It's not a very easy task today to find good shooting locations for a film as a location once shot in a film gets exposed and becomes a prime location for yet another film. Thus this does not provide variety to the audiences and they seem not very interested to watch the film with the same locations. But today the big budget films of Bollywood have found out a good and feasible solution to this problem; yes that is creating their own sets.
Recently the same strategy has been used by Producer Kreeshann Choudhary and Neeraj Pathak for their upcoming film named Right Yaa Wrong. The set is created at a five star hotel in Juhu, Mumbai and the set appears to be nothing less than a big mansion. The hugeness of the set is resembled by the fact that it has a big swimming pool in it. The set is fenced by walls on all the four sides and there is a security guard available on each door entrance. The security guards are safe guarding the set and each one of them is carrying a walky-talky for emergency situations. With the available security and the set up, it is not only impossible for any human being to enter the place without permission; but also very difficult for even a sparrow to get in to the place. All this is done because the producers and the director of the film are shooting important scenes of the film with super stars of Bollywood like Sunny Deol, Irfan Khan, Konkana Sen Sharma and others and they do not want any kind of distraction or disturbance during the same.
This mansion has a big living room as a part of the set where the shooting is going on. The scene starts with Sunny Deol sitting with a child in this living room. Konkana enters the room with some papers in her hand. She has a dialogue with Sunny Deol and then she leaves the room. Immediately after she leaves, Irfan Khan enters the room and Sunny and he have some furious discussion. Director Neeraj Pathak has been taking care of the entire shoot along with Producer Kreeshann Choudhary. Even though it is the debut film of Producer Kreeshann Choudhary, he seems to be so enthusiastic and in control of the entire working of the film. Coming back to the scene, Irfan Khan speaks to Sunny Deol and tells him "Your next meeting would not be with a friend; but will be with a Police Officer" and leaves the room. The shot is Okayed by the director and then they move on to discuss the next shot with the cast and the crew.
The global and corporate culture of the growing film industry has attracted a Delhi based enthusiastic and art-loving Mr. Kreeshann Choudhary to make good films. Producer Kreeshann Choudhary is making his debut film "Right yaaa Wrong" with Sunny Deol in the main lead. Recently when we met Mr. Kreeshann at his very beautiful made office at Mhada, Andheri, he warmly told us about his plans and developments related to his film "Right yaaa Wrong". Krishna ji also told us about him basically being from Delhi and having a family business of builder and development. He also said that he has been very actively interested in making films since the past but unfortunately nothing could work out. Recently he has been able to form a production company named "Ikkon" along with his partner Neeraj Pathak. This is how this company 'Ikkon' will play the role of a corporate production house and its first film is Right yaaa Wrong.
Thus Kreeshann Choudhary has made a very professional beginning with his film Right yaaa Wrong by making Subhash Ghai as its presenter of the film. The film will be presented by Subhash Ghai's Banner -Mukta Arts. Kreeshnn Choudhary speaks about this at length to us. He said, "The writer and director of this film is Mr Neeraj Pathak. Neeraj and Mr. Subhash Ghai know each other quite well as Neeraj has been the writer of Ghai Saahab's film 'Pardes' and recently he has done the script writing of his film Apne. Due to the existing relationship between them, when Neeraj discussed the story of this film with Ghai Saahab, he readily accepted the offer to present the film. The main cast of the film Right yaaa Wrong is Sunny Deol, Irfan, Konkana Sen Sharma, Isha Koppikar, Kiron Kher, Shelly and Aryan Veid. The music of the film is given by Monty Sharma and the lyrics are given by Sandeep.
About having Sunny Deol in his film Director Neeraj Pathak tells us, "After the successful film Apne I narrated the story of "Right yaaa wrong" to Sunny Deol and the story really excited him a lot. He quite liked the film and was impressed by the freshness of it. He happily accepted to work in the film and gave consecutive 3 months' dates to make the film from start to finish.
About the story Director Neeraj Pathak says, "The film is an out and out thriller and will be liked by all age groups. Sunny and Irfan, both are playing the role of police officers, where as Konkana Sen Sharma plays a lawyer. Isha plays the wife of Sunny in the film. Both the characters played by Sunny and Irfan are well highlighted in the film and the audience shall certainly like it. "He furthers says, "This film is not like a routine police officer thriller but is very different from the normal league. It has a social message, emotions, fear, threat, love and hatred. In short it is a blend of various emotions presented in a very mild manner that will really attract the audiences. Not much can we talk about this scene as this scene is a very important turning point of this thriller film and the story will be revealed if we say much. When time comes we will talk about its story".
Being a thriller what are the songs of the film like? "The film has a very great story line and every song corresponds well to the incidents that they are shot at. Thanks to Mr. Subhash Ghai for his personal attention to the songs that we have managed to get a set of 5 good songs in the film. The music is being made under the supervision of the great music lover Mr. Subhash Ghai and this is the reason that I am very confident about the music in my film."
Kreeshann Choudhary has made arrangements to get the dates of all the stars of the film in such a way that he is able to release the film by March – April 2008. About choosing Mr. Monty Sharma to do the music of the film, he said, "Monty Sharma is an upcoming music director. He is a great music arranger. He has a good sense of music and is highly professional at his work. He has got tremendous passion towards music and has a great potential. That is why we chose him for our film. His job in the film is commendable. He has made good melody for the ears. His debus film is ' Sanwariya 'which is releasing shortly.
"Right yaaa Wrong" is 'Ikkon's' first film. Which are the other films in the pipeline for Ikkon? Kreeshann Choudhary says," With 'Ikkon' we have chosen a very corporate attitude in the film market. Though it is not very easy to remain a single producer and make films in Bollywood, but I definitely plan to atleast make 2 films in one year. Other films would be made taking care of the prevailing situations and conditions then. But I ensure that I am here to make the best films."
