Amidst the major line up of projects, Sunir Kheterpal is all set for yet another major release. An exclusive report in Peeping Moon states that the producer has got Taapsee Pannu and Rakul Preet Singh on board for two of his forthcoming films. Both these films will be produced under the banner Athena ENM and are expected to be in the pipeline for 2022.
If these reports are to be believed, the forthcoming films that will feature Taapsee Pannu and Rakul Preet Singh are said to be female-centric scripts. While the exact details are not yet revealed, we hear that these untitled ventures will have the two of them as leading ladies playing main roles in the films. The film featuring Taapsee, is expected to be directed by Vijay Lalwani who has previously directed the popular psychological film Karthik Calling Karthik, which had Farhan Akhtar and Deepika Padukone in the lead. The Thappad actress will be seen in a never-seen-before avatar of a vengeful lady.
On the other hand, the Rakul film will mark the Bollywood directorial debut of Nikhil Mahajan, known for his Marathi film Godavari which also premiered at Cannes Film Festival. While the former is expected to be a serious venture, the latter is said to be a light-hearted drama set against the backdrop of Mumbai city. Readers may be aware that while Rakul will be collaborating with Sunir Kheterpal for the first time, Taapsee has previously worked with the producer before in the Amitabh Bachchan starrer Badla.
We hear that both the films are currently in the pre-production stage. While the Rakul Preet Singh starrer will go on floors in July 2022, the other film too is expected to start before August 2022.
