‘Bhoothnath’ and ‘Kal Kissne Dekha’ director Vivek Sharma has turned producer. The talented director has floated his production company -- Film Zone -- and the first film to be produced by this concern is ‘Buddham Sharanam Gachhami’. Now here's the latest on the project: Vivek has signed Amitabh Bachchan to enact the central role.
"Yes, Amit-ji is on board," Vivek confirms the development. What prompted him to turn producer so early in his career? "I was always keen to make certain films independently. I wish to have the creative freedom when I make these films and the only way to do so is by producing it yourself. So here I am, in the producers' arena," Vivek smiles.
Vivek is gung ho about the subject of this film. "Amit-ji was floored when he read the script. ‘Buddham Sharanam Gachhami’ is the kind of film that would take Indian films to the global platform," Vivek sounds confident. The film is expected to star several prominent names that are currently under finalization.
‘Buddham Sharanam Gachhami’ is about violence. It talks of people taking to violence and becoming hardened criminals.
