Sound designer Resul Pookutty will soon direct an emotional father-son story to star Amitabh Bachchan. He has been writing the script for some time.
'It's something that I've been toying with for a long time. But it's too early to talk about it. It is indeed a very emotional father-son subject. While I was writing the script, I was immediately reminded of Amitabh Bachchan," averred Pookutty.
Though the project has been thought about, the film will go on the floors next year after Pookutty finishes his second international project titled THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL directed by John Madden.
Said Pookutty, "I've been in love with Madden's film SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE and now I'm getting to work with him. The film has actors like Dame Judi Dench, Julie Christie, Tom Wilkinson and Peter O'Toole.
"Fox Searchlight that had produced SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE called for me for the project and I felt honoured. I'll be doing live sound mixing of the film," quipped the sound designer.
