After the success of NH10, it seems as if Anushka Sharma is gearing up for a sequel to her critically acclaimed drama thriller.
The Hindustan Times reported that Eros International and Phantom Films, producers behind the Anushka Sharma-Neil Bhoopalam-starrerNH10, have confirmed their plans for the sequel, tentatively titled NH12.
NH10, Anushka’s debut film as producer, tells the story of a young couple whose road trip goes awry after an encounter with a group of violent criminals.
The film’s title refers to the 403 km long National Highway 10 that starts from Delhi, passes through Haryana via Bahadurgarh, Rohtak, Hisar, Fatehabad, Sirsa and ends at the Pakistan border in Punjab.
Madhu Mantena from Phantom Films confirmed to Mumbai Mirror that the idea was to launch a franchise of road films, of which NH10 was the first and NH12 will be the second, ”The idea is to make a franchise out of road films, a genre that’s under-utilised in Bollywood, but one that has a lot of potential. NH12 will explore another dark theme.”
Though NH10 was based on honour killing, the makers haven’t dropped any hints about the theme of NH12, named after the highway that connects Jabalpur in Madhya Pradesh to Jaipur in Rajasthan.
