Kirti Kulhari launches production house, to act in first project
Kirti Kulhari, who was last seen in musical drama Shaadisthan, a Disney+ Hotstar release, has launched her production label, Kintsukuroi Films. In the debut venture, she will be acting as well. Titled Nayeka, the shooting schedule of the movie has begun this month. It is touted to be a "fast-paced dark comedy thriller" and will feature the Indu Sarkar actress in the central role.
- With this move, Kulhari joins the league of young actresses like Anushka Sharma, Kangana Ranaut, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, and Deepika Padukone, all of who have started their own production houses.
- This allows them to give wings to their ideas, headline them, and also be the ones to launch faces.
- Kulhari, like them, plans to do the same, too, and we are all for it.
"The intention is also to create a more equal and collaborative atmosphere in the process of making a film," the Pink actress said in a statement. "Unfortunately, a hierarchy does exist...I would aim to bridge that gap, and respect the talent brought to the table in all equality. The idea is also to create opportunities for the young talent...be it writers, directors, actors, technicians."
Nayeka has been written-directed by Ajaykiran Nair. The film revolves around a struggling actress who falls into a trap of a crime unknowingly. Kulhari plays a cop. The twists and turns in the events lead to a cat and mouse chase throughout the film. Apart from Kulhari, the film is being backed by Yatin Gupte and Sajid Melek's Ward Wizard Entertainment and Vashisht Upadhyay.
