Actor Vidyut Jammwal has been roped in for romantic action thriller “Khuda Hafiz”, which will be helmed by Faruk Kabir.

The Kumar Mangat Pathak and Abhishek Pathak’s film is based on true incidents. It will be shot in Morocco and Kerala. The casting of the female lead is underway.

Scheduled to release in early 2020, the shooting for the project will start in July this year. The makers have also got on board global experts to choreograph the action sequences, said a statement.

Vidyut is excited about “doing the film based on a real life love story in a very contemporary setting”.

“With incidents based on actual events, this could be one of the biggest and most memorable action thrillers of our time. I am very proud to be part of such a great team to tell a truly gripping tale,” the actor said.

To this, Pathak, known for backing films like the “Pyaar Ka Punchnama” franchise, “Drishyam” and “Raid”, added: “The romantic action thriller genre is always exciting and when a script in that genre is based on true events and has a solid emotional core you have all the elements in place, and with Faruk’s vision and Vidyut doing what he does best, we are really excited about this one.”

A Panorama Studios Production, it will be produced by Kumar Mangat and Abhishek, Aditya Chowksey and Sanjeev Joshi.

Kabir said: “It’s a subject that’s been researched and written over nine months. Vidyut and me are attempting something here that neither of us have done before. So, we will keep our feet on the ground, our vision to the skies and hopefully surprise the audience by giving them more than they expected.”

Actress Mouni Roy: I am getting used to new normal

Mouni-Roy

Actress Mouni Roy, who will soon be seen in the digital film, London Confidential, opposite Purab Kohli, says that lockdown taught her some of the greatest lessons in life.

The actress, who is currently in Dubai, told IANS: “I realised a few things during lockdown that we otherwise never get a chance to sit down and analyse. I have understood that, in reality we need very little to feel happy because happiness is there in the small things of life. At times we just gather a lot of stuff in our house for no reason. In normal life, we tend to engage ourselves in many things that are otherwise irrelevant! If we want, we actually can stay away from such things!”

“I have also realised that as human beings we will come across different emotions like anger and being upset, but it is also very easy to drop these negative emotions if we work on these. If we practice meditation and yoga, and not just read thought-provoking books but apply those thoughts in life. We can get rid of negative emotions. Looking at the bigger picture, we do not even know what actually we are running after! It is like an endless goal, but we do not know where it is heading!” she said.

The actress shot her new film with Purab in London just after the process of unlock started.

While the cast and crew of the film maintained social distancing, Mouni said initially there was a sense of tension on the set.

“There were several rules. We were using disinfectants time and again. Only one department could be present at the set . We were following all of it but in the beginning, there was tension because obviously we have never been used to such rules on a set. Eventually all these became normal. Since I have left Mumbai, I have done seven swab tests! But again, this is part of the new set of rules. I am getting used to the new normal,” shared the actress.

“London Confidential” is directed by Kanwal Sethi and produced by Mohit Chhabra and Ajay Rai.

The story by S. Hussain Zaidi revolves around the search of people from China who are involved in the spread of a virus.

On her character, Mouni said: “Uma, my character who is an R&AW official facing a challenge and racing against time to find the important evidence and a mole in her team. There is a backdrop of pandemic, and of how she cracks the information of another upcoming virus that can create another pandemic situation.”

The film also features Kulraj Randhawa, Sagar Arya, and Diljohn Singh among others and is slated to stream on Zee5.
