Neha Dhupia set to make her International film debut in Ali El Arabi’s Blue 52 – Monomaxos



Neha Dhupia is poised to enthral a global audience in her inaugural international film, Blue 52, helmed by esteemed Egyptian filmmaker Ali El Arabi.

Set against the breathtaking landscapes of Kochi, India, and Qatar, Blue 52 marks Neha Dhupia’s foray into a distinct role, promising an unexplored facet of the actress as she immersed herself in a character infused with intense emotional drama.

The narrative revolves around Ashish, who, at age 9, is isolated by his father following the loss of his older brother. Living on an island by the backwaters of Kochi, Ashish grows up in seclusion, confined by limited knowledge of the world beyond his admiration for Messi and his mother’s lessons preparing him for life outside their island home. Determined to venture out with his mother’s support and an almost fantastical opportunity to meet his idol, Messi, at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Ashish steps into the unknown, discovering his true self and his passions along the way.

The fusion of diverse cultures in this international venture allowed me to delve deep into a character that is both challenging and emotionally resonant. It’s a transformative experience that I believe will leave a lasting impact and I’m glad that Ali chose me to essay the lead in what is my international first”.

Blue 52 is directed and produced by Ali El Arabi, with Tariq Al-Naama as a producer. Co-producers include Krysanne Katsoolis, Joe Matthews, and Katara Studios.
