The echoes of darkness

Promos of the upcoming film NH 10 speaks a lot about the thrill it promises to serve to the audience this weekend. To, however, make this excitement reach its peak, the cast of the film Anushka Sharma, Neil Bhoopalam and Darshan Kumar were in the city to promote the film.


Directed by Navdeep Singh; produced by Vikramaditya Motwane, Anurag Kashyap, Vikas Bahl, Anushka Sharma, Sunil Lulla and Krishna Lulla, NH 10 is a story of a couple Meera and Arjun, who are professionals living in Gurgaon, whose road trip on National Highway 10 goes awry, after a series of unpleasant events.

On being asked about producing a movie for the first time Anushka said, “I had never read anything as unique as this script. I am producing it for its content. I feel so strongly for this film that I felt like backing it in this way. This movie is about how badly someone can be pushed before he or she decides to strike back.”

On the other hand, Neil Bhoopalam, who has been a part of projects of Ungli and 24, said on a funny note, “I think this film has a bigger set of producers than the cast.”
 On being asked about his chemistry with Anushka, he said, “Anushka is very generous. She shares her sandwich and coffee too (laughed). We worked to enhance the scenes and had done a lot of pre-preparation and there was no production hassle from her end.”

Darshan, on being questioned about his drastic change in role from a supporting husband in Mary Kom to a negative role in NH 10, said, “Whatever I learned from Priyanka Chopra, I applied here. Both Anushka and Priyanka are very passionate and it was a very nice journey for me. In real life, I really respect women and I am a happy-go-lucky person.”

Vikramaditya Motwane, on the other hand, talked about the adult certification of the film by Censor Board. He said, “Don’t treat us like children anymore because the audience is intelligent enough. There can be an age criteria where only a particular age-group can watch the movie but banning a movie or restricting its content is not good.”

Notably, the film was scheduled for release on March 6. However due to censoring issues it is now releasing on March 13.
