Actor Kirti Kulhari has launched his own production house called Kintsukuroi Films, whose first project will be a dark comedy thriller Nayeka in which it will appear.
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 immerse myself in 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 footing. The idea is also to create opportunities for young talent…whether they are writers, directors, actors, technicians,” says Kulhari.
Talking about the meaning of the name of the production house, Kirti expresses, “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.
Likewise, with my production house, through the stories I aspire to tell, I wish to mend broken hearts and fill the void in people’s lives through the art of filmmaking. Producing content that helps people heal their brokenness is the core idea behind the name of the production house.
At the start of her career as a producer with a feature film Nayeka, Kulhari said, “When Vashisht (producer) first introduced me to the film last year, I was immediately on board as an actor and I can proudly say I couldn’t have dreamed a better start for my journey as a producer. 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 about 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 to shoot for the film on January 2.
Directed and written by Ajaykiran Nair, Nayeka is produced by Yatin Gupte and Sajid Melek’s Ward Wizard Entertainment, Vashisht Upadhyay and Kirti Kulhari’s Kintsukuroi Films.
