Prem saab's onscreen character is an award winning personality. When director Keshhav Panneriy narrated the script to Prem saab, he was awed by the pictures and awards which the legendary actor had won in his career. The director asked Premji, if the team could use his actual pictures to decorate his onscreen office rather than creating new ones, so that the scene looks real and authentic. To the surprise of Keshhav, he immediately agreed to the same. Prem Chopra shared almost 50 pictures including the one in which he was receiving an award from the then President of India Gyani Zail Singh.
Keshhav shared, “Prem saab is truly a legendary actor, as promised he shared all his pictures with the production team which helped to add depth and authenticity to the scenes.” Produced by Purnima Mead of Bibia Films, the film is directorial debut of Keshhav Panneriy.
Also starring Arbaaz Khan, Ashutosh Rana, Prem Chopra, Supriya Pathak, Manjari Fadnis and Himansh Kohli, JEENA ISI KA NAAM HAI is slated to release in January 2017.
