Kaalakaandi director anxious about the film’s release
Filmmaker Akshat Verma says he is nervous about the release of his film, starring Saif Ali Khan, since it comes with a lot of expectations
Director Akshat Verma is nervous, but not scared about the release of his film, Kaalakaandi, starring Saif Ali Khan.
“There’s bound to be anxiety. The last month has hardly seen any major releases. So, our film comes with a lot of expectations. These expectations don’t scare me though. They just make me anxious,” the filmmaker says.
Kaalakaandi is about a man (Saif) who discovers he has little time to live and how he utilises his remaining days on earth.
“It has been a trying time for me. Kaalakaandi was not easy to make. Now it’s getting released alongside Anurag Kashyap’s Mukkabaaz and Vikram Bhatt’s 1921. I have every reason to be intimidated, but I am not. We have done what we could. Now there’s nothing more we can do,” Akshat says.
The director took off for a 10-day visit to Los Angeles. “It was a stress-busting holiday. Being in India before the release of Kaalakaandi made no sense. We have already completed all our work. Now it is up to our producers to see the film to a smooth release,” he adds.
