Mumbai: Anushka Sharma is the latest to join the bandwagon of Bollywood actors turning producers with her upcoming film `NH 10`, co-produced by Phantom.
Anushka, who plays the lead in Navdeep Singh`s `NH 10`, liked the script so much that she has decided to co-produce it. At the age of 25, Anushka is the youngest actor-producer on the block.
"I am thrilled to get a chance to do this so early on in my career. And I couldn`t have found a better project than `NH-10` to kick-start this new phase in my film journey. This is my second film after `Bombay Velvet` with Phantom... It’s a blast working with them," Anushka said.
"It is going to be super-exciting working together again on what promises to be an explosive film," she said.
Apart from this, Anushka has two big films up for release - Rajkumar Hirani`s `Peekay` with Aamir Khan and Anurag Kashyap`s `Bombay Velvet` with Ranbir Kapoor.
Film director Vikramaditya Motwane of Phantom says, "We love to partner with the talent we work with. It is extremely reassuring for us when the lead actor wants to join hands, to back an outstanding script like `NH10`. We strongly believe in the script."
Navdeep Singh is set to direct his second film post his critically acclaimed debut `Manorama six feet under`. The film is full with edge of the seat action and thrills, when a road trip goes wrong.
Being shot this winter across the northern plains around Delhi, `NH 10` will release on September 12 next year.
Phantom Production was floated by four filmmakers Anurag Kashyap, Vikramaditya Motwane, Vikas Bahl and Madhu Mantena.
