‘Bhoothnath Returns’ director Nitesh Tiwari’s wife Ashwini Iyer Tiwari is all set to make her debut in filmmaking with Swara Bhaskar starrer ‘Nil Bate Sannata’, which will go on floors later this year.
‘Nil Bata Sannata’, a colloquial expression often used in UP to denote hopelessness, is written by Nitesh and will be shot entirely in Agra.
“For the first time she is making a feature film, which is based in Agra. The film will go on floors in next six months. We have chosen Agra because except the Taj Mahal nothing has been explored about the city, which has its own charm,” Nitesh told PTI.
Without divulging details about the film, Nitesh said the story talks about a mother and daughter relationship and their tug of war.
Ashwini is an advertising professional and has been helping her husband in his ventures. She had also assisted him in ‘Bhootnath Returns’, which is hitting theatres this Friday, and his last release ‘Chillar Party’.
Ashwini also made a nine-minute-long film ‘What’s for Breakfast’.
