Director Kapil Verma, son of action director Tinu Verma, has sought the lead actress for his debut film ‘Om – The Battle Within’. Sanjana Sanghi has been chosen as the lead actress for this film which was announced on the birthday of the actor Aditya Roy Kapoor. Sanjana has so far played the lead actress in only one well-known film, ‘Dil Bechara’, and people came to know Sanjana from there.
Ahmed Khan, the producer of the film ‘Om- The Battle Within’, has selected Sanjana only after seeing her work in the film ‘Dil Bechara’. In this film released on OTT this year, Sanjana played the character of Kizzie Basu, who is battling cancer. The film was in the news for being the last film of the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput. Viewers liked the film but it received mixed responses from critics.
According to Ahmed, Sanjana has played this character in ‘Dil Bechara’ very brilliantly, so she was selected for this film of Kapil. Talking about her character, Sanjana said that she will play a girl named Kavya who is confident, hard-working, smart and brave in the film ‘Om- The Battle Within’.
‘Every Indian young girl can be inspired by this role and this is a character that I have never done before. One of the reasons I am excited to play this character is that I will be seen doing action in it. For this, I have to take many types of training. This will be my mental and physical test. And even more excited that I am going to work with Aditya.’
It has been claimed that Sanjana has read many scripts during the lockdown, but according to her, Kapil’s film ‘Om- The Battle Within’ is what she was looking for. Kapil will start shooting for the film next month and it will be shot in three cities of the country. The shooting of the film will be completed by the month of March and the film may be released in the second half of next year.
