Anand Pandit is the classic example of a new age creative producer: Director Rumi Jaffrey
It’s a rarity that films finish their schedules before time. Veteran producer Anand Pandit’s next Chehre holds that distinction and the reason seems to be the perfect chemistry between the producer Anand Pandit and the director Rumi Jaffrey. Infact, Jaffery is thrilled with the kind of support he has got from Pandit – not just hardened business acumen but creative inputs, as well.
Rumi Jaffery says, “For a director, the best companion on the sets is a producer who sees his vision. Anand Bhai has not just understood my vision for Chehre but enhanced it several fold. His presence on the sets was very reassuring. The best thing I like about Anand Bhai is that he is a team player unlike any other producer I have worked with. A producer who believes creativity must come before box office.”
In the course of directing Chehre, Jaffrey discovered that the veteran producer has a great understanding of audience demands and the importance of giving a director complete control over the project.
Anand Pandit has led from the front for some iconic films under his banner Anand Pandit Motion Pictures. He has proved to be one of the most bankable producers of his time with many within the industry calling him ‘the producer with the midas touch’. Chehre is a mystery thriller with Amitabh Bachchan and Emraan Hashmi in key roles. The film is directed by Rumi Jaffery and produced by Anand Pandit Motion Pictures & Saraswati Entertainment Private Limited.
