Sanjay Gupta ‘nervous, excited’ to begin his next film


Mumbai: Filmmaker Sanjay Gupta on Thursday said he is set to begin work on his next film, which is a “complete departure” from his previous movies.

The 52-year-old director, whose debut feature was 1994’s Aatish: Feel the Fire , is synonymous with crime-action and gangster films like Kaante , Shootout series and Mumbai Saga .

Gupta said he is both excited and nervous about his next film.

Off alone to Goa today to embark on a new and fascinating journey of my next film which is a complete departure from anything I’ve done so far. Anxious, nervous, excited…, he tweeted.

In a follow-up tweet, the filmmaker said he is looking forward to 2022 as he intends to direct at least two films next year, besides producing multiple projects under his banner White Feather Films.

I am so looking forward to 2022. The plan is to make up for the time lost to both the pandemics. While White Feather Films is already producing multiple films, I am scheduled to direct two films next year. With the strong possibility of a third, he added.

Gupta last month announced his home production Visfot , a thriller starring Riteish Deshmukh and Fardeen Khan.

Directed by Kookie Gulati of The Big Bull fame, the movie is the official remake of the 2012 Venezuelan film Rock, Paper, Scissors .

Visfot is presented by Gupta and Bhushan Kumar-led T-Series.
