The new film Alert, a psychological suspense thriller directed by South Indian director Sojan Joseph started filming in Goa on Tuesday. Produced by Hennry and written by Dilip Shukla (Dabangg), the film stars Sanjay Dutt, Raveena Tandon, Kabir Bedi, Anupam Kher, Mohan Kapur and Saurabh Shukla.
Raveena is raving about the script: “It’s a movie about six people who are trapped in a situation and struggling to get out of it”, she said. The actress also said she is really looking forward to work again with her “childhood crush” Sanjay Dutt with whom she has starred in many films in the 90’s, like Aatish, Zamane Sa Kya Darna and Jeena Marna Tere Sang.
Viveck Vaswani (“I am consultant, casting director, servant all rolled into one”) is thrilled about the first days on the sets in Goa. “What an absolutely brilliant performance Sanjay Dutt is giving in Alert! Big monologues in single takes! Unit so so happy in Goa!”
Sojan Joseph, whom Vaswani describes as “the new wizkid director from the South” who makes his Hindi debut with Alert, is shooting with five cameras simultaneously. Obviously Alert is going to be a quickie since the makers plan to release it already in November. But Vaswani is confident: “Alert is already ahead of schedule”, he tweeted on Wednesday.
Sounds like an interesting project, bringing Raveena Tandon back in a full-fledged lead role. We will keep our eyes out for all the scoop so check back often!
