Popular for his stint in television series, Imran Khan is all set to make his directorial debut with Sarghoshiyan.
The actor-turned-director has recently finished his last schedule of his upcoming film, in which he stars along with a string of actors like Indraneil Sengupta, Hassan Zaidi, Sara Khan, Aditi Bhatia, Khalid Siddiqui, Alok Nath, Fareeda Jalal, Tom Alter and Shahbaz Khan.
Imran made his debut in 1991 with Rishi Kapoor in the film Inteha Pyar Ki and was also seen in strong character roles in movies like Big Brother, Heroine, Suryavansham, Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi, Hawa, Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji and Shaheed Bhagat Singh.
Based on the violence in Jammu and Kashmir, Sargoshiyan exhibits the unperceived and unexplored part of the state. Wrapping up the film, Imran has successfully captured uncharted places in Doodhpathri, Awantipora ruins, Mughal Road, Aharbal Falls, Badpathar and many lesser travelled exotic locations of J&K, giving the audience a picturesque imagery.
The candour of the movie lies in the pride and simplicity of Kashmir and its people. The film highlights human relationships along with Kashmiri culture adding flavor to it.
Sharing his experience, Imran said, “Considering it's my first directorial venture, shooting at remote beautiful villages of Kashmir would have been impossible without the help from the J&K Tourism, J&K government, Indian Military and the warm hearted locals of the beautiful valley! The vast locales became a logistical challenge, but I am fortunate to have the wonderful and supportive star cast who stood by me in – 5 degree temperatures with a big smile!"
Set to hit the screens under the Imran Khan Production banner, the movie will release in March 2017.
