Nakul is pinning hopes on his upcoming film Sei, directed by Gopalan Manoj--a well-known name in the short film circuit. In the film, Nakul will play the role of an aspiring actor and Bollywood actress Aanchal plays a struggling filmmaker. The journey of these two individuals forms the crux of the movie. The shooting of the film is progressing briskly and the film is likely to hit the screens in October.

In a recent interview, the actor has revealed that the film will showcase him in a different avatar. "The role has a lot of shades, and my body language in the film will be different from my previous films. In fact, this one is quite challenging for me as an actor — the character is loud — something which I have never attempted," he was quoted saying.
