Writer-director Nilakshi Sengupta has roped in Adil Hussain for her directorial debut, Blue: The Colour of Guilt. The film is a modern-day story set on the backdrop of the 1859 Indigo rise up in Bengal. The mission, written by Nilakshi, has been shortlisted in NFDC’s 2021 Co Production market of Film Bazaar.
Adil Hussain on being an element of this film primarily based within the UK’s New Castle upon Tyne, says, “Blue is a narrative that hasn’t been informed but. It’s one of the darkest hours of Indian historical past and it is a story that must be informed. And the best way Nilakshi has written the screenplay I believe it is one of essentially the most attention-grabbing methods to inform the story. I belief Nilakshi fully on this. The film has a giant likelihood of going locations throughout the globe. With the ideas and casting she has in thoughts, I’m certain we might be making a really excellent film, if not an amazing one.”
Nilakshi on the film’s topic shares, “The story of Indigo Rebellion is on the backdrop – an occasion that many Indians have forgotten and lots of International historians are unaware of. No film until date has included this topic but. The story offers with the collective ancestral guilt and the relationships of people in the present day. Those whose previous belongs to the oppressive British and people of the oppressed Indian. This is their story of modern-day interactions.”
Nilakshi has been a director-producer for over 20 years in promoting and company content material creation. She has additionally curated film festivals and authored the books ‘Tina and her magic Kettle’ and ‘Tina goes to Pompeii’.
