured and not crushed, a place where an artist feels appreciated and not manipulated. This is a wake up call for all of us.”
Talking about attending Sushant’s funeral, he also wrote, “Being at Sushant’s cremation today was so heartbreaking. I truly wish I could have shared my personal experience and helped him ease his pain. I have been through my own journey of pain, it can be very dark and lonely. But death is never the answer, suicide can never be a solution.”
