Kirti Kulhari becomes a producer with Nayeka and launches a production house


Kirti Kulhari has started her own production house called Kintsukuroi Films, whose first project will be a dark comedy thriller Nayeka in which she will star.

Speaking about this new venture, she says, “Starting a production house was an organic thought that stuck with me for a few years. As an actor, these last three years have been very fruitful for me and made me want to broaden my horizons and deepen other aspects of cinema. I now want to go further because I feel the need to support quality content and tell the world unique, rare and heartfelt stories. “

“The intention is also to create a more egalitarian and collaborative atmosphere in the process of making a film. Unfortunately, a hierarchy exists in the way things work and I would aim to bridge this gap, to embrace and respect the talent brought to the table on an equal basis. The idea is also to create opportunities for young talent…whether they are screenwriters, directors, actors, technicians,” she says.

Talking about the meaning of the production house’s name, Kirti says that “Kintsukuroi” is a Japanese word that means the art of repairing broken pottery with gold. The idea behind this thought is that when something is broken, gold is used to fix it, making it even more beautiful than its original broken state.

Early in her journey as a producer with the feature film Nayeka, Kirti said, “When Vashisht (producer) first introduced me to the film last year, I was immediately on board as a actor and I can proudly say that I couldn’t have asked for a better start to my journey as a producer too. The type of content I choose as an actor is pretty much the content I would like to create as a producer as well. Nayeka is a fun space for me to explore something I’ve never done before. It’s a fast-paced dark comedy thriller and features some very young, dynamic and talented people coming together. Director and screenwriter Ajaykiran Nair has done a wonderful job. A unique script like this is a perfect start to my journey as a producer.

Nayeka is the story of a struggling actress who mistakenly gets caught up in a crime…followed by a cat-and-mouse hunt leading to a crazy series of events, reveals Kirti who started filming for the film on January 2.
