‘Immortals’ director Tarsem Singh shoots his first Indian feature


Indian-origin Hollywood director Tarsem Singh, who is known for films such as ‘The Cell’ (Jennifer Lopez), ‘The Fall’ (Lee Pace), ‘Immortals’ (Henry Cavill, Frieda Pinto) and ‘Self/Less’ (Ryan Reynolds, Ben Kingsley), recently shot his first Indian feature film titled ‘Dear Jassi’.

Based on a true story, the movie has been shot by the celebrated Hollywood cinematographer Brendan Galvin and has been scripted by Amit Rai (writer and director of ‘Oh My God 2’).

The subject of ‘Dear Jassi’ has always been close to Tarsem. “It’s my passion project,” he said. “And I believe this is the right time for the world to see it. Such a strong story needs to be told.”

The film has been shot across Punjab over a span of 50 days and the last schedule of 2 weeks will be shot in Canada very soon. The film’s crew consists of a mix of top Indian and international names with the post-production happening in Montreal, Canada.

Other than feature films, Tarsem is globally renowned for his award-winning ad films and music videos featuring the world’s topmost brands and artistes like Brad Pitt, Lady Gaga, Deep Forest, R.E.M and Enrique Iglesias.

The film is produced by T-Series, Wakaoo Films, Creative Strokes Group and Tarsem Singh. Bhushan Kumar of T-Series is immensely happy with the experience. “This is our first foray into mainstream international cinema and we are thrilled with the experience.” It will see a worldwide release in mid-2023.
