Anushka Sharma to produce Akshat Varmas directorial debut

After the success of her maiden production venture NH10, Bollywood's youngest producer Anushka Sharma has finally locked in on her next venture. In fact the actress will be producing Delhi Belly writer Akshat Verma's directorial debut.

Interestingly this comes after UTV that was initially set to produce Akshat's film backed out of the project stating that the budgets far exceeded what was planned. Confirming the same Karnesh Sharma, (Anushka's brother and partner in the production house) stated that while he has known Akshat for a while now he had initially liked the concept of the film ever since it was recited to another production house, and now he along with Anushka would be producing the film under their banner Clean Slate Films. As for Anushka featuring in the film like NH10, Karnesh denied that she would be acting in the film stating that the film with Akshat woluld feature a new cast.

However dates for when filming of Akshat's yet untitled venture begins are unavailable, with speculation that the film would commence after Anushka's second production venture that will be directed and scripted by the NH10 duo Navdeep Singh and Sudip Sharma.
