Acclaimed director Neeraj Pandey has achieved immense popularity and respect for his feature films like A Wednesday (2008), Special 26 (2013), Baby (2015) and M S Dhoni – The Unold Story (2016). Last year, he ventured into the digital space with Special Ops. The web has a different format from that of films. Yet, Neeraj Pandey managed to carve his niche there as well.
It has emerged that the filmmaker is ready with the sequel to the show which will be announced next week. A source says, “Neeraj Pandey has completed the script of Special Ops 2. Just like the first part, the sequel is also expected to be action-packed and well-researched. The makers have decided to announce the second installment tomorrow. The details are kept under wraps but the makers have promised that the announcement would be something to watch out for.”
Special Ops 2 is expected to go on floors in February. The source adds, “The shoot is expected to go on till June. A few international locations have been locked as well. Just like the first part, Neeraj Pandey will be joined by Shivam Nair to direct the series.” The star cast is also expected to be the same, with Kay Kay Menon headlining the series.
