Will Jackpot be Kaizad Gustad’s ticket to commercial cinema?

The filmmaker is known for his not so successful films but with this upcoming venture, he hopes to enter mainstream cinema

Filmmaker Kaizad Gustad, credited for movies like Bombay Boys and Boom, says his forthcoming project Jackpot is his effort to get a taste of the commercial zone of cinema. “If I may say so, then yes, Jackpot is a conscious effort to make a commercial film and to get into that zone. I have not made a film like this before. It is different from my previous films,” Gustad told a reporter.

It is after a decade that the filmmaker is back in business. He says he was busy with his family all this while. “I was busy with my personal life, my family, and I was also writing scripts. I think this is the right time for me (to be back),” he said.

Jackpot features Naseerudin Shah, Sachiin Joshi and Indian-Canadian adult film star Sunny Leone. Gustad is grateful to Naseeruddin for agreeing to be a part of the project, and he is happy that Sachiin and Sunny have done a wonderful job in the film.
