‘For­tu­nate to work with JP Dutta; he’s a great tech­ni­cian’

HT City - - Entertainment - IANS

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.
