13 years ago when in 2001 I wrote SHAB my friend Raveena Tandon was supposed to act in the film. Finally 2014 and I will get to shoot my first and a very precious script. Thrilled that once again Raveena is a part of the film. That was the film's destiny ..... SUCH A LONG JOURNEY. A desire to work together finally fulfilled in 14 years. We first met in the sets of Kalpana Lajmi's Daman. Thats where I met #RaveenaTandon and . Thats how the first draft of Shab was written with them in the leading roles. So looking forward to working with the gorgeous actress. :)

Here's what ASHISH BISHT, male lead of #SHAB has to say about the film and about his association with #Onir.

"I first met Onir and Amar (Associate) in Delhi, during the auditions for I AM. Even though I got rejected, I was lucky to get noticed by Onir, whom I admire a lot. His movies always leave a mark on you. He dares to make movies on sensitive and unconventional topics... topics that mostly people shy away from. I feel very lucky to have been chosen as the lead for SHAB by Onir. It is like a dream come true for me, as from the moment I read the script I knew that I have to be a part of it.
My journey as an actor started with the signing of the film. I went through rigorous acting classes and diction classes in Urdu with Munira Surati Ma'am in Mumbai and Adil Hussain Sir in Delhi. Also, a special thanks to Tannishtha Chatterjee Ma'am for sharing her experiences as an actor. Onir and his entire team have become family to me. I will always cherish this time spent with them, doing group discussions, script readings and of course the small arguments! Can't wait for the film to go on floors! Just get ready to see me on the big screen... Hope, I make a difference in this vaaaasssst world of cinema"

Been Three years since the release of #IAM . Have tried to give the film the best possible journey despite all odds. My most successful film in terms of recognition and at the same time the film that received the most resistance when it came to recovery. Thanks to all the wonderful Co-Owners and Co-Producer who have stood by us. The film maker in me is telling me "enough is enough" get on to your next. So once again I am pushing myself. looking for a way to make my film... which tell stories of you and me.... but which dont find finance easily. i wonder why is it these stories that attract me so much. Why cant I make my own life easier. I feel a call... I hear my first script calling out to me once again.... from the depths of subconscious, wanting to be explored, revealed, unmasked.... yes wants me to venture out into its darkness. Its been waiting since 2001 when I registered the first draft of the script... Yes too long have i waited. But now I shall step into the NIGHT soon ..... Be a part of my journey by giving me your love....

Sharing the thoughts of my Sister Irene on the #ShaktiMills Rape

"Wind on my face,
My train speeds by
A mill with walls now bare.
Strong walls, even in ruin,
Do you remember her screams?
Do you wonder why men rape?
And how no punishment can ever make it right?"

Found this special invite to the Premiere of my first film #MyBrotherNikhil while Spring cleaning my house. How quickly nine years have passed by . Until that day I was living to be a part of Dream. The day 24.03.2005 made the Dream a reality. I could not have asked for any other life than that of a film maker. A precious film that found me precious people.

Today Mumbai walks THE PRIDE. The first after the supreme court refused to do away with #IPC377 and felicitate DISCRIMINATION once again. Today a long march starts once again for our CONSTITUTIONAL rights. Some Thoughts of mine for a better TOMORROW.
