Famous Studio ventures into film production

MUMBAI: The Arun Roongta owned Famous Studio Ltd, better known as a post production hub, has ventured into filmmaking with a film titled Anubhav, being made under the banner of MMR Entertainments Pvt Ltd.

Famous Studio has thus far been well known for its key facilities for high end audio/video/film, animation, special effects, telecine and spacious shooting floors.

Says one of the film’s producers, Anand Mundhra, “Anubhav deals with the social urban reality. We have shot the film within four months at locales like Cochin, Trivandrum, Munnar and Mumbai. The film’s editing is in progress under the supervision of Suresh Pai and we hope to release the film in April 2007. The story and screenplay have been penned by Anoop Menon and the music has been composed by Aadesh Srivastava and Krishnamohan.”

Anubhav will feature Sanjay Suri, Gul Panag, Jackie Shroff, along with Shruthi Seth, Meeta Vashistha, Kalpana Pandit, Rakesh Bedi, Sudha Chandran and others. It has been directed by southern film director Raviv Nath, who makes his foray into Hindi films with Anubhav. Nath has earlier directed around 13 films in Malayalam, says Mundhra.

Famous Studio is planning some more films, budgeted around Rs 30 to 50 million (Rs three to five crore), he says.
