With the ongoing corona crisis in the country, film production and shooting has taken a backseat. Many production houses and movie makers have stopped their projects owing to the complete lockdown situation in the country.
One of the most eagerly-awaited films of this year is producer Vipul Amrutlal Shah’s ‘Sanak’, starring Vidyut Jammwal and directed by Kanishk Varma. The action-packed movie poster launched at the beginning of this year has created immense anticipation amongst the audience and fans.
Talking about the same, director Kanishk Varma informs, “While the audience has seen and enjoyed some of Vidyut’s signature action moves in films over the years, they will get to see a different side of him in ‘Sanak’. We have mostly seen Vidyut portraying a Commando or Special Force guy in movies so far, but in ‘Sanak’, he plays a common person and has a past related to Mixed Martial Arts. How he fights as a common man sets the action tone for the film.”
“The movie features a very different style of action. It’s like balletic action, having a certain rhythm to it. With Vidyut, it becomes easy to shoot because he is such a brilliant martial artist in his own right that he needs to remember the action choreography. My brief to Andy Long (Hollywood stunt choreographer) was that the action should look like a ballet. We wanted to shoot long takes, and that’s where I think the audience will get a glimpse of action the film has,” Kanishk adds.
Vidyut Jammwal shares, “‘Sanak’ is about a commoner’s emotional journey, and the action sequences have been choreographed and tailored accordingly. It was a conscious decision to create our niche using Kalaripayattu as the background of an MMA fighter. The action in the film is new, original and path-breaking. It will certainly inspire action junkies all over the world. The fans of the action genre will enjoy watching the sequences as much as I did performing them.”
Producer Vipul Shah, who has collaborated with Vidyut for the fifth time, shares, “With every film, we are trying to create a new style of action with Vidyut, and that’s what he has cracked again with Andy Long, who has worked extensively with superstars like Jackie Chan and others. We have created different sets for different action sequences. While every action scene is set within the hospital premises, it will still look different since every section is different. That’s how it has become a unique experience to shoot the action scenes in ‘Sanak’.”
Starring Vidyut Jammwal and debutant actress Rukmini Maitra, the movie also features Neha Dhupia and Chandan Roy Sanyal in a pivotal role. Presented by Zee Studios in association with Sunshine Pictures, ‘Sanak’ is a Vipul Amrutlal Shah production, being directed by Kanishk Varma.
