His next film titled FREEDOM has an ensemble star cast unfolding the events in India spanning from 1970’s-2000. The film will have a realistic & cutting edge take along with various dramatic elements unlike the usual commercial cinema. Vivek is all set to make his debut as a producer under his flagship ‘Vivek Agnihotri Creates’ with this film.
Vivek along with his casting director traveled the length and breadth of the country to handpick the talented actors. FREEDOM will be a challenging film for the actors who would be undergoing rigorous training for couple of months. News is that the director will be conducting workshops in Delhi where the actors (which are yet to be revealed) will be confined to a room so that they can get into the skin of the character. The political thriller promises to give a blow by blow account of modern day India during the last three decades, beginning from the time of emergency declared in 1975 by the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi till date.
The gripping story has been penned by Vivek Agnihotri himself while the screenplay has been written by Vivek Agnihotri & Rohit Malhotra. The music will be given by Maestro Rahul Sharma (Son of Pandit Shivkumar Sharma) and the DOP is Yash Bhatt (Kodak Award Winning DOP from Hollywood).
FREEDOM which is all set to go on floors this October, will mark Vivek’s foray into other aspects of film making such as writing and production along with direction!
