John Abraham & Sharvari Wagh’s ‘Vedaa’ First Look’s Response: Thrilled Nikkhil Advani
Exclusive: Nikkhil Advani ‘Thrilled with the Superb Response’ to John Abraham-Sharvari Wagh’s ‘Vedaa’ First Look
The first look of John Abraham and Sharvari’s starrer ‘Vedaa’ was released recently. Its director, Nikkhil Advani, shared about the response it received.
John Abraham and Nikkhil Advani have worked previously on the 2019 action thriller film ‘Batla House’. The actor-director duo is collaborating again for the upcoming and highly anticipated film ‘Vedaa’, co-starring Sharvari Wagh. Advani exclusively told Pinkvilla that he is ‘thrilled’ by the response its first look received.
Nikkhil Advani on ‘Vedaa’s’ First Look Response
Nikkhil Advani exclusively told Pinkvilla about the response to the first look of his upcoming movie ‘Vedaa’. He said that he is ‘thrilled’ by the response.
He said: “I am thrilled with the superb response that the first look has received.”
Advani then spoke about how long it took him and his writer Aseem Arora to write the script, based around two incidents.
“It took me and Aseem Arora six years to work out a script based on two horrific incidents, a script that would have the same impact that, ‘Batla House’, my previous collaboration with John Abraham had”, he said.
Advani then stated that Sharvari Wagh, the film’s actress, almost broke down on various days she had to reach ‘uncomfortable’ places.
“There were days when Sharvari had to really keep herself from breaking down when we started shooting. As a young girl she had to reach places that were very uncomfortable”, he said.
Advani further said that the film ticks all the boxes of being inspired by true events but it’s not a remake and instead an original film.
He said: “Vedaa is a story of a girl and her cynical, bitter mentor seeking justice from the highest voices of power in our country. While it ticks the boxes of the “inspired by true stories” subjects that I gravitate towards, it was challenging for me to do the level of action that John as an actor and character performs in the film.”
‘Vedaa’ First Look and Release Date
Recently, the first look of ‘Vedaa’ dropped on the internet. It features John Abraham in a full-on beard look with scars on his face as he holds what appears to be a Khukhri in hand. Behind him, we can see a girl, played by Sharvari Wagh, as tears roll down her eyes.
The caption of the post read: “She needed a savior. She got a weapon. Releasing in cinemas on July 12th!”
Apart from that, another first-look poster featured the backside of John. He is loaded with a long weapon along with a pistol in his hand. The makers also dropped a poster featuring Sharvari’s back as she held a pistol in her hand. ‘Vedaa’ is slated to release theatrically on July 12th, 2024.
John Abraham and Sharvari’s Upcoming Projects
John was last seen playing the villain in Siddharth Anand’s ‘Pathaan’ with Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone. The film was a massive critical and commercial success.
Apart from ‘Vedaa’, he is also doing films like ‘The Diplomat’, ‘Tehran’ and ‘Tariq’.
Sharvari, on the other hand, made her feature film acting debut in 2021 with ‘Bunty Aur Babli 2’. Apart from ‘Vedaa’, she is also doing ‘Maharaja’ with Aamir Khan’s son Junaid Khan. She is also a part of the YRF spy universe with Alia Bhatt for an action flick.
