Zubeen Garg is currently on a roll with two high-profile directorial ventures on hand, one of them currently under-production, in addition to a number of acting assignments which has certainly upped his productivity in the film industry. After ‘Mission China’, he will start shooting for his Bollywood directorial venture titled ‘Chakra’ from January 2016.
“Album is not happening for me right now. From January 2016, I will make a Hindi film called ‘Chakra’. It’s a political thriller. It’s a dark kind of film…about humanity and politics. Now, I’ve my own production house, so I will make three to four films in a row,” said Zubeen.
The singer, who has also recorded a song for John Abraham’s upcoming movie ‘Banana’, will be playing multiple roles in ‘Chakra’. “I will act, direct and write the screenplay,” said Zubeen.
He will share screen space with ‘Life of Pi’ actor Adil Hussain and Victor Banerjee.
The artiste, who has acquired cult status in Assam, has his own production house, but he is also looking to associate with another company in Mumbai.
“In Mumbai, I’ll have to tie up with another production house, otherwise I won’t be able to distribute the film all over India and abroad,” said the multi-talented artiste, who will also be working on two more Hindi scripts.
Without sharing the names of the other projects, he said the subjects will be “very different”.
