Filmmaker-writer Shahid Kazmi who all set with his forthcoming film ‘Pending Love’ has said that he will be only focusing on directing films in his film career.
Shahid Kazmi was interacting with media at the trailer launch of ‘Pending Love’ along with film’s actor Shoib Nikash Shah, Pari Choudhary, Tariq Imtyaaz, and Faizaan Khan on Monday in Mumbai.
‘Pending Love’ is an anthology of bold, intense, emotional and practical three love stories.
Apart from writing and directing ‘Pending Love’, Shahid has also played character of bisexual in the film, when asked Shahid which he enjoys the most – direction or acting, he said, “Directing films is my only focus. I wasn’t supposed to act in this film. There is one actor who is bisexual was supposed to play the role which I have played in the film but he backed off from a film at last moment and that time, I wasn’t able to find an actor who could understand the emotion of the character so, I decided to play that part as I have written the film so I knew the mindset of that character.”
When asked Shahid what are his expectations from ‘Pending Love’ he said, “When the trailer will be launched on YouTube then, we will be able to know if people are liking the trailer of the film or not. I don’t get judgmental easily and I always think of positives and negatives while working on a film. Sometimes we feel that we have made a good film but people don’t like it and sometimes it also happens that when we feel that we haven’t made a good film but audience appreciates it. In the film, we have tried to show every kind of relationship so that, everyone can relate with the film’s story.”
Produced by Surjeet Choudhary Film Productions and presented by Prem Kumar Films.
‘Pending Love’ is written and directed by Shahid Kazmi. It has been shot extensively in Mumbai and Kashmir.
It releases on 2nd November 2018.
