Backed by over a decade of solid industry experience and an undying passion for the movies, Shiladitya is now spearheading Platoon One Films Private Ltd aiming to provide a class act in film production, marketing, distribution & syndication. The freshly minted boutique studio already has an impressive slate lined up for this . Their projects include Hindi Romance drama feature, ‘Yours Truly’, directed by celebrated Indian filmmaker Sanjoy Nag (writer-director of ‘Memories in March’ - New Currents section, Busan International Film Festival). The film currently in Post-Production stage will see Soni Razdan, who has been directed by her husband Mahesh Bhatt in cult Hindi films like Saraansh, appear on screen with him for the first time in their illustrious careers. Razdan, who is also the mother of Bollywood darling Alia Bhatt, plays the protagonist Mithi Kumar in a superb ensemble cast along with Aahana Kumra (Lipstick Under My Burkha), Pankaj Tripathi (Newton, Bareilly ki Barfi),and Mahesh Bhatt in a special appearance.
