Nishant Tripathi and Abhishek Mishra, two educationists from Chattisgarh turned Bollywood producers after listening to a storyline from Manish Manikpuri
The story captured the conflict in society with music providing the resolution. Says Abhishek, “Aalaap has a great story on friendship, love, music, politics, revenge and violence. The film explores the different sides of Naxalism.
It looks at how this affects and involves people from different sections of our society.” Nishant adds, “It’s about courage, taking risks and challenges, and a vision to make a difference. And since we needed powerful music to make a point, we chose Agnee. And they have more than lived up to our faith.”
Shri Shankaracharya Arts Pvt Ltd’s Aalaap, that releases on July 27, revolves around three aimless youngsters, who share one common passion, music. They form a rock band, only to realise that there are greater problems that need to be tackled in Naxalism-infested Chattisgarh.
