Filmmaker Subrat Dutta shares his take about 'Sameer'
Actor Subrat Dutta, who is all set for his upcoming commercial release Sameer, says that the film is not about terrorism but the idea of terrorism and what we can do about it.
During a media interaction, the actor said, “It is a fictional story, inspired by a series of 21 blasts that happened in Ahmedabad on July 26, 2008, where more than 56 people died and over 200 people were injured. It is a political thriller on recent political scenarios. It is not about terrorism, it's about the idea of terrorism and what we can do about it.Where did it start and why has it increased to such an extent in today's date. In 2017 where the world has developed so much, why is terrorism still proving to be a problem for us?”
Subrat will be seen essaying the character of an Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) officer, "On a subconscious level, I was inspired by the real life ATS officers while doing this role. The character is not very glamorous; it's like a normal simple man whose job is to encounter people”, said Subrat.
Talking more about the character he said, “How Mr.Desai deals with all the problems on the field, how he struggles to gather information, how he manages to work under pressure, that's the character is all about. I have managed to incorporate everything into the character to create Mr. Desai on screen."
Sameer also stars Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, Anjali Patil, Chinmay Mandlekar, Seema Biswas, Manoj Shah, Alok Gagdeka, and Master Shubham Bajrange. Directed by Dakxin Bajrange Chhara. The movie is set to release on September 8.
