I was an extra on Rensil D’Silva’s new debute feature for Dharma Productions. It was a cold and long day shoot on Rensil D’Silva’s film as of yet still Untitled. It stars Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Vivek Oberoi. I can’t say much about the plot only that it’s a thriller.

The call was at 9am and we wrapped up at 4:30. The shot was on Arch Street in Philadelphia, PA between 4th and 6th streets. It had a lot of FBI cars running down the street. We also shot at different angle with a giant crane. The weather was crazy cold at 15 Fahrenheit and very windy.

Rensil D’Silva is best known for hisĀ  startling historically-challenged screenplay of Rang De Basant. Some of the other films that are in production at Dharma Productions currently are Wake Up Sid, Koochie Koochie Hota Hain and My Name is Khan.

During a break, I had a fortunate chance to speak with Rensil for a bit and I must say he is the nicest director I’ve worked with to date.

The expected release date is Fall 2009.
