This will be Sanghi’s second film after debuting alongside late actor Sushant Singh Rajput in Dil Bechara in July.
Trade analyst Tarun Adarsh has announced that the film will be shot in three cities in India and one international location.
According to a report by DNA, Sanghi said she was looking forward to working out of her comfort zone, “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 & exciting challenges.”
Further, Sanghi describes her character Kavya as confident, hard-working, and sharp.
Debutant Kapil Verma, son of action director Tinu Verma, will direct Om-The Battle Within.
Bankrolled by Zee Studios along with Ahmed Khan and Shaira Khan, the film’s initial announcement was made on Kapur’s 35th birthday. Shooting is expected to begin in December, and the film is expected to release in the second half of next year.
Meanwhile, Kapur marked his last appearance in the anthology film Ludo by Anurag Basu which premiered on Netflix on November 13.
