The producers of the Anushka Sharma-Neil Bhoopalam-starrer NH10, Eros International and Phantom Films, confirmed on Sunday they planned to make a sequel to the movie under the title NH12.
Madhu Mantena from Phantom Films confirmed the title and added that they also planned a series of road films. "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. NH12 will explore another dark theme," Madhu told Mumbai Mirror.
NH10, which also featured Darshan Kumaar, marked the production debut of Anushka Sharma. Directed by Navdeep Singh, NH10 traced the story of a woman caught in a series of scary incidents in a lawless land and how she got back on her feet to strike the evil-doers.
Talking about NH10, Anushka, who played the lead in the film, had earlier said, "I just want to be part of films wherein I am able to contribute something as an actor. I would just like to be part of good cinema and good films."
Whether the Anushka, Neil and Darshan will reprise their roles from NH10 is yet to be decided. An official statement regarding the sequel is likely to be released next week.
