Debutant director Sameer Iqbal Patel says the shooting of his movie “Hotel Beautifool” has been wrapped up with a Christmas celebration, which happens to be a crucial part of the film.
The shoot was completed Tuesday.
“We have wrapped up the shoot of our film and, as a filmmaker, it’s very exciting to finish your film and set it for release. It was our conscious effort to finish the shoot by end of this year so that we can release the film by April 2015,” Patel told IANS.
“We shot for a Christmas celebration (scene) along with the entire cast. It is a crucial part of the film,” he added.
“Hotel Beautifool” features Imam Siddiqui, Johnny Lever, Alisha Farrer, Rohit Khurana, Shanti, Jia Sharma and Brijendra Kala.
Imam is making his acting debut with this film, and the director says he has a great role to play.
“Imam’s role is very important in the film. I must say he has done a good job and played his part really well. He will be seen as an animal lover in this film,” Patel said.
