Durban: Bolly stars in town for film shoot

2009-05-25 00:00

FLORIDA Road, an independent movie being produced by Sunworld Productions and focusing on the culturally diverse city of Durban, is currently being shot in the city.

The film tells the story of Shaan, a mid-20s Indian man with a heart of gold and a desire to write the next great Hollywood screenplay. He and his two brothers, Sanjay and Mani, moved to Durban from Mumbai because their parents wanted to provide them with a better life and career opportunities. Shaan, however, has yet to succeed. Then an untimely health issue hits the family, secrets are exposed and Shaan is forced to come to terms with life itself.

Florida Road, directed by Brad Glass, has been penned by Hollywood veteran Fred Fontana (whose credits include Soldier with Kurt Russell and The Specialist with Sylvester Stallone) and stars Bollywood’s Ashmit Patel (Muder, Banaras) in the role of Shaan.

Other cast members include Bollywood actors Vipin Sharma (Taare Zameen Par) as Shaan’s father, Raj, and Priyanshu Chatterjee as his brother Sanjay.
