Aadhaar starring Vineet Kumar Singh to be shot in Deoghar, Jharkhand
Mukkabaaz and Gold actor Vineet Kumar Singh’s upcoming film is based on the government’s Aadhaar card programme
After Mukkabaaz and Gold, up-and-coming actor Vineet Kumar Singh has zeroed in on a film titled Aadhaar. Directed by National Award-winning Bengali filmmaker and professor of economics Suman Ghosh, the film, as the title suggests, will be based on the government’s Aadhaar card programme. The film will be bankrolled by Manish Mundra’s production house Drishyam Films. Vineet Singh, in an exclusive interview with Cinema Express, reveals that Aadhaar will be shot in the city of Deoghar, Jharkhand.
“Deoghar is a wonderful little city. Our producer Manish Mundra is from there. Jharkhand is a beautiful state. I recently went down there for my research. I met people who have never ventured outside their surrounding villages. They have never seen the capital city of their own state, let alone other states and countries. It was a strange state of mind to discover. These people see airplanes flying in the sky and stare up in wonder. I have collected a lot of footage for my library,” says the actor.
Speaking about his character in Aadhaar, Vineet adds, “He is a very sweet, likable common man. He is totally different from Shravan Singh in Mukkabaaz. I sifted through numerous scripts before picking this character for my next. He will surprise you.”
When asked about the genre of the film, Vineet says, “As the title suggests, it’s a satire on what’s happening around us. There’s a lot of drama and humour too. You will see a reflection of our society in the film. We are not making the film to stir up controversy. It’s a very relevant, common man’s story.”
