He is the man behind fashionable looks of Bollywood divas, he is a well known figure in the fashion circles and guess Rocky S is ready to don a new hat…
Rocky S is turning a producer; is he taking a cue from Mozart of Madras AR Rahman? Well, we don’t know about that; but the man who has styled B-town divas and is responsible for their oh-so stylish appearances at events and dos will now look forward to a new role, “I’m very passionate about the movie industry. I’ve been styling films regularly, but I feel saturated now. And since direction isn’t my strength, the natural next step was production.”
The designer turned producer wants to mark his debut with a fun masala film under his production banner, E-Sense Motion Pictures and has roped in writer of Om Shanti Om and RA.One Mustaq Sheikh, “I want to start with a typical Bollywood commercial film, there’s no point in doing anything else when the whole country moves towards this kind of cinema, but once we’ve established the brand we hope to be able to produce more meaningful projects.”
The movie is slated to go on floors in the second half of 2014 and an excited Rocky doled out details of his pet debut project, but refused to divulge any info about his film’s lead actors, “I’ve left it up to Mushtaq to create the roles, and if any of my friends fit the bill, I will approach them. Depending on the budget, we’re also looking at being able to launch new talent.”
While we’re happy with Rocky’s latest achievement, the designer is definitely in a sticky situation considering a lot of his close pals like Bipasha Basu, Shilpa Shetty and Ameesha Patel must be vying for this role. We wonder if that is one reason why Rocky plans to take newcomers on board for his debut and not ruffle feathers with any of his actor friends. After all its always best to be safe than sorry and we’re sure Rocky knows this the best!
