Shekhar Kapur goes the 'Eega' way
Filmmaker Shekar Kapur's new animated film is about a cockroach and has choreographed sequences too!
Now that’s an interesting choice of subject. Apparently while speculations are ripe that Shekhar Kapur is working on the cast of his next film Paani, the director has just finished an animated film on cockroaches. It even has music by A R Rahman and the songs are choreographed by Ahmed Khan. Last year, South director SS Rajamouli based his film Eega on a housefly.
A source says, “The film deals with the life of cockroaches and how they go about in their everyday routine. Shekhar has helmed the film along with a major animation studio. He will also market it along with a big Hollywood company.” Apparently there are also plans to have the film dubbed in Hindi.
Says Ahmed, “Shekhar called to tell me that he wants me to make a cockroach dance. I was initially surprised. Now, I am extremely excited about it. I have already completed two songs and will be choreographing another.” The scenes were shot with regular actors and the film was later animated.
