Ashvin Kumar: Bollywood’s system has obviously failed
The Little Terrorist director, who is back with a thriller in the form of The Forest, speaks about making inroads into mainstream Bollywood and what keeps him going despite the faulty distribution system
It has been six years since the Little Terrorist was nominated for the Academy Awards, but director Ashvin Kumar is still waiting to see his feature film The Forest hit the screens. His baby has been lying in the cans for five years now. “The Forest was complete and ready to release five years ago. We had a distribution deal with a production company in place. But at some point they just stopped taking my calls. We had everything – high production values, thrilling content and decent actors,” he says.
PVR has finally decided to back the film which stars Nandana Sen, Javed Jaffry and Ankur Vikal and release it as a part of an initiative called Director’s Rare. Slated to hit the screens in the month of May, The Forest is a thriller where a husband and lover lock horns over a woman against the backdrop of a forest and a man-eating leopard.
