The two actors will be seen together in Shantivaan

Diana Penty will be seen her in her first action-drama venture, which is being produced by KriArj Entertainment and John Abraham. 

The movie, tentatively titled Shantivaan, is an action thriller, based on the real life events that took place in 1998, around the five nuclear bomb test explosions conducted by India at the Indian Army’s Pokhran Test Range in Jaisalmer.  Diana says, “I read the script and liked it instantly. It’s quick paced, intelligent and what’s most exciting for me is that it’s based on a true story. To be able to tell a story of such great national importance and recreate history in a way, is what really drew me to this film. And yes, this is my first film in the action-drama genre. The idea has always been to try something different each time, and I’m glad I’ve had the opportunities to do so.”

The script has been written by Saiwyn Quadros and Sanyuktha Chawla Shaikh (the writers behind the hit film, Neerja) and will be directed by Abhishek Sharma. The film goes on floors on May 30 this year.

Apart from this, Diana is also rumoured to be starring in the sequel of Happy Bhaag Jayegi which is produced by Anand L Rai. Diana has also just finished shooting Lucknow Central with Farhan Akhtar
