Sanjana Sanghi who made her debut in Bollywood as a leading lady with late actor Sushant Singh Rajput's Dil Bechara, has signed her second film. The actress has been roped in opposite Aditya Roy Kapur in Kapil Verma's action film Om: The Battle Within. The makers had officially announced this film on Aditya Roy Kapur's birthday earlier this month.
Meanwhile, Sanjana Sanghi is excited to be a part of Om: The Battle Within and spilled the beans about her character in the film.
Sanjana Sanghi Is Excited For The New Challenge
The actress told Mumbai Mirror, "Getting to delve into the action genre so early on, is something I view as an absolute honour and have immense gratitude for to my producers, Ahmed Khan, Zee Studios and my director Kapil for the potential they have seen in me being able to pull of such a unique part in our film. After exploring many scripts and possibilities for a while, Om felt just right since it was the spectrum jump I was looking for in terms of throwing myself into an entirely unchartered territory of a big commercial actioner being executed in a never-seen-before way that is going to present me with new and exciting challenges."
'Getting To Work With Adi Is The Best Part,' Says Sanjana Sanghi
Sanjana revealed that her character in the film is named Kavya and continued, "My character Kavya is a girl I know each of us young girls in India aspires to be. She is confident, extremely hard working and sharp, empathetic, brave and a crucial tenet of our film. She's nothing like we've ever seen before on celluloid. I'm so excited to bring her to life, and I know I'm going to learn so much from her I'm doing tons of action in the film, and various kinds of training and prep for the same is ongoing. It's testing and pushing me both physically and mentally, but is so thrilling! Getting to work with Adi is the best part of it all, he's working so hard for the film and is going to shine."
The Makers Reveal Why They Cast Sanjana Sanghi In The Film
"In her debut film, Sanjana handled her role with great maturity and in Om, the character what she plays is of a young girl who handles great responsibilities and she is perfectly suited for it," director Kapil Verma was quoted as saying.
Om: The Battle Within will be shot in India and abroad, with shooting expected to end by March next year. The film is slated to release in second half of 2021.
