Known for producing unconventional films, the production house Phantom Films have decided to venture out of their comfort zone and explore regional cinema. They have collaborated with CineMan to produce a Gujarati social thriller film titled Wrong Side Raju directed by Mikhil Musale.
The film, produced by Nayan Jain, Vikas Bahl, Vikramaditya Motwane, Madhu Mantena and Anurag Kashyap, revolves around Raju Ambani played by Pratik Gandhi a driver by day and bootlegger by night. He dreams big and as he falls for his lady love, he simultaneously gets trapped in a hit & run case that adds to his predicament and now, he finds himself caught in a web of lies and connivance.
While the trailer launch is all set to happen today, we hear that it will be done by none other than filmmaker Anurag Kashyap. This will be the first time that Phantom films will be entering the diaspora of regional cinema with this Gujarati film. ‘CineMan’ is termed as new age production house based in Gujarat, & they are credited for the revival of Gujarati Cinema.
Talking about the association, Anurag said, “Wrong Side Raju is an exciting story which explores the social fabric of Ahmedabad, and it comes from the guys who made Kevi Rite Jaish & Bey Yaar. For us, it’s always a good story that’s the key and we are happy to go anywhere for it. I am sure that not just in Gujarat, but the audience all over will love the film.”
