GUL PANAG TO ESSAY THE MAIN NEGATIVE LEAD IN NAMAN NITIN MUKESH’S DIRECTORIAL DEBUT
Actress Gul Panag who made headlines after having kept her pregnancy under wraps, will not just be playing mom to her six-month-old son Nihal but also will be playing reel mom in Naman Nitin Mukesh’s untitled thriller drama. The film also features Neil Nitin Mukesh and Adah Sharma in pivotal roles.
Last week the news of Gul playing a sports coach in Karan Johar’s college drama ‘Student Of The Year 2’ made its way to the internet and now we have learnt that the well maintained actress has bagged the main negative lead in Naman Nitin Mukesh’s directorial debut.
Talking about her role Gul Panag states, “This is the first time ever that I’m dabbling in the grey shade spectrum. I was always apprehensive to play a part that required me to look much older than what I really am but the script just drew me in.”
Naman Nitin Mukesh adds, “We wanted to cast someone who doesn’t have a pre-conceived perception in the minds of the audience and the trade and someone who hasn’t attempted playing a negative character previously. We wanted to bring forth the unpredictable layering with her character and she can effortlessly pull off the multiple shades of grey.”
NNM Films and Madan Paliwal of MIRAJ will jointly produce the thriller drama which is being directed by Naman Nitin Mukesh and written by Neil Nitin Mukesh and features an ensemble casting. The mahurat shot will be inaugurated at Mukesh’s 25th Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations and thereafter the film will be shot in Alibaug and Lonavla over a span of 3 months.
