6 October, Kathmandu.
Indian actor Sunil Setti is set to act in the Nepali film ‘X9’. Director Mukunda Bhatt has informed that Dev Singh will also act in ‘X9’ which will be made at Rs 120 million along with Sunil Setti.
The film, produced by Birend Bahadur Kunwar, will be released in Nepali, Hindi and English. The film will star Nepali actors Anmol KC, Pushpa Khadka, Priyanka Thapa, Saugat Malla, Navin Lamsal and others. Bhatt informed that he has been training them for the film for the last one and a half months. Director Bhatt said that the film also features an Indian actor to show that Nepali actors have reached this point as they are not valued internationally.
He said that Setti’s salary was the same as that of a Nepali artist. He said that Setti agreed with the story of the film and not the remuneration. Setti has given the production team 12 days to shoot the film. But his filming will take about 20 days. Bhatt informed that the film will be released in the next decade.
