Actor Vidya Balan, who will next be seen in ‘Neeyat’ recently got candid about working on her new project with the star cast of a murder mystery. During an exclusive conversation with ANI, she said, “You will experience something extraordinary after seeing the movie because of the exceptional star cast, which consists of many talented performers.”
Helmed by Anu Menon, the movie also stars Ram Kapoor, Rahul Bose, Neeraj Kabi, Shahana Goswami, Amrita Puri, Dipannita Sharma, Niki Walia, Shashank Arora, Prajakta Koli and Danesh Razvi. ‘Neeyat’ marks Vidya’s return to theatres after her successful digital stint with ‘Shakuntala Devi’, ‘Sherni’ and ‘Jalsa’. “I am very excited and watch me in theatres,” she added.
It is a suspense-thriller in which Vidya Balan plays an unexpected investigator looking into mysterious deaths at a billionaire’s party where no one is what they seem and everyone has a secret. The story revolves around billionaire Ashish Kapoor (Ram Kapoor) and his close-knit family and friends, where everyone is caught up in their own web of secrets. The setting is the stunningly magnificent highlands of Scotland. In this classic whodunnit, investigator Mira Rao (Vidya Balan) must unearth the hidden motivations and riddles after Ashish Kapoor is found dead at his own party.
The movie is directed by Anu Menon who last directed Vidya Balan in the 2020 superhit ‘Shakuntala Devi’, based on the life and times of the lady known as the human-computer. A number of episodes of the critically acclaimed worldwide television series “Killing Eve” were directed most recently by Anu Menon. Produced by the Vikram Malhotra-led Abundantia Entertainment, which also produced Shakuntala Devi, and co-produced by Prime Video, ‘Neeyat’ will be out in theatres on July 7. (ANI)
