‘Gully Boy’ star Siddhant Chaturvedi is reportedly in talks with ‘Mom’ (2017) director Ravi Udyawar for a full-on action project. It is backed by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment.
Box Office Worldwide reports that Chaturvedi has already commenced boxing training for the film. It is said that the team have shot a special video for the movie’s announcement.
A source was cited in the publication saying, “Siddhant’s date diary has gone awry due to the lockdown and will have to reschedule all his films. Out of three films he has in hands, debutant director Varun V Sharma’s Bunty Aur Babli 2 is almost completed and has only a song remaining which will be shot in a few weeks at Yash Raj Studios keeping safety measures in place. Shakun’s Dharma production is expected to roll once normalcy returns and will be filmed in one go. Since Siddhant’s action film will be mounted on a large scale with most outdoor sequences outside of India, it’s expected to get off the ground only after shootings in foreign is allowed. Although the makers haven’t locked a timeline, they are expecting to start it in December or January 2021.”
The film is said to be about revenge with some slick and energetic fast-paced action sequences.
