Most films have a run-of-the-mill cast- a hero, a heroine and of course, the big bad villain. But when producer Abis Rizvi and director Kamal Sadanah decided to make a film, they knew it shouldn’t be a ‘typical’ Bollywood movie.
The film Roar: Tigers Of The Sundarbans has definitely succeeded in breaking free from stereotypes. Exotic locales filled with danger, the mighty Sundarbans tiger playing an important role, complete with an ensemble cast has made Roar a force to reckon with. “When we started ideating for Roar, we knew it had to be different. Casting for the film was as difficult as shooting for the film itself. We wanted to ensure that each character is independent and had an interesting back story.” says producer Abis Rizvi. Agrees Kamal,”We had more than 600 auditions to narrow down our cast, and we didn’t rest until we knew we found the right fit for each role.” This cast then spent 40 action-packed days in the Sundarbans to shoot for the film and is now ready to enthral the audience.
Roar: Tigers Of The Sundarbans, produced by Abis Rizvi and directed by Kamal Sadanah releases on October 31st.
