Directed by Ajay Singh, AGPS is a short film about challenging the middle class mindsets of people who have a narrow approach to Film making as a career option.
The film is not your conventional Bollywood masala entertainer. It would be tough to get a good coverage and if it does, it might not get a positive response with the Indian audience who prefers light comedies and mushy romances. Then how will this boost Nakuul’s career? “I don’t look at cinema as commercial or non-commercial. The film will be getting exposure to the huge festival circuit and if it becomes famous worldwide, there is a huge chance that it would be released in India as well. As of now the audience is European and North American,” replies Mehta.
The film is approximately 25 minutes long. Plans are in place to present the film at various European and American festivals. Right now, the film is in the final stages of post production and should be ready by the middle of July this year!
