Mumbai, Jun 11: E Niwas’ upcoming directorial venture, a suspense thriller film titled “Gumnaam”, will be shot on an island in Mauritius.
Niwas’ last release was Pakistani actor Ali Zafar-starrer “Total Siyapa”.
“The film will be shot mostly on an Mauritius island, some portions will be shot in Mumbai and Delhi as well,” Niwas told PTI.
The filmmaker insisted his film is not a remake of the 1965 superhit suspense movie “Gumnaam” featuring Manoj Kumar and Nanda in the lead.
“Except the title and the title song ‘Gumnaam’, there is no similarity with the original film. Ours is a suspense thriller film about various people from different walks of life, coming together, who are not friends with each other,” Niwas said.
The film’s producer Jayantilal Gada also said that the upcoming film has nothing to do with the original one.
“We have bought the rights of the title song ‘Gumnaam’ from Saregama. We have a writer working on the script,” Gada added.
The film will go on floors by August-September and the makers are planning to release it early next year. PTI
