‘Bombairiya’ our ode to Mumbai: British-born producer
New Delhi: “Bombairiya” is an ode to the city of Mumbai, a place full of contradictions and wonderment and where anything is possible, says British-born producer Michael Ward, whose wife Pia Sukanya has turned director with the film.
The “Bombairiya” cast includes Radhika Apte, Akshay Oberoi, Siddhanth Kapoor, Shilpa Shukla and Ravi Kishan.
“’Bombairiya’ is our ode to the city of Mumbai, a place full of contradictions and wonderment, a city where anything is possible… and like in our film, a city which can bring together strangers, turn them into ‘frenemies’ and eventually into buddies… all within the space of one day,” Ward said in a statement.
Sharing her experience of directing the film, Sukanya said: “Little did I think I would have to land up directing myself. But filmmaking teaches us how to cope with a new challenge each day. It’s been a wonderful experience shooting ‘Bombairiya’ so far and as we continue shooting, I anticipate even more challenges.
“But with the unwavering support of my producer Michael and my brilliant set of actors, every day on set throws up unexpected blessings”.
