Anushka Sharma turns producer, joins hands with Phantom for NH-10

MUMBAI: Anushka Sharma is joining hands with Phantom to produce Navdeep Singh’s next film titled, NH 10. Anushka, who plays the lead in the film, liked the script so much that she has decided to co-produce it with Phantom.


The deal makes the 25-year-old actor the youngest actor-producers on the block taking her to a different league altogether vis-?-vis her contemporaries. With two of the biggest films Rajkumar Hirani’s Peekay with Aamir Khan and Anurag Kashyap’s Bombay Velvet with Ranbir Kapoor, NH 10 will be her third release next year.


Continuing with their content driven films like Lootera, which released this year, Phantom will back Navdeep Singh to direct his second film post his critically acclaimed debut Manorama 6 Feet Under. The film is full with edge of the seat action and thrills, when a road trip goes wrong. It brings together a very talented crew of technicians including international action directors.


Speaking on her new role, Anushka says, “I’m thrilled to get a chance to do this so early in my career. I couldn’t have found a better project than NH-10 to kick-start this new phase in my film journey. This is my second film after Bombay Velvet with Phantom, and it’s a blast working with them. It’s going to be super-exciting working together again on what promises to be an explosive film.”


Vikramaditya Motwane, who is a part of the Phantom team, is excited to partner with the young actor. He says, “We love to partner with the talent we work with. It’s extremely reassuring for us when the lead actor wants to join hands, to back an outstanding script like NH10. We strongly believe in the script and know that Navdeep is going to make a kickass film out of it”.


The film will be shot this winter across the northern plains around Delhi, NH 10 and will release on 12 September, 2014.
