PRESS RELEASE BY JYOTHI VENKATESH
Abhishek Kapoor needs no introduction as a director as his body of work speaks volumes. The artistic direction of Fitoor starring Aditya Roy Kapur, Katrina Kaif & Tabu turns seven today. The director walks back in time recalling how the film was ahead of its time.
Abhishek Kapoor says the very approach to making Fitoor was to create a world in itself. Set in Kashmir, we wanted the film and its music to transport the audience into a surreal world where time stood still. We started out telling a timeless story and ended up with a gem, Thanks to the immensely talented craftsman and actors like Tabu, Katrina and Aditya. I cannot forget how Tabu stepped in at the last minute, took such a complex role, and effortlessly excelled while holding my hand when I needed her most. As years pass by, the music of Fitoor continues to be appreciated and that is thanks to Amit Trivedi and Swanand Kirkire, both magicians of their craft. Fitoor is a film I will always be proud of and I am eternally grateful for the love it continues to garner from audiences around the world.
Fitoor was a learning curve for the director & also allowed him to expand his visions. Speaking of his upcoming projects, Abhishek Kapoor will be launching two new talents, Ajay Devgn’s nephew Aaman Devgan & Rasha Thadani in the upcoming action adventure. The director is busy scouting the perfect location to kick-start the shooting schedule.
Every talent launched under his guidance is living a beautiful upward graph in their respective careers. Sushant Singh Rajput, Farhan Akhtar, Sara Ali Khan, Rajkummar Rao & Amit Sadh, to name a few were launched under his guidance.
