Anushka Sharma's 'NH 10' hits a roadblock again
With her film 'Bombay Velvet' now pushed to next year, Anushka Sharma's plans for 'NH 10' seem to have gone for a toss
Anushka Sharma may be in the eye of a storm due to her cricketer beau Virat Kohli’s dismal performance in England, but the actress is also facing a professional dilemma.
The star’s maiden production, NH 10, was slated to release in September this year, but it was pushed ahead to 2015 as she had two big projects — Bombay Velvet with Ranbir Kapoor and PK with Aamir Khan — releasing in November and December respectively.
As a producer and actor in NH10, Anushka clearly needed a time gap to market and promote the road thriller. It was, therefore, decided to postpone NH 10 to next year. Now with Bombay Velvet pushed to May 2015, her plans for NH 10 seem to have gone for a toss.
Says a source, “The shoot of NH 10 was wrapped up in Jodhpur in May. But since Anushka has two films lined up, the idea was not to clutter her releases. They didn’t want the actress’s films to release back-to-back. So the film was pushed to 2015.” Directed by Navdeep Singh, NH 10, has Neil Bhoopalam (Aditya Singhania of the TV series 24) as Anushka’s co-star.
Adds the source, “Bombay Velvet’s director Anurag Kashyap’s sudden announcement took everyone unawares. Now a release date for NH10 has to be finalised keeping in mind this new development. Besides, Anushka is also part of Dil Dhadakne Do, which releases in June 2015 just after Bombay Velvet. So now she has to look for a suitable release date for NH 10.”
Anushka’s spokesperson says, “Nothing has been finalised as of now. The film is in post-production and it will release on the best possible date.”
