Zuber K. Khan, the Naagin 3 actor, is all set to start shooting for Nyaay: The Justice, a film reportedly inspired by the life of late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
Incidentally, a co-producer of the film is Sarla A. Saraogi, whose husband Ashok M. Saraogi represents Sushant’s ex-manager Shruti Modi in the ongoing investigations into the actor’s death.
“The story mostly focuses on both Rhea and Sushant’s lives — their chemistry, their affair living together and all that. ‘Nyaay: The Justice’ not only talks about justice for SSR, but justice for Rhea as well, and whoever else is getting into this case. The film speaks about justice, even though the verdict is yet to be out on Sushant’s case in real life,” Zuber was quoted as saying in media reports.
He plays a character inspired by late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who he claims to have personally known. “I will be playing Sushant’s character. I am privileged to play Sushant, even though we were not in touch lately. But we were in touch five years back. However, the names of the characters would be different in the film. This film will be my tribute to Sushant,” informed the actor.
Actress Shreya Shukla will play a character inspired by Sushant’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, who is an accused in his death case, while the rest of the casting for the film is still to be finalized.
Directed by Dilip Gulati, “Nyaay: The Justice” is expected to go on floors within a week, and release within this year. Apart from Sarla A. Saraogi, the film is also backed by Rahul Sharma.
