They say, you don’t take a shot (in films)…..you make a shot” After meeting Anmol Kapoor, the Producer & think tank behind his soon-to-release international films “Phullu” & “Palki”, we actually realised that it’s the Producer who enables the entire unit on the set to find themselves & lose themselves at the same time. A producer’s responsibility is primarily to the original vision of the film; it is to ensure a balance between the artistic integrity and the practical requirements. And that’s exactly what we figured out in a short rendezvous with Anmol Kapoor.
Light hearted Anmol believes “I love music and movies and I do believe that through entertainment, many more people could be educated about various challenges faced by humanity” says the recipient of Bharat Ratna, Hind Rattan, Parvasi Rattan in May 2015 and in Sept 2015 and Mahatma Gandhi Award who embarked upon the much awaited International movie ” Palki” which was shot in India and the entire crew including Post Production was done by best of Hollywood technicians. The film which has been sent to Cannes Film Festival stars- Piyush Mishra, Ritika Anand, Rajesh Sharma, Vibha Chibber and special appearance by Dr. Kumar Vishvas. “Palki” that touches issues of women empowerment and education will have International Music and special songs from Piyush Mishra, Arif Lohar, Gagan Kokari and others.
Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent & it’s not where you take things from – it’s where you take them” that’s exactly how the film “Phullu” was born & shaped up by Anmol Kapoor. After receiving rave reviews for their last Punjabi Film – ‘Patiala Dreamz’ which was released worldwide in year 2014, the dynamic duo- Anmol Kapoor & Abhishek Saxena gear up for their upcoming hindi film- “Phullu”.
Film “Phullu” which will be raising women health issues will star National Award Movie (Filmistan) actor Sharib Hashmi in the main lead & Kshitij Chaudhary as the co- producer. This film’s story, concept and execution is touted to be on the stature of International Caliber and Anmol feels confident that it will win National and International awards. The makers of the film also partnered with International Platinum Selling Artist Raqhav and released a single with Abhishek Bachchan, Nelly Furtado. The video was shot in Africa, where the makers of the video raised issues of lack of electricity in Africa’s continent and other countries.
Anmol Kapoor’s dedication and dream to “make a change in the society” doesn’t end here. He will also be releasing Dr. Kumar Vishvas’s single on Drug abuse in Punjab and will be proudly releasing the single worldwide.
Anmol’s ability to understand the audience and how he needs to communicate with them, mixed with his passion for storytelling, his knowledge of technology & his ability to oversee every aspect of a major production makes one of the most sorted Producers “I am proud of above mentioned films and music projects as they not will raise important social and health women issues but also will be entertaining. I can’t wait to showcase these amazing films to the world and spread awareness about various women issues through a medium which has a mass appeal”
