He started off with Once Upon A Time In Amritsar and got himself the tag of being the youngest producer of Punjabi industry. Later we saw Mohit Banwait working on a short film named Palli and now suddenly an announcement comes from his end that a new film titled 'Parahuna' is soon to hit the floor and will be directed by him.
At such an age do we call this youngster a multi-faceted personality or a confused one?
My upcoming project is “Parahuna". I am the director and the producer of the movie. We are working on the pre-production for now and soon would reveal the star cast. The shoot shall begin next year by January in the rural areas of Punjab. The movie is a family entertainer, comedy movie, which also has a love story. It is a period movie which will take you back to the 90’s. The brother in law of the family is often called the Purahuna and a I can say at this point of time is that after watching this movie, there are chances that Parahune russ jaan gey!
My first movie released couple of years back and since then I have been studying the industry deeply. I have been watching the kind of movies that work at the box office, the kind of movies that make audiences inquisitive. I saw a pattern and I applied that pattern to my upcoming movie too but with a novel story in it . My story and the way I portray the yester-years in the rural backdrop is different from what everyone has seen before. I am very optimistic that the audience will like the story that I intend to show them and off course the way I show it to them.
I always wanted to be a director and for that I have been taking help from my friend Praveen who would also help me in this movie. With Once Upon A Time In Amrtisar I had set a benchmark of being the youngest producer and also learnt the technicalities of being one. I tried my hands on direction with my short movie Palli, in which I also wrote the script and the screenplay. Now I thought that it was the best time to enter the industry as a director. I am very passionate about direction and this passion shall prevail till the time I am in the industry .
Oh! I have never thought about being one. I am currently concentrating on direction and want to learn more and more about it. If god is kind then I'd also think about acting in a movie.
Mohit also promised that the lead star cast of the movie comprises of A listers of Punjabi cinema. Let's hope this fun filled family entertainer proves rewarding for this young director.
