Touted to be an action thriller, Om: The Battle Within marks the first collaboration between Aditya Roy Kapur and Sanjana Sanghi. Om: The Battle Within will also be Sanjana Sanghi’s second film after she debuted as Kizie Bose in Dil Bechara in July, alongside late actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
Helmed by debutant director Kapil Verma, the son of action director Tinu Verma, Om: The Battle Within is expected to release in the summer of 2021. The month of release has not been confirmed as yet.
The screenplay of the film has been written by Akshat R Saluja and Niket Pandey, while the cinematography has been handled by Vineet Malhotra. Prabhat Thakur is in charge of the art direction.
Speaking about the film to DNA, 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.”
The film was announced on November 16, the same day as Kapur’s 35th birthday. The remaining cast members have yet to be announced.
Om: The Battle Within is being produced by Zee Studios, as well as Ahmed Khan and Shaira Khan.
