MUMBAI: Suparn Verma’s Acid Factory will be the first release of 2009 from Sanjay Gupta’s banner, White Feather Films. The film, which was shot in Cape Town and in Hyderabad’s Ramoji Rao Studio, has completed its shooting, except for one song.
Verma said, "We had erected a big set of the Acid Factory in Hyderabad and most of the interiors was shot in this place. We then moved to Cape Town where the story has been set."
Starring Fardeen Khan, Aftab Shivdisani, Irrfan Khan, Manoj Bajpai, Danny Denzongpa, Dino Morea and Dia Mirza, the director said that the special bonding shared by these actors resulted in some awesome chemistry on the set and hence, in filming it too.
Expressing his satisfaction, Varma said, "There are seven actors in the film and each character has a definite definition to the building up of his histrionics in the film. The trust factor which the actors had with each other added to their performance, which made the screenplay even more dynamic. There were no insecurities amongst them. Rather there was so much of a give and take that their interactive scenes came out better than expected."
Acid Factory revolves around a question, which the film maker has raised, "Does society let a man ever forget his bad deeds?" It also deals with the fact that does memory hold the key to morality.
Varma, who directed Ek Khiladi, Ek Haseena, has been given a free hand to direct this film and says, "With a producer like White Feather Films, the opportunity to do concept films is tremendous. I have been encouraged to follow my instincts and all credit goes to the managing director Sanjay Gupta. People will sit back and appreciate our efforts to experiment with thoughts and technique."
The release date is still being worked out and can only be decided after they wrap up the shooting of one song that is yet to be shot. The post production of the film is going on.
