Actor- Director Santosh Gupta, who has been laying low after his last film Faraar starring Akbar Khan in the title role didn’t do well at the box office, says that he could not work due to going through a trauma in his personal life when he had separated from his wife two years ago, was slowly on his way to recovery when he completed a power packed script based on those bitter experiences. His film titled Pathbrasht will not only compensate for the financial losses of his maiden film Faraar but will also raise issues faced by victims of mockery of the judiciary system in our country.
Santosh had spent his precious time of almost 5 years going through the trauma which he has brought in the scenario of his subject. He is sure that nothing will go wrong this time and he will be able to achieve his goal as the film will ‘connect’ with the masses including the younger generation. “My film is based on incidents in my life and I am ready to reveal my trauma on the screen a la Mahesh Bhatt so that others do not go through the same trauma due to hidden negative elements in disguise of politeness and help the weak minds in the society. I am sure that my film will surely touch the audiences’ hearts and create an awareness and awaken our judiciary system”.
I offer my sympathies to my good old friend Santosh Gupta and hope he will be able to recover from this grave trauma and come to terms with his life after losing his wife and daughter, who he used to dote on and love immensely.
