Bharat Dabholkar gets ready for new innings

NEW DELHI: Bharat Dabholkar, managing director of Publicis India, is on verge of releasing his maiden directorial venture in the movie industry, a two-hour English movie - God Only Knows.



The movie has been produced by Mumbai-based production company Why Not Productions (WNP) and is expected to get released in December.

"This is my first directorial effort and first movie produced by Why Not Productions. The movie is about a politician, who through his cunning ways, creates chaos in heaven. Ultimately, it leads to destruction of entire universe," says Dabholkar.

Describing it as a project full of humour, Dahbolkar says though the climax of the movie is set in heaven, it has got links from daily life as well. "The entire movie is based on this politician, who is chosen by Narad Muni to interact with gods. It has interesting anecdotes, for instance, this politician forms opposition party in heaven," adds Dahbolkar.

Besides releasing it in local market, WNP is also targeting foreign markets and is in the process of tying up with distribution companies or professionals to reach out to wider audience.

WNP, which has been co-founded by Dabholkar and Annanya Dutt, is not only planning to produce movies but it also intends to get into television programming, music videos and advertising films.

"We had earlier produced a music video based on Prime Minister's poems, which has been on air on Doordarshan. We soon would be getting into other projects," says Dabholkar, who also mentioned there is no hierarchy as such in WNP.

The movie God Only Knows has got more than 15 special effects, executed by post production house FX Factory. Apart from Dabholkhar, WNP's Dutt is involved as an actress, co-director and executive producer.

Dutt has performed a crucial dance sequence 'Tandav Nritya' towards the end of the movie, which has also got some exciting special effects. More than 30 members from the FX Factory have worked on this project.

Apart from Dutt, other actors in the movie include Anjan Srivastav, Dileep Prabhawalkar and Sharbani Mukherjee
