Two years ago, Sanjay Gupta’s agents in Los Angeles sent him the link of the Venezuelan film, Rock, Paper, Scissors (2012), which was the country’s official entry for the Oscars that year. The remake rights were up for grabs. After watching the drama, Gupta knew that it was the perfect recipe for a slick Bollywood thriller. That’s how he started his journey for Visfot, the Fardeen Khan and Riteish Deshmukh starrer that goes on floors today. “During the first lockdown, we commissioned writers Hussain and Abbas Dalal to [adapt] the film,” begins Gupta.
The film will mark Khan’s return to Bollywood after 11 years.
The filmmaker has handed the directorial baton to Kookie Gulati, who helmed The Big Bull earlier this year.
