A day after Aditya Roy Kapur and Sanjana Sanghi starrer ‘OM – The Battle Within’ began its shooting schedule, in a surprise move, the makers on Friday dropped the lead actor’s first look from the film.
Looking menacing in his first look poster, Aditya is seen in a rugged action avatar.
Bulked up for his upcoming film, Aditya Roy Kapur looks all set to go into battle with all guns blazing in the first look of the film.
In the poster, the actor showcases a magnificently ripped physique with a macho demeanour, unlike any portrayal seen from him so far.
Along with Aditya, the charming actress Sanjana Sanghi too will be portraying a strong edgy character embracing it with her glamorous quotient.
The film which is set to be an action thriller is helmed by Kapil Verma and produced by Zee Studios, Ahmed Khan and Shaira Khan.
Earlier, speaking about the film which was announced on the special occasion of his birthday last month, Aditya Roy Kapur had said, “Last year I was juggling between shooting Malang and Ludo around this time and both the films have received immense love and appreciation. COVID notwithstanding those years has been a special one on the work front. I have been living with OM for a few months now and to see it being announced on my birthday makes it extremely special. Looking forward to the journey.”
Sharing her excitement on bagging the role and being paired opposite Aditya, Sanjana said in a statement, “Getting to delve into the action genre so early on, is something I view as an absolute honour and have immense gratitude for to my producers, Ahmed Khan, Zee Studios and my director Kapil for the potential they have seen in me being able to pull off such a unique part in our film. After exploring many scripts and possibilities for a while, OM felt just right since it was the spectrum jump I was looking for in terms of throwing myself into an entirely unchartered territory of a big commercial actioner being executed in a never-seen-before way that is going to present me with new and exciting challenges.”
Talking about her character Kavya, Sanjana further shared, “My character Kavya, is a girl I know each of us young girls in India aspires to be. She is confident, extremely hard working and sharp, empathetic, brave and a crucial tenet of our film. She’s nothing like we’ve ever seen before on celluloid. I’m so excited to bring her to life, and I know I’m going to learn so much from her I’m doing tons of action in the film, and various kinds of training and prep for the same is ongoing. It’s testing and pushing me both physically and mentally, but is so thrilling! Getting to work with Adi is the best part of it all, he’s working so hard for the film and is going to shine.”
