Karan Malhotra on ‘Brothers’ – Director’s Note
Read on to find out what director Karan Malhotra has to say about his next directorial venture, Brothers, starring Jackie Shroff, Akshay Kumar, Jacqueline Fernandez and Sidharth Malhotra.
“Brothers is a film that is special to me for many reasons. This film came into my life at a point when I was going through a phase of tremendous personal and spiritual growth. It is a story that evolved from a space of acceptance, resolution and forgiveness.
In a way, it was a hard film for me to tackle, because as an individual, I had never before ventured into a space of ‘greys’ in my life – It had almost always been black or white for me.
Brothers gave me the cathartic opportunity to explore those unexplored areas, through the lives and journeys of the main characters in the film.
Brothers is my tribute to family, an ode to relationships as I’ve come to understand them. And none of this would have been possible without the unconditional and relentless support of my team – all the technicians, and the entire cast and crew. Thank you!”
Produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, the film will release in UK cinemas on 14th August 2015 through 20th Century Fox.
