After his award winning flick 'IQBAL' director Nagesh Kukunoor is back with yet another tour de force 'DOR' starring Ayesha Takia, Gul Panag, Shreyas Talpade, Girish Karnad and Pratiksha Lonkar . The film, produced by Sahara One Motion Pictures, brings forward a masterpiece after the box office hit 'Corporate'. The film is scheduled for release this September.

'Dor' canvases the journey of two women from different worlds and how these two sets of lives come together through a tryst of destiny. 'Dor' makes you ask yourself how far you will go to save the one you love. It's a story about love, loss, friendship, hope and ultimately, redemption.

The film is produced by Sahara One Motion Pictures with Executive Producer Percept Picture Company in association with Sic Productions (Executive Producer-Elahe Hiptoola.)

"We all look forward to Nagesh Kukunoor's films mainly because the subject and content is so out of the ordinary and captivating. One may not have anything to do with it but we all still immediately connect to it. And after 'Iqbal', we wanted to work with this talented director", said Shantonu Aditya, Chief Executive Officer - Sahara One Media and Entertainment Ltd.

Nagesh also believes, "DOR is my most challenging and dramatic film to date - the pristine locales, the spectacular cinematography and the soaring music all add up to make it a larger than life film. However, at its core, as in all of my films is the human element, the simplicity of the basic emotions that bind us all."

'Nagesh Kukunoor's perception on cinema is quite unique and it is a matter of immense pride for Sahara One Motion Pictures to be a part of this venture'. Says Sharang Sharma , Business Head Sahara One Motion Pictures.

Written and Directed by Nagesh Kukunoor, the film's music is by Salim Suleiman with sound from Vipin Bhati. Sudeep Chatterjee once again shows his skills by being the Director of Photography and the art direction is taken care of by Muneesh Sappel. The production designer is Devika Bahudanam, Costumes have been designed by Komal Sahani & M.P. Karthik and the film is edited by Sanjib Datta.

Nagesh brings yet another starkly different and interesting plot to cinema houses this year, and is sure to be as well appreciated by critics as well as audiences all over India. Watch out for this magnum opus coming this September at a theatre near you.
