Feeling at ease in the cozy atmosphere at Vinod Vidhu Vinod Chopra's office in Mumbai, the producer, director and writer makes a request to see the first 15 minute prelude of WAZIR. Impressed by the intensity, complicity and strong scene development, I asked the idea and the seed of WAZIR and some fascinating facts are revealed.

“WAZIR is Vinod' idea. Since 1988 he is thinking about this story. The seed of this idea is 27-years old. When I met him for the first time in 1994 he shared this idea of a thriller. In fact, WAZIR was his first Hollywood dream,” says Abhijat. 

Vinod Chopra joins in and says, “Dustin Hoffman was to play the protagonist and it was called THE FIFTH MOVE (working title).”

However, the sudden death of the producer forced curtains to this ambition which has finally got realized in 27 years and now coming on January 8 next year. The stellar cast, trendsetting writers, and a production house which has remained immune to the commercial push of box-office and artistic pull of art in their cinema.

WAZIR is not just another run of the mill thriller.. It's a passion that has lots to say in coming days. Stay tune for more interesting updates on WAZIR.
