R Balki next is a thriller with Dulquer Salman and Sunny Deol


Filmmaker R. Balki, who directed thought provoking films like Cheeni Kum, Paa, Padman, Ki & Ka, is joining forces with Dulquer Salman for his next directorial venture, a thriller also starring Sunny Deol, Pooja Bhatt and Shreya Dhanwanthary.

Talking about his new project, Balki said, "After months of waiting, for me, it is exciting to start shooting anything. And to make a film in a genre that I haven't attempted before is even more exciting. I have had the idea for a long time but never quite got around to writing it, and while it's fundamentally a thriller, it banks so much on these four stunning performers. I just can't wait to get into the edit room."

On getting Sunny Deol to join the ensemble, R Balki couldn’t hide his excitement: “I am ecstatic to be working with Sunny, an actor whose booming screen presence conveys so much. Am glad he is back and hoping this new adventure will add a new dimension to his glorious filmography.”

The upcoming film is expected to be released in early 2022.
