A big fan of slick, fast paced international cinema Sachiin Joshi is ready to bring to Indian audiences a never seen before suspense thriller titled AZAAN - A country...A conspiracy...A common man.

Produced by Alchemia Films, the movie is directed by Prashant Chadha of AAP KA SURROOR fame sees Sachiin Joshi playing an informant, who has to go undercover beyond enemy lines to save the country from the threat of biological warfare.

After shooting all over the world right from Morocco, Sudan, Algeria, Poland, France, Germany and India, the film's climax is going to shot in Chechnya, Russia an area with catastrophic radiation levels tens of thousands of times greater than normal.

Says a source, "No film has ever been shot in Chechnya before. AZAAN would be the first film to be shot. After almost nine years of war, Chechnya has become an ecological disaster zone, with oil and chemical leaking into the ground and radioactive material left lying about. The makers thought its apt to shoot the climax there since AZAAN is about biological warfare - the cast and crew will be shooting there for a whole 5 days."

Says director Prashant Chadha, "This is a very demanding film both for the cast and the crew. We have shot in subzero temperatures in Poland, France and Germany and the difficult terrain of Morocco, Sudan and Algeria. The threat is biological; the deadly ebola virus with a fatality rate of 90. AZAAN is an edgy, kinetic film with its heart in the right place"

The big budget action flick is also being shot with a foreign crew (including cinematographer Axel Fischer) and stars Playboy cover girl and Guess model Candice Boucher.
