New Delhi [India], April 06 : After enthralling us with movies like 'Special 26', 'Baby' and 'Naam Shabana,' Neeraj Pandey is all geared for his upcoming directorial venture.
Like 'Special 26' which was inspired by the 1987 Opera House heist where a group posing as CBI officers executed an income tax raid on Mumbai jewelry and took off with "samples" of jewelry and cash, this movie will also be based on true events.

After 'MS Dhoni', 'A Wednesday' and 'Special 26,' director Neeraj Pandey's upcoming project will be a 2018 Republic Day release.
The story is set in Delhi, London, and Kashmir. Neeraj who likes to shoot in real locations, will be shooting parts of it in the Valley. The movie will go on the floors in May..
