After garnering immense appreciation and standing ovation for his last release Mukkabaaz, Vineet Kumar Singh will be next seen in Adhar which will be produced by the National Award-winning Newton filmmaker Manish Mundra.
Titled Adhar, it will be directed by another National Award winner, Bengali filmmaker Suman Ghosh, whose 2006 film Podokkhep featuring Nandita Das and Soumitra Chatterjee had won in the Best Feature Film in Bengali category.
Confirming the news, Vineet Kumar Singh shares, "Manish sir praised my performance in Mukkabaaz and said that I reminded him of a young Naseer saab (Naseeruddin Shah) in one of my interviews. It’s a huge compliment for me and I love the films he has produced, right from Ankhon Dekhi to Newton. One day I got a call from his office saying that they wanted to narrate a story to me, after which I met director Suman Ghosh and immediately fell in love with the script."
Talking about the film, the actor shares,“Taking a cue from the film’s title Adhar, there are two aspects to it — one: it means base and the other is the Aadhar card and we are exploring both these aspects among many other things that are happening in our society. Manish sir’s films are rooted, which is also the case with this one, but it will also appeal to the masses. After Mukkabaaz, I was looking for the right film and after being offered nearly 100 scripts I finally zeroed down on this one.”
The actor further added, “It’s the story of a common man left behind in the society’s race to development. We will start shooting in December or January at the Bengal-Bihar border and in Jharkhand. I will start prepping closer to the shooting date,”
