The action thriller, which stars John Abraham and Shruti Haasan as lead protagonists, has Kamat portraying the villain of the movie and also credits him as the director.
According to Mid-day, the filmmakers revaled, “We have already told Nishikant [Kamat] that we are going to sign him for our next film. He is such a good actor, we can think of casting him in our film.”

He is a very good director as well as actor. Being a capable actor and filmmaker he knows how to bring out the best from another actor”.
