Sanjay Gupta : Producer, director, writer and editor. He is making a film Woodstock Villa, with Sanjay Dutt playing a cameo as a rockstar the song on Sanjay Dutt for Woodstock Villa
Sanjay Dutt makes a special appearance, yet a very integral part, that of a rockstar, in the film. Sanju liked what the famous band Aryans had composed for the song titled Kyun, and agreed to do it. This is the first time ever in Hindi films that a rock song of this kind has been picturised.
Hindi films do not generally have anyone with the rockstar image. Only Saif Ali Khan is known to be the rockstar of Bollywood and he has even performed live. I wanted to give Sanju the complete rockstar look as I knew he could carry it off well. For this, I dressed him in a long flowing printed coat, dark glasses, hair pulled back and holding the world best-selling star-shaped blue flame top Washburn Dime electric guitar.
The song as an “item” number
No. It has a proper place in the film and I promise you, it will not appear out of place. And believe me, this song will be the rock anthem of tomorrow.
Shooting the song
Kyun was shot during the end of last year at the Pauna Lake on the hills of Kamshet Dam near Khandala. It is a very beautiful and scenic location.
Woodstock Villa, the film
It is a suspense thriller handled in a very different way when compared to so many other films. It has a very new and natural look to it. I would like to say that it has been inspired from the late Vijay Anand’s school of filmmaking. Another interesting factor is that it has two new faces who have done a tremendous job.
Forthcoming films from White feather Films
There are films by Meghna Gulzar titled Milte Hai, Hansal Mehta’s Blade after Woodstock Villa, Pooja Bhatt ‘s heartfelt love story that is yet untitled , Rohit Roy’s film, Sarthak Dasgupta’s The Great Indian Butterfly, Suparno Varma’s Acid Factory and Sudipto Chattopadhyay’s Pankh.
