Producer Sharad Hegde announces his prestigious Indo-Chinese project THE DESIRE (working title) under the banner of C- 9 Motion Pictures in association with Indish Creations. With the star cast of Chinese super star Xia Yu, Shilpa Shetty, Jaya Prada, Anupam Kher, Sachin Khedekar, Sheetal Menon and Nakul Vaid, this film has gone on floors from January 11th 2009 with a long outdoor schedule in Kerela.
Directed by R. Sarath, the story of THE DESIRE mainly revolves around Goutami, an accomplished Odissi dancer and Jai Leang, a talented artist. They get introduced to each other during Goutami's tour of Malaysia for a performance. The film follows the journey of their respective lives until they are brought together again by destiny.
Comments Mr Sharad Hegde, 'It is a very prestigious project for us. In this film we have tried to go beyond the boundary of land as well shackled emotions. It's not a run-of-the-mill story. Instead it deals with the sensibilities of creative people in the most sensitive manner. It's the story of today, but rises from the small cities of India.'
According to the director R. Sarath, 'Essentially, THE DESIRE is a passionate film mainly dealing with dance, music, art, culture and emotions.'
