Alaya F is set to star in Ekta Kapoor’s Hindi remake of a Kannada thriller, ‘U-Turn’

Filming for the new urban drama ‘U-Turn’ begins tomorrow. Although not much is known about the project, the makers have released a video that provides a glimpse of the thriller. In other words, the video sets the tone for a suspense thriller, already catching the attention of the audience.

Alaya F who is thrilled to be a part of this film, shared, “It is an extremely exciting opportunity to collaborate with Ekta ma’am so early on in my career, especially for such an interesting project. I feel responsible to be bestowed with the task to drive such an intriguing story and I’m absolutely overjoyed to start this journey.”

Talking of the same Ekta Kapoor shared, “Alaya was fantastic in her debut film. There’s a self-assured yet vulnerable quality to her that I believe can connect with audiences across. U-Turn takes you on a ride with twists & turns galore & edge-of-the-seat excitement. I’m so happy to have Alaya on board!”

U-Turn will be produced by Cult Movies, a new division of Shobha Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Telefilms that produces new age & edgy content. As noted previously, it is the third Cult Movies film to be announced following Anurag Kashyap’s Dobaaraa and Dibakar Banerjee’s LSD 2.

The film centers on the death of motorists who break traffic rules at a particular flyover in Bangalore and the subsequent catching of the offender by an intern journalist and two police officers.

Directed by debutante Arif Khan, who has assisted on over ten films, including Gunjan Saxena, 2 States, Student of the Year, is all set to give this story a whole new perspective!
