Mumbai: Director Navdeep Singh says the action element in his movie "NH10" is marked by how real it is.
The film stars Anushka Sharma and Neil Bhoopalam.
"Anushka and Neil did workshops together and I must say their chemistry looks great in the film. As far as action is concerned, it is not glamourised in this film. It's very realistic action and Anushka took training for that," Singh said.
A thriller, "NH10" is co-produced by Phantom Productions, Eros International and Clean Slate Films. This is Anushka's debut production venture.
While it has been said that "NH10" is a dark film, Singh says it's because "reality in small towns is dark".
"Our reality itself is dark, but I would like to say the reality in small towns is so dark that it gets difficult to capture it on the small screen. And as far as the message in the film is concerned, I feel every film has its own message in it -- and that is for the audience to see," he added.
