Director Shekhar Kapur has an animation film under his belt. Titled Suitable Cockroach, the film is being worked upon by animation studio, Prana. The music of the film is by A R Rahman, who has also worked with the producer on Elizabeth -The Golden Age.
The story of Suitable Cockroach revolves around the most hated Asian creature – the cockroach. What’s more, Kapur plans release the movie on the internet first, after which the theatrical release will follow.
Now that’s a brave move! Since, nowadays, you can get almost any latest movie on internet on the very day it’s been released (sometimes before it also!), it’s not a new thing… atleast unofficially!
And so he adds, “Downloads are the most expected returns for a film being out on net first. I will be setting a new trend (officially!).”
Kapur has been approached by some animation studios to ink film deals. He informs, “I am in talks with an animation studio called Animal Logic based in Sydney. It will be a one film deal.”
By the way, if you’re wondering… Shekhar is down in Mumbai to promote his film, Elizabeth: The Golden Age.
