Directorial debut of Amin Hajee, the psychological thriller, went on floors last week.
After his stint as an actor and screenplay writer, Amin Hajee finally dons the director’s hat with Koi Jaane Naa. The psychological thriller, produced by Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series, went on floors last weekend and will continue in Panchgani.
Talking about his directorial debut, Amin says, “Ever since I can remember I have always wanted to direct my own film, right from when I assisted Mazhar Khan on Gang in 1988, which was a life changing experience. But then I began a journey of dancing and acting, a journey I loved, but the best thing that happened to me was when I got signed for Swades by Ashutosh Gowarikar and Aamir Khan Productions. Aamir and Ashutosh have been instrumental throughout my journey in films, in pushing me to achieve much more than I thought possible, their belief in me has driven me forward. After seeing Swades the creative satisfaction I felt was immense. I realised that directing a movie you have written and envisaged is the Highest of Highs you can feel in the world of films. So I continued to write and joined Vikram Bhatt in writing horror and thrillers which I enjoyed immensely and learned so much about script writing. After the success of Haunted and 1920 Evil Returns I decided to take a break and write my own script. This is when Koi Jaane Naa happened.”
