Onir on Sanjay Suri: He is my best friend, my family

Ace filmmaker Onir and Sanjay Suri are jointly producing Raveena Tandon’s ‘Shab‘. Their partnership has been the strongest and ever since Onir’s ‘My Brother Nikhil’, Sanjay has been like the backbone to the director. Now that their film ‘Shab’ is all set to release on July 14, here we have Onir shedding some light on his camaraderie with Sanjay.

Onir states, “He (Sanjay Suri) is my best friend, my family. He is one person who inspired me, pushed me to get into films believing that I could become a director, like I always wanted to. But someone who made it possible. When other actors saw the kind of trust he had in me, it was easier for everyone to believe in me. Ever since ‘My Brother Nikhil’, we have been producing films together and I think there are two things that keep us together- our love for similar kind of cinema and as people we value people. We are driven by stories and not money. I think that’s what binds us together.”

‘Shab’ also stars Ashish Bisht and Arpita Chatterjee in lead roles. (Also Read: Here’s what went into the making of the intriguing poster of Onir’s ‘Shab’)
