The lead actor for the film, which will be developed into a franchise at a later stage, hasn’t been decided yet. “Besides an Indian lead, we might have some Hollywood ‘goras’ and other natives to play peripheral characters,” Amrish says, adding, “It’s high time India comes up with an original franchise with international appeal. So, the most important facet of the story is a universal theme that evokes cinematic emotions.”
The film will go into production by the year-end. Amrish has taken inspiration for the script from the recent natural disaster in Japan, tsunamis and hurricanes in South East Asia and USA, and volcanic eruptions in Europe. “Do we realise the dangers that we are surrounded by, and what if people with ulterior motives find a way to manipulate Mother Nature?” Amrish asks.
