Anushka Sharma to turn producer for NH 10

Actor Anushka Sharma will turn producer for NH 10, billed as edge of the seat action thriller about a road trip that goes wrong.

NH 10 is director Navdeep Singh’s second film, after Manorama 6 Feet Under, and will be produced by Eros International Media Limited (Eros International), Phantom Films and Anushka Sharma’s Clean Slate Production. Anushka will also star in the film.

Says Vikramaditya Motwane of Phantom Films, “NH10 is a superb script, and we have a tremendous director in Navdeep Singh. We are excited about our partners on the film and look forward to making a kick-ass film.”

Adds Anushka Sharma, “I’m doubly thrilled about NH-10, as it’s a superb role and it also kick-starts this new phase in my film journey. This is my second film after Bombay Velvet with Phantom, and it’s a blast working with them. It’s going to be super-exciting working together again on what promises to be an explosive film.”

The film will have a crew of technicians including international action directors headed by Armin Sauer, who has done stunt work in The Bourne Supremacy, V for Vendetta and The Constant Gardner among other films.

Being shot this winter across the northern plains around Delhi, NH 10 will release 12 September 2014.
