The film has Vaibhav Reddy and Venkat Prabhu in lead roles. “Venkat Prabhu is known to make and be a part of fun films and Vaibhav is known for his subtlety. Lock Up will break this stereotype. Moreover, there has been a misconception that we are a gang of boys, who is known to have fun. Post Lock Up, the perception towards us will change, for good,” he told DT Next.
Divulging more about the film, Nitin opened up that Lock Up is an investigative thriller. However, he quickly clarified that Lock Up is different from films like Visaarani and Mouna Guru. “The genre could be the same but, our story line will be entirely different and the treatment given by debutant director SG Charles is amazing. Distributors, who have watched the films, are impressed,” he revealed.
Nitin said that he is a fan of investigative thrillers. “Apart from that I have always wanted to produce a film in this genre. I would say that any movie in this genre has always been the audience’s favourite and is also a safe bet for a producer,” he concluded.
