State-based Cineman Productions Ltd will collaborate with Phantom Films to produce three Gujarati films this year. With this tie-up, Phantom Films is making its foray into regional cinema. This was announced Wednesday here by officials of both the companies.

Phantom Films — jointly owned production house of Vikas Bahl, Anurag Kashyap, Vikramaditya Motwane and Madhu Mantena — will bring its expertise into the marketing and distribution of the Gujarati flicks ensuring they get a pan-India release, said director Vikas Bahl.

Abhishek Jain, director of Gujarati cult hits Kevi Rite Jaish and Bey Yaar, said, “The intention of this tie-up is to give Gujarati films a national-level projection. The experience and the expertise that Phantom Films comes with will surely help us achieve this. By joining hands with them, we have got access to a lot of good talent which in turn will add a lot of value to the film.”

Jain said that the first film that will go on the floors under the partnership will be tentatively made with a budget of Rs 2 crore. While the first film of the tie-up is a thriller drama to be directed by debutant director Mikhil Musale starring Pratik Gandhi, Asif Basra, Kavi Shastri and Kimberley Louisa Mcbeath, it is expected to go for production in a week. The second film will be directed by Abhishek Jain in the second half of the year and the third film is going to be directed by a new talent who will be selected from a 9-day writing and direction workshop that will be held later this year by both the production houses.
