This film narrates the tale of an Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) officer, who finds himself in a life-and-death situation with a baffling case. Directed by debutant Behzad Khambata, the movie features Bollywood’s macho man Sunny Deol along with the newcomer Karan Kapadia, Karanvir Sharma and Ishita Dutta in pivotal roles. A compelling action thriller, the movie promises to keep the audience intrigued, right from the word go!
The teaser blurb reads: ’24 bombs, one heart-stopping mission. Will the city survive? Get ready for an action-packed roller coaster ride!’ That’s on Saturday night with the World Television Premiere of Blank on 21st September at 8 pm, on Movie Channel &pictures
Based on a terror plot, the film showcases the story of Haneef (Karan Kapadia) who is held captive by the police at the hospital as they find a ticking bomb attached to his chest. After a lot of tests, the doctors discover that if Haneef’s heart stops beating, the bomb will explode activating the other 23 bombs at different places.
Scared by the thought of this, the police calls ATS chief SS Dewan (Sunny Deol) to investigate this case further. On interrogating Haneef, who is suffering from partial memory loss, Dewan starts to suspect that he is a suicide bomber and a part of a conspiring terror group. But what is the actual truth is for viewers to unravel with the premiere of Blank.
With thrilling action sequences, Sidhu’s chase to stop the 24 bombs from detonating and Haneef’s memory loss, forms the crux of Blank’s storyline. While the movie is Karan Kapadia’s debut film, it also features a special cameo by Karan’s brother in law Akshay Kumar, who will be sharing the screen space in a special song called ‘Ali Ali’ .
Commenting about her role, Ishita Dutta said, “Blank is my first attempt at the action genre and was also the reason I took up this role. Having grown up watching Sunny sir’s movies, never did I imagine that I would be working with him one day. The amount of energy and hard work that he puts in his work is phenomenal.
Playing the character of a cop was quite challenging because of the action sequences one has to perform but Sunny sir and director Behzad kept encouraging and guiding me throughout, which made it a little easier. This movie marks the debut of Karan Kapadia and I must say he is a complete surprise package.
The way he delivers his scenes, one would not think that it’s his first movie. Working with such a talented team was an enriching experience. All in all, I can just say that it’s a film that I am really proud of doing and hope the audience will enjoy the World Television Premiere of Blank on &pictures on 21s September at 8 pm.”
Debutant Karan Kapadia said, “Blank is an unusual story where I play a suicide bomber who suffers from memory loss. While it took me a long time to get the role, it was an experience I totally enjoyed. After working with Sunny Sir I can proudly say that life has come full circle as I met him when I was a kid. It was surreal to share screen space with him and I only hope to be good and consistent in my upcoming projects.
As for the song with Akshay, it wasn’t decided till two weeks before we shot it. He agreed to do it only after he saw rushes of the film; it was his way of wishing ‘good luck’ to me. Everyone around has been so encouraging and I hope that the audience will be able to catch the World Television Premiere on &pictures.”
Watch the World Television Premiere of Blank on 21st September at 8 pm on only &pictures as Sunny Deol tries to piece together a complex puzzle to save the day
