UTV’s films announcement

UTV Motion Pictures has announced their forthcoming venture with Anurag Basu (directed by) called Metro One City Countless Emotions. Starring an ensemble cast of Shilpa Shetty, Shiney Ahuja, Kay Kay Menon, Sharman Joshi, Konkona Sen Sharma and Kangna R.


Synopsis of the film:
This busy metropolis nurtures millions of people, some of whom earn a lot, some don’t, but all work very hard and for very long hours. Although modern technology attempts to make this world an easier place to live in, our relationships with each other are getting more and more strained and we keep drifting apart.


What happens when love true forges inroads in a heartless world of materialism?


What is the fate of 3 entangled love stories in an urban landscape accustomed to breaking hearts, daring commitments and forcing choices? With an entire world that badly needs to connect and where people need other people, it is the need of hour to simplify communication and self-expression.


A journey across three stories entangled with one another, by a common yet complex thread of love, which will leave audiences yearning to experience similar magic in their own lives.


Pointers:
– Anurag Basu has previously only worked with Mahesh Bhatt and is the first time that he is working out of the Bhatt camp.


– Anurag is repeating Kanga after his first film Gangster with her.

– Anurag has previously directed Gangster, Tumsa Nahi Dekha and Murder.


– UTV has signed Sharman Joshi again after their fabulous association in Rang De Basanti.


– UTV also has two other prestigious projects on floors – Goal with John Abraham and Hat Trick with Nasseruidin Shah, Paresh Rawal, Hema Malini and Kunal Kapoor.


Quotes:
Ronnie Screwvala, UTV Motion Pictures (producer) This film has quite taken us by surprise too! We finalized the entire cast and crew budgets everything else of the project in a mere 30 days… I was spellbound after I heard the script. I never ever worked with Anurag Basu but these last 30 days has been a very wonderful piece. We start shooting next week and we are targeting to release first quarter 2007.


Anurag Basu (director)
We are trying to make this a very stylish film. It will be only shot in Mumbai and Mumbai will seen a in a new light. And would like to give a big thanks to Ronnie and UTV for giving me this opportunity.


ShineyAhuja (actor)
I didn’t even the read the script of the film. I have worked with Kanga and Anurag previously. The comfort level of the sets is very high. Also I am very excited to have an opportunity to work such people and UTV.Shilpa Shetty (actor) I always wanted to do different kinds of roles. We are announcing a film today and have another film releasing tomorrow. After so many years of being in the industry and I only get excited with different genres of film. I want to do more unconventional roles. This is what attracted me to Metro. I have known Anurag for quite a few years and its wonderful to work with him.
