He may have directed Shah Rukh Khan’s superhero magnum opus RA.One but Anubhav Sinha has now trained his sights on becoming a producer. Mirror has learnt that Sinha is all set to float a franchise by the name ‘Help’, under which he plans on making at least one film every year, bearing the title ‘Help’ and a tag line describing the film. Interestingly, these flicks will be modelled on the lines of the survival series, a genre that has always fascinated Sinha. Kick starting the ambitious venture, the director-turned-producer has bought the rights of two German films and one Spanish film, and will begin shooting for his first film by April.
When contacted, Sinha confirmed the news, saying, “Yes, I am starting this franchise. I call them survival films, a genre I have been very intrigued by. They will all be high concept films and I have already zeroed in on two of them that are German. Of these, one I am starting almost immediately. But apart from Offenes Wasser, I would not like to give out the names of these films although I have bought the rights.”
Incidentally, Offenes Wasser is based on a real-life story of a group of youngsters who got trapped in a sea infested by sharks and how a few of them actually managed to survive. Sinha More >
