Apoorva Lakhia is all geared up to release his first production Hide & Seek directed by his erstwhile assistant Shawn Arranha. Having assisted Apoorva right from the days when even he was an assistant, Shawn has learnt the art of narrating stories well.
However, Apoorva has worked with several top notch names to date, but Shawn and Apoorva decided to cast relative newcomers in Hide & Seek. What prompted them to cast relative newcomers this time? "Two reasons. One, had we cast well-known actors, the audience would've guessed the killer at the very outset. With new faces, you keep guessing till the very end," Apoorva states. Second reason? "It would've taken a long time to procure the combination dates of established names. Hence, the new cast," Shawn adds.
While Shawn hasn't decided on his next venture, Apoorva is ready to direct Ashtavinayak's new venture, which will star Sanjay Dutt, Anil Kapoor, Suniel Shetty and Nana Patekar (talks are on with him) in pivotal roles. "We hope to add two more actors to the cast," Apoorva reveals.
