`Soch Lo` director`s next family entertainment
Mumbai: Writer-director Sartaj Singh Pannu, who made his debut as an actor-filmmaker in his internationally acclaimed film `Soch Lo`, is now set to enthrall audiences with a full-fledged family entertainment on Sikhs.
"It`s on four brothers who went to wild west of UP (Uttar Pradesh) to retrieve their ancestral belongings. It`s a film on the sense of humour and pride attached to the Sardars," Sartaj told reporters.
Unlike his first film, which he made with funds contributed by his friends, for this film the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) graduate is receiving corporate funding.
"During `Soch Lo`, I didn`t have any producer and made it by borrowing money from friends. Now I have reached level two, where I am co-producing the film with two or three corporates," he said.
Sartaj has written and would be directing the film, which is tentatively named "Kirpan Singh", but unlike his first film, he is planning to cast some known faces.
"I am looking at some people like Bobby Deol and Aksay Khanna...and would be talking with them very soon," said Sartaj.
