Well known artists Shiva and Adi Irani have joined hands to turn director. The director duo’s first directorial venture “Raqt-Ek Rishta” was launched with grand muhurat on 21st November in Filmistan Studio at Mumbai. On this occasion Aruna Irani switched on the camera, Suniel Shetty sounded the clapper board and Ashok Thakeria broke the auspicious coconut while Indra Kumar directed the muhurat shot. Leading ladies of the film Shweta Bhardwaj ( ”Mission Istambul” fame) and Sheena Shahabadi (daughter of veteran actress Sadhana Singh who debuted with “Tera Sang”) along with some foreign dancers faced the camera for the muhurat shot.This film is being produced under the banner of Maa Tarini Films Production and it is being produced by Ashish Mishra.
Shiva and Adi have worked under many big directors. They have together in about 40 to 45 films. They are knowing eachother since last twenty years. The duo said, ‘Whenever we meet we use to analyse the films. Both of us thought we can workout together. We decide comelatively everything. My wavelength he knows and his I know. So we gel very well. We have learnt many things while working with directors and our film will showcase what we have learnt from them in those years.’
GlamGold met the director duo and congratulated for the film. Talking to GlamGold Adi Irani told, I was thinking for directing a film since last six years. I have worked in many films as an actor. So thought let’s try direction. I think there is more creativity in direction than acting.The director is involved in every aspect of the film like sound, art, script etc. With “Raqt-Ek Rishta” that dream has fulfilled. This film is an emotional thriller and it will show mother-daughter relationship in a new dimention. You will see different style on screen. Shive and me just wish to make good films in future also and yes we will make different genre films.’
Talking more about first venture Shiva adds, ‘ Shoot will begin from today. The muhurat shot is first song where the girl goes into flashback. After shoot in Mumbai for few days we will go to Devgarh in Jaipur, Rajsthan. We will complete the film in two schedules of 35 days. Post completion planning to release in summer vacation next year. You will see known and popular actors in guest appearance.’
Interestingly Shiva has changed his name to Shiva Rindan for this film as he feels that just the name Shiva doesn’t go well as the director of the film. The film also stars Shakti Kapoor, Gulshan Grover, Arjun Mahajan and Farida Jalal.
