MUMBAI: Maker of the popular science programme ‘Turning Point‘, Sanjay Tripathy, has debuted into filmmaking with his upcoming film ‘Club 60‘ that delves into the lives of a bunch of people aged 60.

Commenting on his drive to make it to Bollywood, Tripathy said, "I started my career as a journalist. I also produced and directed many science based shows for BBC, National Geographic and Discovery. But making films was always the final destination."

Club 60 is about four-five oldies. They are not depressed or bored. They are not even counting their final days. They are a group of happy-go-lucky people who are members of Club 60.

Being a graduate in Physics and having created a number of science based shows, one expected a science fiction from Tripathy. But the director maintains that the film is very close to his heart as it is based on his own experience.

"It is based on my personal experience. I used to frequent a club in south Bombay. There I interacted with a bunch of fun loving, passionate oldies. I found out that they were plagued with a lot of troubles in their life but that did not deter their spirit and zeal to live life happily," he said.

The film boasts of veteran actors like Farooque Sheikh, Sarika, Satish Shah, Tinu Anand, Raghubir Yadav and Sharat Saxena.

The film, now under production, is expected to be wrapped up in September and to release by the end of this year.
