Vivek Agnihotri, the director of CHOCOLATE & GOAL, is starting his new film which is being touted as a very controversial and edgy political thriller.
Vivek traveled extensively last year in politically volatile eastern India and Naxal infested Central India. When contacted, Vivek mentioned, "This is the film I want to make. It's something that I must say. It's a very important film". It's based on some very sensitive true incidents which may expose a lot of heavyweights and their nexus.
The film will have Arunoday Singh, Mahie Gill & Anupam Kher in principle roles. The movie which is yet untitled, is being directed and co-produced by Vivek along with Friday Night productions (a production house by the current students of Indian Business School, Hyderabad). It is also the 1st time ever that a film is based on B-schools and will be shot at one of the World's Premium B-Schools.
"ISB students wanted to make a professionally managed film to showcase their business acumen and I was ready with this very personal film. While doing some sessions on 'Creative Thinking' at ISB we connected. Things fell into place and now we are making this film together. The film will start shooting from the 22nd of this month at the ISB campus itself." Vivek added.
