‘Fortunate to work with JP Dutta; he’s a great technician’
Actor Sonu Sood, who is a part of JP Dutta’s upcoming movie Paltan, says the veteran filmmaker is a great technician.
Talking about working with Dutta, Sonu said, “JP Dutta is a great technician and I feel fortunate to be part of Paltan. Whatever we have shot in the last 50 days, I would like to say it’s kind of a life-changing experience for me. I hope when this film comes out in the next four-five months, every Indian will feel proud of it.”
Dutta is known for movies such as Border (1997), Refugee (2000), LOC Kargil (2003), and Umrao Jaan (2006). In 1998, he received the National Award for Best Feature Film on National Integration for Border.
The actor, along with the rest of the Paltan cast, recently wrapped up a 50-day schedule in Ladakh.
Talking about shooting in adverse conditions, Sonu said, “The kind of terrain that we are shooting in, I feel it’s a difficult film to shoot. We are shooting in places where there is less oxygen, temperature is also minus five or 10 degree Celsius, but I am enjoying it.”
Sonu, who was last seen in Tutak Tutak Tutiya (2016), is also trying his hand at producing films. He is backing a film based on the life of ace Indian shuttler PV Sindhu. Talking about the status of that biopic, Sonu said, “The script of that film is almost ready. Some actors whom I approached have heard the script and have liked it. Hopefully, we will announce the name of the actor who is going to play the role of Sindhu in our film this month itself.”
“I’m pretty excited, and we will start the shooting of the film early next year,” he added.
