Filmmaker Ankoosh Bhatt has landed himself with some of the quirkiest set of people and the crown of this casting coup of his upcoming film 3Dev totally lands on his head!
Starting off with a gritty thriller Bhindi Bazaar, Ankoosh picked up on raving reviews but realised over time that such films only get lauded by critics but to get the numbers up you definitely have to go in for something massy. “You don’t have to make meaningless cinema for that,” instantly clarifies Bhatt further adding, “You just have to make a decent film with appeals to the senses of the mass.”
And with that mindset he landed himself with 3Dev, a one of its kind comedy with an ensemble cast comprising the likes of Prosenjit, Raima Sen, Tisca Chopra, Kay Kay Menon, Kunaal Roy Kapur, Ravi Dubey and Karan Singh Grover! Phew! That’s a huge list and ask him how he managed to pull this coup, he says, “It wasn’t easy but I guess I got lucky with my script which appealed to all these actors and they graciously agreed to play the parts I had written for them without asking for any change.”
Staying true to the characters and not actors playing it seems to be Ankoosh’s mantra, “There was no favouristism which is what worked with the actors and hence they took up the roles that were written for them. Additionally, there are a couple of side actors in the film too but you still won’t see them being wasted in a blink and miss role. Each actor who will come on camera in this film will have a part to play and ultimately it is going to be a satisfying experience for everyone,” says Bhatt.
This one of a kind comedy is all set to release on the 1st of June 2018 and we can’t wait to see so many actors in one film. 3DEV is produced by Chintan Rana of R2 Phillum productions, presented by Ayub Khan of E4U Enterprises.
