Diana Penty will be seen her in her first action-drama venture, which is being produced by KriArj Entertainment and John Abraham.
The movie, tentatively titled Shantivaan, is a gripping action thriller, based on the real-life events that took place in 1998, around the five nuclear bomb test explosions conducted by India at the Indian Army’s Pokhran Test Range in Jaisalmer.
Talking to a news daily Diana said, “I read the script and liked it instantly. It’s quick paced, intelligent and what’s most exciting for me is that it’s based on a true story. To be able to tell a story of such great national importance and recreate history in a way, is what really drew me to this film. And yes, this is my first film in the action-drama genre. The idea has always been to try something different each time, and I’m glad I’ve had the opportunities to do so.”
John Abraham had previously said about the film, “”I have never been in a hurry to produce films, I have been reading and searching for subjects that are disruptive yet engaging, stories must resonate with current social political economic mood of the country and finding stories that reflect this takes time, this film fits perfectly with my pursuit.”
The shooting for the movie will start from the end of May and will release on 8 December.
Apart from this, Diana is also rumoured to be starring in the sequel of “Happy Bhaag Jayegi” which is produced by Anand L Rai. Diana has also just finished shooting “Lucknow Central” with Farhan Akhtar.
