Mumbai (UNI): After his award winning flick Iqbal director Nagesh Kukunoor is back with yet another film Dor starring Ayesha Takia, Gul Panag, Shreyas Talpade, Girish Karnad and Pratiksha Lonkar. Produced by Sahara One Motion Pictures with Executive Producer Percept Picture Company in association with Sic Productions (Executive Producer-Elahe Hiptoola.) - which had earlier presented Madhur Bhandarkar's Corporate - Dor, is scheduled for release this September.
Dor canvases the journey of two women from different worlds and how their lives come together through a tryst of destiny. It's a story about love, loss, friendship, hope and ultimately, redemption. ''We all look forward to Nagesh Kukunoor's films mainly because the subject and content is so out of the ordinary and captivating. One may not have anything to do with it but we all still immediately connect to it. And after Iqbal, we wanted to work with this talented director,'' said Shantonu Aditya, Chief Executive Officer Sahara One Media and Entertainment Ltd.
Nagesh says, ''Dor is my most challenging and dramatic film to date. The pristine locales, the spectacular cinematography and the soaring music all add up to make it a larger than life film. However, at its core, as in all of my films is the human element, the simplicity of the basic emotions that bind us all.'' 'Nagesh Kukunoor's perception on cinema is quite unique and it is a matter of immense pride for Sahara One Motion Pictures to be a part of this venture' says Sharang Sharma, Business Head Sahara One Motion Pictures. Written and directed by Nagesh Kukunoor, the film's music is by Salim Suleiman with sound by Vipin Bhati.
