Neeraj Pandey on producing Operation Romeo: If the message resonates strongly, why not talk about it?

Neeraj Pandey has returned as a producer once again, this time remaking the Malayalam movie, Ishq. The director has now talked about the reasons for making a movie about moral policing. 

Talking to Indian Express, the filmmaker said that they are talking about a situation and are putting up a topic for discussion. He added that what happens next does not bother him.

“If it resonates strongly, then why not talk about it? That’s the simple agenda of making a film. Everyone has the power of opinion. Fair enough.” He further added that they are doing their job of telling a good story and a topic that needs to be discussed. 

The filmmaker also talked about the cast of the film, saying that it added a visual of a fresh casting to the movie. He reveals that the first time Sharad Kelkar auditioned for him was for Rustom, and he had been waiting for a film to work with him. Bhumika Chawla, on the other hand, appeared in Pandey's MS Dhoni: The Untold Story. 

Operation Romeo is the Hindi remake of the 2019 Malayalam film Ishq. The original stars Shane Nigam, Ann Sheetal, Shine Tom Chacko and Leona Lishoy. The Hindi remake, which released on April 22 is helmed by Shashant Shah has received mixed reviews.  

The story follows a couple on a romantic drive, before their night is turned into a nightmare after two people who claim to be police officers enter their life. The movie stars Sidhant Gupta and Vedika Pinto in the lead roles. 

The movie, bankrolled by Friday Filmworks and Plan C Studios, is available in theatres.
