Amit Sadh, who is gearing up for the release of his forthcoming film “Raagdesh”, says he does not pick movies according to the actors it features but gives priority to the script. Ever since Amit made his Bollywood debut in 2010, he has mostly been seen in multi-starrers like “Kai Po Che!”, “Guddu Rangeela”, “Sultan”, “Akira” and “Sarkar 3”. His forthcoming projects include “Raagdesh” and “Gold”.
Asked why is he mostly seen in multi-starrers, Amit told IANS over e-mail from London: “First and foremost, the right people are key to a good movie and if they happen to be ‘stars’, then great! I don’t pay attention to titles like ‘stars’ if we get on well and the story is good, then I’m in.”
Directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia, “Raagdesh”, a period drama, tells the story of the Red Fort trials of three INA officers. It is slated to release on Friday. The film’s cast also includes Kunal Kapoor and Mohit Marwah. It is presented by Rajya Sabha TV and produced by Gurdeep Singh Sappal.
Amit is currently shooting for “Gold” in London. It’s a sports drama directed by Reema Kagti and produced by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar under the banner Excel Entertainment. This will be the second time after “Sultan” that he would be seen starring in the same genre.
The film will also mark the Bollywood debut of popular TV actress Mouni Roy. “Gold” is about India’s first Olympic medal win as a free nation in the year 1948 at the 14th Olympic Games at London. It will release on Independence Day in 2018.
