After some lousy films, our action king Sunny Deol will get back to form in his upcoming film Naksha. Naksha meaning 'map' promises to be a wholesome entertainer packaged with a lot of action, humor and pure adventure. Giving Sunny company in this adventure trip are Viveik Oberoi and Sameera Reddy.
The title Naksha gives hint of the film being a treasure-hunt adventure. But producer Akshay Bajaj clarifies, "It isn't exactly a treasure-hunt. But the film has a touch of mythology that runs in background in the flashback portions. Jackie Shroff has an interesting role in the film where he plays an archeologist."
Naksha is directed by Sachin Bajaj who has managed to get together an impressive cast in his debut film. Sachin has earlier assisted Indra Kumar in Mann and Aashiq and south director Shankar on Jeans. The film also introduces a new girl Mridula Chandrashekhar.
The film has almost reached its completion. Only last 8 days of shoot are remaining for which the unit is heading towards New Zealand. Apart from that the film is shot in Mumbai, Manali and Bangkok. The audience can expect some daredevil stunts from Allan Amin (of Dhoom fame). Pritam handles the music.
"We are planning for a July release", adds Akshay Bajaj and when we prod him more on the storyline, he explains. "The two protagonists in the film are in search of something. What's that thing is for you to find out".
