Producer and Director Vidhu Vinod Chopra is producing his next film titled 12th Fail. Vikrant Massey will be headlining the film.
Talking about the film, Chopra says, "If an honest person is in a position of power, the world can truly change. I have seen that with countless IAS and IPS officers I have come across in the process of writing this film. 12th Fail is a tribute to all of them. If this film can inspire even 10 more officers to strive for honesty, 10 more students to strive for excellence I will believe I have succeeded."
He shares, "It's the tragedy of our times that honesty and sincerity are a rarity. This film is a dedication to all the students who dream, to all the honest officers who are the backbone of our country and constitution. Working with VVC is a dream-come-true and a huge challenge since he's such a thorough director."
Chopra is best known for films like Parinda (1989), 1942: A Love Story (1994), Mission Kashmir (2000) and several others. The director-producer has wrapped the first schedule of 12th Fail in Chambal, Agra, and is currently filming the second schedule in Delhi. The film is scheduled to release in 2023.
