Kolkata-based entrepreneur Vimal Lahoti, who is the Joint MD of Thinkink Picturez, has teamed up with filmmaker Raaj Shandilyaa to produce their latest film ‘Janhit Mein Jaari’. Raaj and Vimal co-founded Thinkink Picturez, which is listed company with a market cap of 180 crore.
Talking about the film, Vimal says, “I’m really elated to work with Raaj Shandilyaa. He’s extremely talented filmmaker with a vision. As a producer, I am always looking for films that are content driven and stand out. I believe in producing good films with entertainment value. I want to produce films with a social message and humour. ‘Janhit Mein Jaari’ is an extraordinary film with a social message. We have worked really hard on this project and I’m hoping that the audience will appreciate it.”
Apart from this film, Lahoti’s future projects include a web series with Jio Studios titled ‘The Great Weddings of Munnes’. “I’m really looking forward to the release of The Great Weddings of Munnes. It’s a fun web series and the audience will definitely enjoy it. I also have more than 10 films in pipeline with various filmmakers and studios,” he adds.
