It has been a while since actor Aftab Shivdasani has been away from the film industry . Recently, he and wife Nin Dusanj Shivdasani grabbed headlines on Monday announcing the launch of their production company Mount Zen Media which vows to curate a plethora of distinctive content, ranging from films, online shows and documentaries.
Aftab, who made his Bollywood debut as a child actor with sci-fi film “Mr India” (1987), eventually marked his debut as a lead actor with Ram Gopal Varma’s musical romance “Mast” in 1999, followed by up with Vikram Bhatt’s much acclaimed suspense thriller “Kasoor”. The actor, then went on to feature in several multi-starrers, including comedies such as “Awara Paagal Deewana”, “Masti”, “Hungama” and turned producer with “Aao Wish Karein” in 2009.
Aftab added both he and Nin were extremely eager to launch their own full-fledged production for a quite some time. “Having produced before I am familiar with the business of cinema. These are exciting times to develop content that is cutting edge, contemporary and appealing.
“Being in the industry for over 20 years has given me a great deal of experience in front of the camera and valuable insight in filmmaking,” the 42-year-old actor was quoted as saying.
Having a background of art, design, advertising and branding, Nin asserted, it would be really riveting to be involved in production where her expertise will be of paramount significance.
“I am excited for this new endeavour as there are so many fascinating stories to be told on this creative journey. Always intrigued by the art of storytelling, I look forward to working with a multitude of talent across various projects,” she added.
On the work front, Aftab will be next witnessed in the web series “Poison 2”.
