Q. Amar, how has 2018 been for you?
Honestly so far 2018 has been a crazy journey for me, I have done lots of travelling , filmed a new movie called the Seven which should be released next year and also released my latest flick called Dead Ringer which came out last week. Exciting times and I couldn’t be happier.
Q. What sort of feedback have you had from Dead Ringer film?
When I’m making a movie I can always hope for the best, we may get some negative and positive reviews and the film may not be everyone’s cup of tea but so far the response to Dead Ringer has been amazing… everyone loved it and I’m so proud of what we have achieved on such a low budget independent film. I just hope more and more great reviews come through.
Q. What is next on your agenda now?
I guess just to keep making more and more films now. I’ve found my home in production and acting so will continue to make my own movies and hopefully keep making light hearted entertainment for people to watch in cinemas and their homes. I would also love to start making a tv series which we are in speaks about with a tv network so fingers crossed it all works out.
Q. You seem to achieve star-studded productions, how do you get these stars on your projects?
My motto in life is if you don’t ask you don’t get and now I’m onto my 7th production, I guess getting actors and stars on these are much easier than when I started. I guess if you can make a good product and get it out there people will want to work with me and be involved.
Luckily being in the industry over 17 years I have made some amazing colleagues who know a friend who wants to act so again I ask and I get and hopefully get more and more stars attached to each production.
Q. Amar, where do you see yourself in 5 years time?
I should say the cliche answer of hopefully get married and have some little Amars running around haha but aside from that I guess make more productions abroad and get some international talent involved To some sort of degree. My latest movie The Seven I am co producing the film with Dean Cain (superman) and what a privilege it has been. So i guess just keep doing what I love and making bigger and better productions.
