MUMBAI—Veteran director Rajkumar Kohli gave the ‘mahurat’ clap’ at the launch of the Indo-Polish film “Nie Means Nie,” and Gulshan Grover faced the camera.
Present at the event were the cast and crew of the film including actors Armaan Kohli, Anna Ador, director Vikash Verma and screenplay Hitesh Desai. Among the dignitaries present were Consulate-General of Poland, Leszek Brenda, India’s Ambassador to Poland Ajay Bisaria and singer Hariharan, who will be providing the music for the film.
Grover said, “I am happy to be the first Indian actor to be playing the lead in an Indo-Polish film. Our film is the pioneering effort in bringing the two wonderful filmmaking countries’ talents together. What is interesting is Vikash’s passion and hard work. It is a coming together of an amazing cast and crew from two countries, and I am looking forward to this experience.”
Director Verma believes the film will strengthen the relationship between Indo-Polish cultures. He said, “We are planning to start the shoot of the film with a special song that will feature Gulshan Grover as well. Eighty percent of the film will be shot in Poland and 20 percent in Mumbai.” The film is a suspense thriller.
Polish actress Anna Ador said, “We have given our best to this film and the story in terms of building relations between the two countries. I am looking forward to work with the entire cast, especially Gulshan-sir.”
Consulate-General of Poland Brenda added, “The most important thing happening is that the whole idea of making the film has started today, and of course it is the matter between the producers in India and the partners in Poland.”
Bisaria added, “I want to congratulate Vikash and the entire team of G7 Films on the launch of “Nie Means Nie.” I think this is a path-breaking effort. Adjoining the Poland production, a love story with a message also underlines the culture, connection, and friendship between India and Poland. I wish them all success for this wonderful, brave and creative venture.”
The film produced by G7 films will be in Polish, English and Hindi, set against the backdrop of an innocent teenage love story beyond borders. Neetu Chandra and Polish actresses Anna Guzik and Sylwia Czech are in the cast.
