'X' - 1 film, 11 directors
Eleven filmmakers from different parts of the country have come together for a never-seen-before cinematic experience about a filmmaker titled "X".
Filmmakers such as Abhinav Shiv Tiwari, Anu Menon, Hemant Gaba, Pratim D. Gupta, Q, Raja Sen, Rajshree Ojha, Sandeep Mohan, Sudhish Kamath, Suparn Verma and Thiagarajan Kumararaja will direct the film, which will feature actor-director Rajat Kapoor in the lead.
The eleven filmmakers met in Mumbai last weekend to brainstorm and locked their individual segments after an over six-week long discussion.
"What started out as just a random idea has blown into this big and brilliant exercise in collaboration of minds and exchange of ideas across genres," said Sudhish Kamath, who initiated the idea, in a statement.
"In one film, we are trying to mix these different textures that have made these directors win audiences from across the globe," he added.
"X" is a filmmaker's journey through his past encounters with his 10 ex-girlfriends as he spends one surreal unforgettable night at a film festival after he meets a mysterious girl who intriguingly seems to have something to do with every woman in his life.
The film, which is already into production, is being produced by Manish Mundra.
"It's so exciting to have these amazing and talented filmmakers come together for such an ambitious film. 'X' brings the best of new-age Indian cinema on a platform that can reach out to all kinds of audiences all over," said Mundra.
The film is getting ready for release later this year.
