Every frame of Abhishek Kapoor’s directorial ‘Fitoor’ (2016) was poetic and nothing less than a painting! Rightly hailed, the director gave the Indian touch to the classic writer Charles Dickens’ novel ‘Great Expectations’ with the film.
Starring Tabu, Katrina Kaif and Aditya Roy Kapur, ‘Fitoor’ was released on February 12, six years ago. Even after so many years have passed, Abhishek Kapoor’s romantic drama clubbed with Indo-Pak politics still remains one of the most beautifully captured films. The director brilliantly used the backdrop of Kashmir to take the narrative ahead and add visual appeal to the scenes. ‘Fitoor’s music album also became a massive hit among the audience.
While sharing his excitement on ‘Fitoor’ clocking six, Abhishek Kapoor said, “Working on a film imbued with such a grandiose scale, timeless literary depth and a fantastic team to see it through, is every filmmaker’s dream and I’m glad to have lived it with this passion project. It’s heartwarming to see how the music of ‘Fitoor’ never grows old. As a writer and director, getting under the skin of such complex characters and reimagining it as a contemporary tale has been a significant learning curve in my career and I’m so grateful for that. Sending out my love to the entire cast & crew who helped me realize this immaculate world where time stands still.”
Meanwhile, Abhishek Kapoor is riding high on the blockbuster success of ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’ (2021). Starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Vaani Kapoor, the film took on the bold subject of the transgender community and gave a thought-provoking story.
