Shoojit Sircar dabbles with terrorism againMarch 20th, 2009 - 7:58 pm ICT by Sampurn Wire
Shoojit Sircar made “Yahaan’ about terrorism in Kashmir. In fact he went there when terrorism was still rampant in the valley to shoot his love story.
He’s now set to make another film on the once beautiful but now war torn Sri Lanka.
The film is called Jaffna, which will be shot in the politically disturbed Sri Lankan area and will be produced in collaboration with UTV.
Shoojit has said, “I think Mani Ratnam’s Tamil film Kannathil Muttumital (featuring Madhavan and Simran) was also about the LTTE. But my Jaffna would be the first Hindi film to go into the critical situation in the area. It’s like a thriller. Jaffna would be an espionage thriller in the genre of The Bourne Identity. We’ve already acquired all the relevant permission to shoot in Sri Lanka.”
Shoojit has almost completed “Johnny Mastana’ with Amitabh Bachchan and he’s currently finalizing the cast for the film.
Looks like this one will turn out to be a thought provoking if not commercially successfully film. Watch this space for more. -Sampurn media
