Speaking about the line up of movies from Maddock Films, a source close to the production house told Bollywood Hungama, “Dinesh Vijan is scaling up his production line up and has planned to roll at least six new films this year. This is in addition to his already announced films such as Bhediya, Tehran, and the yet-untitled Laxman Utekar film with Vicky Kaushal and Sara Ali Khan. There’s so much going on at Maddock Films right now, and the energy level out there is at an all-time high. You’ll soon hear multiple announcements coming out of Maddock Films, and mind you, it’s all very exciting.”
The source added that Maddock has already begun shooting for two movies. One of the 6 movies is the newly announced, ‘Sector 36’, a crime thriller which is inspired from the real-life Nithari serial murders. The movie stars Deepak Dobriyal and Vikrant Massey in the lead. The other movie which has kickstarted production stars Huma Qureshi with another young actress in what is believed to be a female centric movie.
Next on the list, to commence filming is John Abraham’s ‘Tehran’, which will be filmed in UK and as of now eyeing a release early in 2023. Dinesh Vijan has also signed on Vaani Kapoor for a socio-comic movie called, ‘Sarvagunn Sampanna’ in which she will be playing a porn-star look alike.
