Shiney Ahuja is all set to make a splash in Hollywood in the romantic sci-fi adventure Silver Cord, alongside former Batman and Saint, Val Kilmer. “He bowled me over,” says director James Ordonez, after seeing Shiney in Gangster. “I saw two more of his films — Life… In A Metro and Hazaaron Khwaishen Aisi. Intrigued by his work, I started watching several Bollywood films, and came back full circle when I realized that Shiney was the pivotal character for Silver Cord.” The film’s female romantic lead is Arielle Kebble and Ving Rhames also features.
Before starting work on Silver Cord, however, Shiney will be making a stealth movie with Soha Ali Khan called Accident. The mystery thriller will be shot in just 23 days to fit everyone’s schedules. Announced with little fanfare, Pritish Nandy of Pritish Nandy Communications, the producers, says, “At a time when no new films are being announced and big films are suffering for finances, we don`t think it`s right to start a film with any fanfare. Better to do it quietly. We complete Accident in 23 days.”
Next on the screens for Shiney, however, is Har Pall with Eesha Koppikar, Dino Morea and Preity Zinta. A love story about neighbours, the movie is directed by independent art cinema director Jahnu Barua.
