I Am Drawn To Realistic Stories: Neeraj Pandey

    Real-life stories have often provided plot points to director Neeraj Pandey be it A Wednesday, Special 26 or his upcoming Akshay Kumar-starrer Baby, about a spy mission.

    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 of Baby was 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 Baby is 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 said.

    Neeraj has also given a fresh look to his other starcast be it Anupam Kher or 'Chashme Badddoor' actress Tapsee Pannu.

    "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.
