The talented director shared how he got inspiration and confidence after Akshay Kumar and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra made films on sanitation issues.
Kamakhya Narayan Singh shares, “When I was preparing for my shoot, Akshay Kumar sir had recently announced that he is making a film on toilet and sanitation issue. Some people suggested that since Akshay Kumar is already making a film on this issue, you won’t be able to release this film well.
At the same time, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra sir also announced his film on sanitation issues. After my film shoot was done, I spoke to my college senior Amar Kaushik, director of the film ‘Stree’. He advised me that it is my narrative and how I see the story should matter and both the films have a different backdrop than my film.
He further added,” One thing that gave me confidence about the subject of my film is that it has been chosen by two stalwarts of the industry. I was convinced that I was in the right direction of selecting the topic. So I went ahead with it and when I saw Akshay sir’s Toilet – Ek Prem Katha, it inspired me because the kind of films he makes on social issues gives confidence to others to make a good film on such subjects”
The film has an ensemble cast of Nalneesh Neel, Devesh Rajan, Saveri Sree Gaur & Punya Prasun Bajpai. `Bhor` is produced by Anjani Kumar Singh of Gyanesh Films.
