Satish Kaushik, Dev Benegal’s film Dead End selected for HAFF

Satish Kaushik and Dev Benegal’s association during Road, Movie turned out to be a boon for these filmmakers, after which the two decided to script a movie based on a real story titled Dead End. And now, the script has been selected from 29 scripts across 11 countries by the Hong Kong Asia Film Forum for international collaboration.

Satish Kaushik who is enthralled about this, said that the film is based on a real life story. “I have bought the rights for this film from the man who lives in Azamgad. The man had undergone a torture of 18 years trying to prove his existence after his family robbed him off his property and proved him dead.” Satish, however, believes the reason behind this achievement should be attributed to Dev Benegal. “Dev wanted the world to know this story. And then, he built it up in his own way as he has the knack of making it in a way that will appeal to the international masses.”

While Satish Kaushik is looking out for collaboration with major international production houses for funding his film, he maintained the film will be totally Indian. “Though the crew will be international, the actors will be Indian. It will be shot majorly in the North. In fact, Dev wants me to play the role of a protagonist,” says Satish.

An official announcement about the cast and crew details will be made post the festival which will be held from March 24-26 this year in Hong Kong.
