The cinematographer will be donning the director's hat for the first time for the remake of the Spanish thriller Julia's Eyes.
Remember classics such as Taal, Pardes and Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai? The cinematographer of those films, Kabir Lal, is back in action and this time, he's donning the director's hat for the first time for the remake of the Spanish thriller Julia's Eyes.
Speaking to Cinema Express, Kabir says, "It's a thriller with plenty of scope for the main lead. It's a female-oriented film, and I'm approaching some top actors." The film's an emotional drama, he adds. "It's about twin sisters, one of whom commits suicide after she goes blind, and the other, whose eyesight is also getting worse by the day, tries to figure it all out."
Kabir, who has more than 100 films to his credit as a cinematographer, has partnered with Hollywood director, Param Gill, to get the all-India rights for the film. He will also be producing the project. "For now, I'm planning to make it in Tamil and Telugu. Based on the actor we choose, we will decide if it will be a bilingual. Once the film is done in Tamil and Telugu, we will look to make it in other languages as well," he says.
The film will go on the floors from July, and more details on the cast and crew are expected soon.
