It's been a dreamlike journey for the makers of multiple award-winning film, COURT. However, the director of the film says that at one point he didn't have the money to develop the film's script.


Says the director, “The work on the film started three and a half years ago. Before that I had done a few short films, a feature length play and a documentary. I had run out of money and was 24. There was a lot of pressure from my family to earn money. I didn't want to do a 9-5 job. I had the idea of COURT but I didn't have the money to develop the script.”

He further adds, “I was really upset and down and that's when I met Vivek Gomber with whom I had worked with for an English play called Grey Elephants in Denmark. I had written and directed that play and he was my actor. He met me after three years and saw that I was really down and upset. He offered to help me financially for COURT's script. I found it very awkward to accept the offer because he's a friend. But he convinced me, and that's how I started working on the film's script. After a year of research and interviews and going to courts many times, I had the script of COURT. Vivek really liked the script and offered to become a producer.”

The National Award winning film releases on 17th April, 2015.
