Rahul’s next with Nitin titled ‘Sayonee’ is slated for release in theatres on December 18.
Meanwhile speaking about the upcoming films ‘Sayonee’ and ‘Stroke, Nitin told the publication, “This (Sayonee) will be his first release after the stroke and while other producers might be hesitant to work with him for a while, I plan to launch my next with him in February. It’s a murder mystery titled Stroke. Coincidentally, the film’s protagonist, played by Rahul, witnesses a murder but is unable to name the murderer because he has suffered a stroke. We are mixing reality with fiction.”
