ZEE5 ropes in Vijay Lalwani for its upcoming original film ‘The Final Call’
MUMBAI: Video on demand (VoD) platform ZEE5 has roped in well-known director Vijay Lalwani for its upcoming original film ‘The Final Call’. Vijay Lalwani has taken the role of writing and directing the series.
‘The Final Call’ is based on Priya Kumar’s book ‘I Will Go With You’ and premieres on 22nd February. The show also marks the digital debut of Arjun Rampal and Javed Jaffrey who are joined by talented actors Neeraj Kabi, Sakshi Tanwar and others.
About his association with ZEE5, writing & directing The Final Call, Vijay Lalwani said, “I realised early on when I met ZEE5 that they had a vision for something amazing. They had an eye for good content and they backed it up with scale, budget and talented technicians to do it the right way. They were encouraging and supportive of the creative process. I was also really inspired by the book and its message. The content is a mix of thrill and philosophy, an unexplored territory and that excites me.”
He further added, “The crew has been the pillar of the show. It’s been a great privilege working with them. They went through extreme hardships to get the right kind of footage and didn’t leave any stone unturned to achieve what was required. It is one thing to have the talent it’s quite another to have the right attitude and I was lucky enough to work with a crew that had both. It is a great rush doing this project and being a part of something with meaning.”
