Director Manish Tiwary back with ISSAQ team for his next titled “Chidiakhana” shoot begins in Mumbai
Manish Tiwary returns with his ISSAQ team with a diametrically opposite theme. The shoot has kicked off in South Mumbai last week with Prashant Narayanan, Rajehswari Sachdev, Ravi Kishan and others.
The twist in the tale comes in the form of love interest which has reversed in this film. While Issaq had Ravi Kishen as Rajeshwari ‘s love interest, in Chidiakhana, the roles have been reversed; it is Prashant Narayanan opposite her!
Titled Chidiakhana, the film is about a young Bihari boy, with a passion for football. He has come to live with his poor mother under difficult conditions in a Mumbai chawl, when protection comes from unexpected quarters; a local Marathi gangster, played by Prashant Narayanan comes to their rescue and gives wings to their modest dreams.
Said Manish Tiwary, “I have been wanting to make this film for the longest. Luckily Sports films is current flavour and is finding better acceptance amongst audience. It’s particularly ENCOURAGING to get our casting right. Films and sports both need a great team to succeed and am happy to have found one.“
Speaking to the media, Chairperson of CFSI Mr. Mukesh Khanna is happy to support original films with established filmmakers. In Chidiakhana, there was a story waiting to be told and we are happy that director Manish Tiwary is helming the project.
