While Anjum Rizvi is one of the producers of JOHN DAY, the film is also backed by Aatef A Khan and his elder brother K. Asif who have just diversified into filmmaking. While this is their first stint into making movies, not many are aware that Aatef has worked extensively with Shahid Kapoor. The connect comes from the fact that he was the Chief Assistant Director in FOOL N FINAL as well as PAATHSHAALA, both featuring Shahid.

'I was assisting Ahmed Khan back then. Though I and my brother K. Asif come from a business background, I was interested in filmmaking. I thought that the first step in this direction would be to be there on the sets and see how a film is made. Being an assistant out there on these two films helped,' says the youngster.

While he was interested in the entire filming process, he also decided in the meanwhile to go behind the scenes and produce a film instead of directing one himself.

'I thought direction was a really difficult job,' Aatef gives out a hearty laugh here, 'I guess you need certain vision to pull it off. I want to learn more before really plunging into direction. Once I know that I would be able to do justice to the film, only then will I come behind the camera. Otherwise I don't want to do something just for the heck of it and in the process screw a good script.'

No wonder, when Ahishor Solomon narrated the script of JOHN DAY to him, Aatef was more than happy to step back and allow the writer-director to call the shots. With Randeep Hooda and Naseeruddin Shah coming on board, he felt that this was the best possible start his banner could enjoy.

Well, the results would be known soon too once the film releases all over on 13th September 2013.
