After creating a niche for himself in the Indian Advertising Fraternity, UTV co-founder Deven Khote will take on the director's mantle! Upcoming flick FILM CITY will have Deven behind the camera!

His vast expertise of the industry boasts of his experience from TV, gaming to quiz shows and advertising. Roping in the Bollywood stunner John Abraham to play an important role in the movie, FILM CITY is set against the backdrop of the Indian Film Industry.

FILM CITY is a light-hearted story of a chawl situated next to Film City, the studio complex of the Bollywood film industry. It follows the misadventures, antics and lives of its quirky residents as they try to piece together their own movie. The protagonist of the film Raju, a spotboy who is a life-long resident of the chawl sets the ball rolling!

Commenting on his venture, Deven Khote, co-founder, UTV said, ''After gaining an understanding of various avenues in the entertainment industry, direction was the obvious choice, an unexplored avenue. FILM CITY is an amalgamation of two thoughts, one which got sparked off by observing a spot boy and the other deriving inspiration from a bunch of boys in Malegaon spoofing themselves, FILM CITY brings the two together and centers around these nuts trying to make a film.''

Alpana Mishra, COO, UTV Motion Pictures said, ''Inspite of this movie being Deven's maiden venture, he has always been the one in command whether on ideas, concepts and now fully on top of the pre production. Watching him take on direction with such ease was a classic display of perfectionism at its best. FILMCITY will go on the floors on 17th April with most of the film being shot on sets and locations in Mumbai. The key crew includes Ram Sampath for Music, Cinematography by Mahesh Aney and Nitin Desai for Art.''
