Set to begin shooting in December is OM—The Battle Within, the emotional action thriller starring Aditya Roy Kapur. We have a special preview of the film plus we can reveal his co-star!
Excited about this film, Aditya Roy Kapur says, “Last year I was juggling between shooting Malang and Ludo around this time and both the films have received immense love and appreciation. COVID notwithstanding those year has been a special one on the work front. I have been living with OM since a few months now. Looking forward to the journey.”
Backing this movie at the forefront, Shariq Patel, CEO of Zee Studios says, “We are excited to partner with Ahmed Khan for this action-packed thriller helmed by Kapil Verma with Aditya Roy Kapoor in the titular role. Aditya has made some versatile film choices and has already proven his mettle as an action hero. We’re confident that he will play the part with finesse. With a strong emotional storyline with high dosage of action we are set to roll by early next month.”
Producer Ahmed Khan recently gave a mass entertaining hit and is equally elated to be a part of this project. He says, “Yes, Adi will be doing full on action for the first time, he is structurally built for action and this character fits him. This film revolves around emotionally disturbed relationships on the line of duty. Kapil Verma, our director, is set to role this year, and he is extremely ready to jump in his debut with such large action sequences. Adi has started training with specialists of different fields in action since a while.”
Now we can announce the leading lady opposite Aditya Roy Kapur in ‘OM – The Battle Within’ has been found. Producers Zee Studios, Ahmed Khan and Shaira Khan have roped in the beautiful young sensation Sanjana Sanghi as Kavya in the film.
This marks the first association of Aditya and Sanjana as a lead pair.
Talking about the young sensation, Producer Ahmed Khan says, “In her debut film, Sanjana handled her role with great maturity and in OM, the character what she plays is of a young girl who handles great responsibilities and she is perfectly suited for it.”
Talking about her first big action venture, Sanjana says, “Getting to delve into the action genre so early on, is something I view as an absolute honour and have immense gratitude for to my producers, Ahmed Khan, Zee Studios and my director Kapil for the potential they have seen in me being able to pull of such a unique part in our film.After exploring many scripts and possibilities for a while, OM felt just right since it was the spectrum jump I was looking for in terms of throwing myself into an entirely unchartered territory of a big commercial actioner being executed in a never-seen-before way that is going to present me with new & exciting challenges.”
She futher adds that her character Kavya will be an inspiration to the young girls of India. “My character Kavya, is a girl I know each of us young girls in India aspires to be. She is confident, extremely hard working and sharp, empathetic, brave and a crucial tenet of our film. She’s nothing like we’ve ever seen before on celluloid. I’m so excited to bring her to life, and I know I’m going to learn so much from her I’m doing tons of action in the film, and various kinds of training and prep for the same is ongoing. It’s testing and pushing me both physically and mentally, but is so thrilling! Getting to work with Adi is the best part of it all, he’s working so hard for the film and is going to shine”, says Sanjana.
The film will be shot in 3 cities in India and one international location. The makers are hoping to complete the shooting of the film by March and plan to release in the second half of 2021.
