Filmmaker Nikkhil Advani has teamed up with Bhushan Kumar to jointly bankroll a movie featuring Manoj Bajpayee and John Abraham in lead role. To be written and directed by Milap Zaveri, the movie will be a cop-saga. The latest update on the project is that the makers have finalized the female lead for the film. Debutant actress Aisha Sharma has been locked as the leading lady of John Abraham in the thriller. For the uninitiated, Sharma is the sister of actress, Neha Sharma.
While John Abraham will romance Aisha in the movie, well-known Marathi film actress and television host Amruta Khanvilkar has been cast opposite versatile actor Manoj Bajpayee. Though the official title of the film has not been announced as yet, some call it ‘SMJ’. We hope we soon get to know the official title of the movie as it is mounting the floor in mid-March.
Talking about the film, Bhushan Kumar had earlier said, “Milap has the pulse of masses and classes and has written a racy script with extremely powerful scenes and dialogues. John and Manoj are a perfect fit in their respective roles and it is no surprise that they came on board instantly”.
While John Abraham is currently awaiting the release of his forthcoming film ‘Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran’, Manoj Bajpayee, on the other hand, was last seen in ‘Aiyaary’.
