Indian-born Hollywood producer, actor and entrepreneur Tel Okay. Ganesan says his subsequent film, The Fireflies: Drugs, Debauchery And Dil, will discover the darkish truths of Bollywood, from casting sofa and nepotism to bias, connections and drug tradition. The film is in sync with the occasions that occurred this yr, from Sushant Singh Rajput’s dying to Rhea Chakraborty getting arrested to a number of stars being named for having alleged drug nexus.
“The film is through the eyes of a Bollywood aspirant who leaves home and hearth in Detroit to come back, and gets stuck in the midst of a scandal. Following her is a young cop from the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) investigating the case,” stated Ganesan.
The story revolves across the trials and tribulations of an performing aspirant caught in the online of these with a life filled with fame, fortune and adulation, fraught with hedonism, medication and debauchery.
Drawing reference to Bollywood movies in the previous that had a point out of medicine in the plot, Ganeshan stated: “The same industry that gave hits like ‘Udta Punjab’, ‘Go Goa Gone’, ‘Hare Rama Hare Krishna’, ‘Jaanbaaz’, ‘Shaitaan’, ‘Charas’, ‘Dev.D’, ‘Life In A Metro’, and of course, ‘Fashion’, has admitted to addiction and rehabilitations over decades. Now, things get murkier with the NCB raids discovering newer users. Actors not involved in the case get dragged into it. Will this be the end or the beginning of an end is what The Fireflies: Drugs, Debauchery And Dil is all about.”
“We will sign on a director who will do justice to the subject once we are ready. Currently, we are researching to match further script requirements,” he added.
