We’re all aware that Abhay Deol is a stickler for details. So it was no surprise when we heard that he had decided to turn producer with Basra, being directed by Navdeep Singh (of Manorama-Six Feet Under fame) as Singh was having trouble starting it.
Deol is making the said film in association with PVR Pictures and had decided to shoot most of the film in Iraq as the script had warranted.
Here’s the twist in the tale. To rein in expenses and also due to security reasons, the production house has decided to shift shooting to Dubai. Good decision, indeed!
