      "The story is more important than the record. Wewanted the film to be technically sound. It was a challenge toshoot a film that had no ''cut to'' parts. The film is based ondark humour and a twist that will shock the audience. We onlyhave one song, that too at the end of the film," he said.

      The action-thriller is produced by Arun S Deddhar(Star Smile Productions).

      "The movie is inspired by November 26 terror attacksand is also based on one of my plays ''Naya Rasta''. We haveused several references from the 26/11 attacks," Kashyap said.

      The makers claim Six Hours...'' is India''s longest oneshot film and made in two hours and 17 minutes. The previousrecords are held by Russian film Russian Arc'' (one hour 38minutes) and British movie PVC'' (one hour 84 minutes.) IndianTV show ''CID'' has a record of 111 minutes for an uncut scene.

      "Shooting the film called for excellent coordinationwith cameraman Vishal Singh, who used a Sony HD digitalcamera, endless rehearsals and a lot of running around due todemand of the script," Kashyap said.

      The film has skilled theatre actors like AvinashBhargav, Laila Panda, Sunil Chauhan, Raja Chauhan, Shiv Guptaand Arshad Khan.
