Back in September, ZEE5 unveiled their upcoming fast-paced courtroom original Nail Polish, promising a hypnotic storyline with exciting twists. Earlier today, the streamer took to their official Twitter handle to announce the release date:
Helmed by Bugs Bhargava Krishna, who’s previously known for films like Delhi Belly and Taare Zameen Par, Nail Polish stars Arjun Rampal in the lead, with Manav Kaul, Rajit Kapur and Anand Tiwari in pivotal roles.
Per the official description, “A uniquely constructed murder trial where the back story and the court proceedings are seamlessly interwoven into a journey of criminal discovery that leaves the audience guessing till the very end.”
Rampal who is essaying the role of Sid Jaisingh, a high-profile defence lawyer in the film, will be working with the streamer for the second time after his web series, The Final Call.
“The script is as intriguing as the title. With a wonderful cast combined with very addictive energy and clarity of the director Bugs Bhargava Krishna, this is a project that is extremely promising and allows everyone to push one’s limits to a level, that hopefully shall transform itself into something very very special,” the actor said in a statement.
Manav Kaul who will be seen adopting the persona of Veer Singh, expressed his appreciation towards his character as well as the film. The actor shared,
“Veer Singh, my character in Nail Polish plays a major role in the narrative and it is the most difficult and thrilling roles I have played to date. The script and my part were really intriguing and instantly got me hooked. Bugs is a class apart with his direction and has been consistently supporting and guiding us through the process of the shoot.”
This will be the director’s second film after Barot House, which was also in collaboration with ZEE5.
“The film is extremely close to my heart and we couldn’t have asked for a better star cast. We have started shooting keeping all the precautionary measures in mind. This is one of a kind courtroom legal thriller that people have never seen before,” Bhargava added.
Nail Polish is slated to premiere on January 1, on ZEE5 Premium.
