Eleven In One: X – The Film

Posted on the 15 May 2013 by Haricharanpudipeddi @pudiharicharan

Eleven best filmmakers of the country join hands in making a first-of-its-kind feature film in Indian cinema. Not an anthology, but a full length film about one filmmaker, titled “X”.

Filmmakers such as Abhinav Shiv Tiwari, Anu Menon, Hemant Gaba, Pratim D. Gupta, Q, Raja Sen, Rajshree Ojha, Sandeep Mohan, Sudhish Kamath, Suparn Verma and Thiagarajan Kumararaja will direct this film, which will feature actor-director Rajat Kapoor in the lead.

The eleven filmmakers met in Mumbai last weekend to brainstorm and lock their individual segments after initial interaction for over six weeks.

“What started out as just a random idea has blown into this big and brilliant exercise in collaboration of minds and exchange of ideas across genres,” said Sudhish Kamath, who was instrumental in the idea in a statement.

“In one film we are trying to mix these different textures that have made these directors win audiences from across the globe,” he added.

‘X’ is a filmmaker’s journey through his past encounters with his 10 ex-girlfriends as he spends one surreal unforgettable night at a film festival after he meets a mysterious girl who intriguingly seems to have something to do with every woman in his life.

The film, which is already into production, is being produced by Manish Mundra. It will be shot in 20% Bengali, 10% Tamil, 30% Hindi, 30% English and the rest is silent.

“It’s so exciting to have these amazing and talented filmmakers come together for such an ambitious film. ’X’ brings the best of new-age Indian cinema on a platform that can reach out to all kinds of audiences all over”, said producer Manish in the statement.

The film is getting ready for release later this year.

“What’s fascinating about the project is that in one film, you have such diverse voices with such varied visions come together… I had to get involved and say: You guys focus on the film and don’t worry about anything else, I’ll figure out the finances and production,” added Shiladitya Bora, Executive Producer.
