Mumbai, March 7 (IANS) Noted art director Chetan Pathak, who has worked with some of the best filmmakers of the country, worked free of cost for family comedy “1982- A Love Marriage” as he was impressed with its script, said lead actor Amitkumar Sharma.
“Pathak worked with immense perfection. Five years back, when we were working on a project, he had promised me that he wouldn’t charge me any fees if I made my film. He really liked the script of ‘1982-A Love Marriage’ and even brought his entire creative team in a bus for my film.
“He was engrossed with the legendary Shyam Benegal’s project at that time, but still he somehow took out the time and raised the art direction on my film to a different level. And like he promised, he didn’t charge me a penny,” Amitkumar told IANS.
The art director-production designer has also worked with film makers like Mani Ratnam, David Dhawan, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, and Mansoor Khan among others.
“1982-A Love Marriage”, directed by Prashant M. Gorey and produced by ShivKumar Sharma, also stars Omna Harjani. It is releasing on March 11.
