Harvey Keitel Doing Kranti Kanade’s Against Itself

After giving unremarkable film, Udaan, Sanjay has once again reason to be high because this time he has roped Hollywood star Harvey Keitel to play the lead in his next film.

Sanjay is producing Against Itself, a film by National Award winning writer-director Kranti Kanade, who has managed renowned actor, Harvey Keitel in his flick. The movie will narrate the story of a secular school master struggling against anti-Gandhian forces. Kranti Kanade says,

“I’m delighted to have an actor of Keitel’s experience on board and have him essay this key role in the story.”

Sanjay, whose Udaan got the honour of being screened at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival and also boasts of a long list of 14 international and Indian awards including the Filmfare, says,

“We believe Against Itself has huge international potential. With Harvey in the lead we aim to reach both Indian and global audiences.”

“Our meeting with Harvey was wonderful. He loved the thought and philosophy behind the script. He felt the theme would not only be relevant in India but would have global resonance as well.”
