Director Mitali Ghoshal, who last made a documentary based on ace cricketer Saurav Ganguly, titled “The Warrior Prince”, is soon venturing into her new project, which incidentally has cricket as its backdrop once again and is titled “22 Yards”.
The movie will see television heartthrob, Barun Sobti, in the role of a cricketing agent, who manipulates everything about the working of the game. Barun, who had recently quit his popular show “Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon” for the sake of Bollywood career is presently attending workshops in Kolkata for his character. Barun will start shooting for the movie from May 2013 onwards.
This will be Barun’s second big screen outing, after his debut film, “Main Aur Mr. Right” which is post production stages and is likely to release in July 2013. Barun wants to do meaningful films which leave deep impact on the viewers mind. Since his current projects are keeping him busy Barun is refraining himself from signing small screen shows, at least for the time being.
