There were reports recently that Resul Pokutty’s maiden production, called ‘Piharwa’, was to star Alia Bhatt, However, Pookutty has since issues a clarification.
“I had approached her with the script of ‘Piharwa’, which I had developed during the lockdown. While she loved it, she told me she wouldn’t be able to take it up for two years as she had other commitments lined up. And I can’t be waiting that long,” said Pookutty, talking to E Times.
Pookutty also revealed he’s awaiting to get other projects out too, “I am tying up with a production house and we have almost shaken hands; there’ll be an official announcement soon. The second film will be a remake of the 2015 South film ‘Premam’. I have some fresh and lovely stories and strong content that nobody can say ‘no’ to unless they have genuine date issues. I am also finishing my work on the projects–‘Chehre’, ‘Mumbai Saga’, ‘Haathi Mere Saathi’ (trilingual), and a web series–which had come to a standstill due to the lockdown”.
