Received this message from Manav Vigg, a young Delhi based movie maker, who had just finished his first feature film, along with friends. Read and help in whichever way you can.
WITH LOVE, DELHI! is my 1st Bollywood film as Film Producer, a dream that I, like millions others, cherished since long but it was unbelievably tough to make it as I did not have a single contact in Bollywood and was just a middle class Chartered Accountant with hardly any financial backing to make a film :(.
However, dreams do come true and as a team we did it: I am extremely emotional and proud to present you the 1st look trailer of the film on youtube – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=luZPqtXbkzM (or simply search “with love delhi” on youtube) – awaiting your comments on the same. If you like this 1st look trailer, we would be obliged if you can please forward this mail to everyone on your mail’s contact list and post the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=luZPqtXbkzM on your Facebook wall, Twitter page etc., we really need your support!
USP of Cast & Crew
Introducing Ashish Lal and Pariva Pranati as the lead pair, this film has its Lead Actor, Producers, Director and Writers engineers from IIT Delhi who have joined hands with some of the most talented Bollywood cast and crew viz. Padma Shri Tom Alter (2008 – for his distinguished contribution in the field of Arts), National Award Winner Seema Biswas (1996 – for Shekhar Kapur’s “Bandit Queen”), veteran Kiran Kumar, National Award Winner Cameraman S.Sriram (2000 – for his film “Blindfolded”), Filmfare & Star Screen Awards Winner Editor Namarata Rao (2011 – for Love Sex Aur Dhokha & Band Baaja Baaraat respectively), a veteran music scholar Music Director Sanjoy Chowdhury and an experienced Associate Producer Ravi Sarin (2011 – awarded Best Line Producer of Delhi).
The Story Behind the Curtains
Have you seen the 3 Idiots? Are they Aamir Khan (after engineering from a top institute, teaches kids in Ladakh), Sharman Joshi (after engineering does job on his own terms) and Madhavan (after engineering opts for wildlife photography)? Yes, but that’s in reel life, in real life they’re Ashish Lal (Engineer from IIT Delhi – now a Film Actor), Ashutosh Matela (Engineer from IIT Delhi – now a Film Director) and Manav Vigg (Chartered Accountant – now a Film Producer)!
These 3 Idiots, sar se paun tak shudh middle class, with not a single contact in Bollywood (didn’t know even a spot boy 😦 ), have made a full length commercial feature film: WITH LOVE, DELHI!, a suspense thriller cum romance Bollywood film. Arranging crores to match the standards of a good Bollywood film was possible only through scores and scores of friends and relatives who supported us, some with 50k to some with 20lacs but each to the best of their financial abilities. Who says people don’t support, especially not financially, for passionate dreams of others, they do!
With the financial support of so many friends and relatives, we’ve made a humble attempt to create a quality film with a sensible and entertaining storyline. We really hope that in case you find this film interesting and of good quality, please forward this mail or share the youtube link on Facebook, Twitter etc.
Thanks a ton…all we 3 Idiots can say is “Hey Bhagwan, Katrina aur Kareena ko bhi behen ki nazar se dekhenge, bas yeh film hit kara dena” :))!
