Soap-queen-turned-film-producer Ekta Kapoor’s younger brother, actor Tushaar Kapoor will flag off his production company Tushar Kapoor Motion Pictures early next year.

The actor confirms and says, “I’m producing Sagar Bellary’s Double Jhol in which I play a double role. There’s also director S Manasvi’s next which is a romantic film. I have already read Sagar’s script.”

Wonder why Tusshar flagged off his company when his sister runs two, Balaji Telefilms and Alt Entertainment, already? “I want to have creative control and make the kind of films that I like. This was the best way to do that. I prefer to be independent. I’ve bought a bungalow close to my parents’ house Krishna in Juhu, but I still haven’t moved in to it,” says Tusshar.

The actor asserts that he’s well versed with film collections, distribution channels, marketing strategies and production work. "I’m often asked for advice on films being produced under Balaji Telefilms or Alt Entertainment. The creative call, however, remains with the directors of the company. So, I have some experience too," says Tusshar who has completed shooting for Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal 3 and Neeraj Vora’s Run Bhola Run.

He’s shooting for his first Rajshri production, Love You Mr Kalakar, and working on promotion strategies for Balaji’s Shor that releases towards the end of this year.

Search is on
Meanwhile, Tusshar is also looking for medium budget scripts, directors and staff for his company, which will operate from the Balaji Office in Andheri or from his new bungalow in Juhu.

Wouldn’t that create
confusion between his sister Ekta and him? “No way,” he says. “As a producer, I’d like to invest out of my pocket at the outset which assures me complete control over my films. I will produce a couple of films in association with Balaji for emotional reasons.”
