Maker of KYA KOOL HAI HUM and APNA SAPNA MONEY MONEY, Sangeeth Sivan, is turning adventurous with the release of his action flick EK - THE POWER OF ONE.
Earlier the film was slated for August 31 release, hence clashing with RAM GOPAL VARMA KE AAG. But now the film has been pushed all the way to October with plans for a Diwali release on October 12th.
"Yes, we are planning for a Diwali release", confirms Sangeeth Sivan, "Though the final date has to be arrived at, 12th October is definitely in the mind."
Why the delay? "Well, we now want to invest some more time in the film's post production with larger effort in special effects. Also Bobby Deol has roared back with his back to back much appreciated performance in JHOOM BARABAR JHOOM, APNE and most recently NAQAAB. It is only imperative that we devise a revised strategy for bringing him to the audience with EK", explains Sangeeth who is making an action film long after his debut Hindi flick ZOR.
He adds, "The film should be special for Bobby and his fans because after a long time he would be seen in a full fledged action role. His entire look and persona has been remodeled for EK so that it goes with the character he enacts. Mark my words, EK would be a defining film for his career."
What's so special about it? "The raw power that Bobby has brought to his character", says the young-at-heart director excitedly, "When you would look at him, you would mainly look at the character that he plays rather than the Bobby you have known for years. His actions speak louder than his words, literally. Though the film has an action base to it, there is strong undercurrent of emotion that goes throughout the narrative. There is a very good appeal in the script for family audiences to walk into the theaters as well."
