`Shab` my first love story: Onir
Mumbai: After bringing up sensitive issues like HIV/AIDS and homosexuality through his films ‘My Brother Nikhil’ and ‘I Am’, filmmaker Onir is now working on a new project ‘Shab’, his first romantic saga.
"I think `Shab` will be my first true love story. A film about love and lust, want and need," tweeted the filmmaker.
The project is currently in its scripting stage.
"Read my script `Shab` again after a gap of two months. Scripting is such an endless process. Will write the next draft from tomorrow.
"But honestly I AM already in love with the way it`s shaping up, changing. I can see the images. Wonder which bodies will embody my image," he added.
Onir, who recently won a National Award for his film ‘I Am’, said he has been working on the script for the past 10 years.
"I think `Shab` is my most difficult script till now. An intense relationship film... A script I have been working on and off for 10 years," he wrote.
He hopes the project takes shape soon.
"Yes it`s taken a decade and finally I hope `Shab` will see the light of day. Each scene a pearl... But finally when beaded together correctly become a priceless piece of jewellery waiting to adorn the audiences dream.
"Right now I have unknown faces and voices... Waiting to find them. Some are known... Dunno if `Shab` will finally find them," he further posted.
