The director says it is just a coincidence that he explores such
subjects in his movies.
"I don't know... It could be because dramas are set in those
kind of spaces. It's more like a coincidence. I like making films
on realistic issues," Neeraj told.
The filmmaker said the script ofBabywas
there in his mind from quite sometime.
"The story was there in my mind for sometime. I started working
on the story after finishing my novel 'Ghalib Danger'. The film is
based on a few articles that I have read and remembered over a
certain period of time. There was a germ which I wanted to pursue
and Babyis the result of that," he said.
It is the second time that Neeraj has teamed up with Akshay
after Special 26.
"It is obvious that our previous experience has been good for us
to come together. Akshay has gone to a totally different level with
his performance in the film. We are very proud of his performance
in the film. The actions which he did are very realistic," he
Neeraj has also given a fresh look to his other starcast be it
Anupam Kher or 'Chashme Badddoor' actress Tapsee
"I wanted to give them a very fresh look for this film and I
wanted to shed their set image too," he said. The director is next
helming a biopic on Indian cricket skipper MS Dhoni, which stars
Sushant Singh Rajput in the titular role.
The film will hit theatres on October 22.
