Vikram Bhatt on his web series Zindabaad: It’s a story of friendship and mutual suffering across borders

विक्रम भट्ट अपनी वेब श्रृंखला ‘जिंदाबाद ‘ ला रहे है , यह सीमाओं में दोस्ती और पारस्परिक पीड़ा की कहानी है


Bhatt, who has a considerable presence on the silver screen with films like Raaz, Hate Story, 1921 and more, feels that he would not have written Zindabaad any differently had it been showcased for the big screens, primarily since Zindabaad does not have any content that might not be suitable for theatre.
Zindabaad features Vikram in the lead role of a burnt out RAW agent named Arjun Vashisht. An out-of-shape alcoholic, Vashisht has left service for almost 15 years. Yet, he decides to take up the mission despite his physical ill-health. “Vashisht has a sharp mind and that’s what he uses. He is extremely complex and emotionally stunted as a human being but at the same time he feels tremendously within. So in that way he is quite difficult and easy to fathom in the same moment,” says Bhatt.
Sanaya Irani and Sana Khan feature along with Bhatt on Zindabaad. However, Irani and Khan play intelligence officers from either sides of the border. While Sanaya essays the role of a RAW analyst, Khan plays Benazir Khan, an ISI agent.
Bhatt elaborates on their roles: “Sanaya plays an astute Indian Muslim who is extremely patriotic and somehow cannot see how ‘religion’ can become the basis of division.” Irani’s character has been mentored by Vashisht and the narrative hints at the couple’s uneasy past. But the factor of mystery is purposely left unsolved.
Sana’s character on the other hand, is named Benazir since her father wanted her to become like the politician. Khan is a person who believes that current Pakistan has been torn apart in three significant sections; The ISI, the terrorists and the democratically elected government. “She is equally patriotic,” says Bhatt.
“The show is a story of friendships. We have been quite honest about geopolitical problems even on this side of the border. If history were to be a reference, at most we end up banning cricket matches and actors from either country. Zindabaad questions what other solutions could be reached at,” says Bhatt.
विक्रम भट्ट को लाइम लाइट से दूर रखना थोड़ा मुश्किल है. लेकिन इस बार उनके सुर्खियों में रहने की वजह थोड़ी अलग है. दरअसल विक्रम जल्द एक वेब शो में बतौर एक्टर डेब्यू करने जा रहे हैं. जिंदाबाद नाम से आने वाला ये शो एक जासूसी थ्रिलर होगा. विक्रम के मुताबिक ये एक रिवेंज यानी बदले की कहानी है.
इस बारे में बात करते हुए उन्होंने बताया, ये शो मैंने लिखा है लेकिन इसे डायरेक्ट सिद्धांत सचदेव ने किया है. इससे पहले हमने गहराइयां और दूसरे कुछ प्रोजेक्ट्स में साथ काम किया था. जिंदाबाद पर मुझसे ज्यादा भरोसा सचदेव को था.
उन्होंने कहा, जिंदाबाद के साथ हमारा मकसद इंटरनेट पर कंटेट देखने के एक्सपीरंस को बदलना है.ये कहानी ओमान से कुवैत फिर वहां से इस्लामाबाद और आखिर में दिल्ली पहुंचती है.
विक्रम  भट्ट इस फिल्म में एक रॉ प्रमुख का किरदार निभा रहे है.उनके चरित्र में दुबई और कराची को दिखाया जायेगा।
विक्रम भट्ट ने जॉनी भाग और खामोशिया जैसे फिल्मे बनाई है.
