Sanjay Gupta’s ‘White Feather House’ dream comes true

After KAANTE, White Feather Films brings you PLAN, a story about four boys from different parts of India who want to make it big in Mumbai. They meet on the train and become friends. Each character has its own dream to fulfil. Every time they make a plan, something goes wrong. So, they hatch a master plan where they come across someone who turns out to be a gangster and then that's all we can reveal now.

Comparisons with KAANTE are inevitable, but producer Sanjay Gupta denies all such claims. We have made a conscious effort to be different. PLAN is a whole new approach to film-making. The story is quite different, he states.

Talking about Sanjay Dutt, Gupta says Sanjay is my production partner in White Feather Films. Apart from this, he is our friend, philosopher and guide. So, we try and keep him in each of our films. Apart from Dutt, the film also stars Dino Morea, Sanjay Suri, Bikram Saluja and Rohit Roy.

HRIDAY SHETTY PLAN also marks the directorial debut of Hriday Shetty, who was also involved in the making of KAANTE. PLAN is not your regular underworld, mafia or gangwar film. It's a film about four normal boys and how they get exposed to the world of crime, he says.

When asked why four relatively new actors were cast alongside Sanjay Dutt, Shetty says, We did not want the actors to be bigger than our story. But the new boys have worked really hard. They are completely into their characters. They were given bound scripts four months in advance and we also had discussions prior to the shooting. All this helped tremendously, Shetty adds.

SANJAY DUTT After acting in a dozen or more underworld sagas, Sanjay Dutt insists that this role in PLAN is a tad different from the rest. I play the role of Moosabhai. He is a dangerous character, but a kind of a comic don. In KAANTE, I played a serious and unpredictable character, but this one is a loving and kind guy, he insists.

Dutt is also happy with the respect he gets from all his juniors. I have been in this industry for more than 23 years and as such, I am their senior. But I try to make them comfortable on the sets and the boys are working really hard on their parts, he informs.

DINO MOREA Equally excited about his role is Dino Morea, who won accolades last year for his performance in RAAZ. I play the role of a guy called Bobby, who is a struggling actor. He approaches several producers and directors and hopes to make it big in Mumbai, but there are many obstacles in the way. He goes for a screen test and messes up even with the mahurat shot, says the model turned actor.

SANJAY SURI PLAN is more of a comic thriller where I play this street-smart guy called Lucky, who is adept at gambling and has been a winner all the way. He hopes to try his luck at big gambling dens some day. So, he moves to Mumbai, says Sanjay Suri, who is more than happy working with long-time idol Sanjay Dutt. Known to work in meaningful films with strong characters, he feels he has a winner on hand.

BIKRAM SALUJA Echoing his opinion is actor Bikram Saluja, who made his debut with a small role in FIZA and ROSHNI, which has still not seen the light of day. I play a sensitive and thoughtful guy from a small town who comes to Mumbai to meet his girlfriend, who has moved to Mumbai for her higher studies. Whether I get the girl or not, is for you to watch out, he chuckles.

ROHIT ROY PLAN also features the return to films of Rohit Roy, the dynamic model and television actor. My character in the film is called Omi. He comes to Mumbai to make money and to prove to his dad that he is not a good for nothing. Omi has a plan for every problem, he proudly announces.

In order to keep the male species hooked, the film also has femme fatales like Priyanka Chopra, Isha Koppikar, Riya Sen and one more actress, who is yet to be finalised. But if the director's words are anything to go by, The girls are not just forced into the film. They are very much part of the screenplay.
