Film-maker Aanand L Rai made his debut as a producer with Nil Battey Sannata. He is currently producing three other projects. Apparently, he makes it a point to make his directors comfortable. “He tries to meet the requirements of his directors. He also likes to involve himself completely in the projects,” says the source.
One of the movies being produced by Aanand is being directed by Navdeep Singh. The two recently took off to Rajasthan to scout for locations. “The action-drama is based in the 18th century. The location needs to depict the era during which the Battle of Buxar was fought between the British East India Company, and the combined forces of the Nawabs of Bengal and Awadh and the Mughal Emperor, Shah Alam II. To get the landscape right, it will be shot in parts of Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. They are therefore scouting for a location in Rajasthan,” says the source.
