He stood shoulder-to-shoulder with Zoya Akhtar, Reema Kagti, Nitya Mehra and Alankrita Shrivastava as he co-directed the much-loved Amazon Prime series, Made In Heaven, closing year. However, earlier than the 2nd season goes on floors, Prashant Nair has made a sleek exit from the picture. The Spain-based filmmaker is rather ate up with bringing a real-life story to the screen.
"I am no longer section of the 2nd season as I am working on a internet collection primarily based on the Uphaar Cinema tragedy," says Nair, referring to the 1997 fireplace at the Delhi theatre that had claimed fifty nine lives and injured over a hundred people. "I am the show-runner, director and creator of the sequence that is being developed with Endemol Shine India. It's currently in the lookup phase," he adds.
It has been a memorable week for the filmmaker, whose trendy offering, Tryst with Destiny, gained the Best Screenplay award at the Tribeca Film Festival. "The organisers saved the opposition part open surely so that [the jury] can watch the links. When they introduced the win, I was once in my pyjamas at two am, feeling remarkably unglamorous, analyzing Danny Boyle's beautiful remarks on the movie," he laughs. Though happy that the Viineet Kumar Singh-starrer has acquired acclaim, Nair feels alternatively disconnected from the win. "I desired to trip this second with my forged and crew. And damn, we didn't even get a selfie with Robert De Niro [who is the co-founder of the festival]!"
