After the success of NH 10, now the makers are planning to make it as a series and next film of this series is NH 12.
Confirming this, Madhu Mantena of Phantom films, that co-produced NH 10, said, “We’re very pleased with the response that this film has generated and are ready to take it forward. The tentative title is ‘NH 12’ and it will be the second in a series of road-films that Phantom intends to make in the next few years.”
When asked if director Navdeep Singh and actress-producer Anushka Sharma will return in ‘NH 12’, Madhu said that it’s too early to comment on that. “We’ve finalised the deal with Eros just yesterday and our yet to finalise the talent. We should have clarity in the coming months.”
NH 12 is the highway that connects Jabalpur in Madhya Pradesh to Jaipur in Rajasthan and a source familiar with the development said that the film will explore the bootlegging business prevalent in the region.
“The idea is to make a franchisee out of road films, a genre that’s under-utilised in Bollywood, but one that has a lot of potential. ‘NH 12’ will explore another dark theme,” Madhu added.
