Jaaved Jaaferi Turned Producer

The Dancer, Comedian, Actor and Director has now turned to Producer, he has financed a documentary which censor board banned and it didnt come to big screen, so he decided to turn to a producer now,

He said his debut production will neither be a comedy nor a film on dance,

I intend to produce soon but right now I can’t talk about it in detail since it’s in the initial stages. All I can say that my first film will be a serious film and I won’t direct it,

I have consciously decided to stay away from comedy, at least in the first film, because I want to explore more genres. I don’t want to get stuck with just one thing,

I co-produced and funded ‘Inshallah, Football’, which was banned by the censor board. They thought it was controversial because it was connected to the Kashmir issue. Also, they were not happy about certain scenes and things in the documentary,

The topic was wonderful. It featured an Argentinian-Brazilian husband-wife, based in srinagar, who teach football to a group of Kashmiri kids. They have been there for four years with their daughters, who go to a Kashmiti school, and they are trainingthese Kashmiri childrean,

The story revolves around the captain of the football team, who is not getting a passport because his father is an ex-militant,

This film had a documentary feel to it, so we shot it like that. I may make it into a full-fledged film in the fature,

Jaaved, has produced and Judge a popular dance reality show boogie woogie for more than a decade,

He said,

I think i will be good at that Also, I feel it will be well because a lot of people have told me that if I’ll make a film on dance people will look forward to it, so that makes commercial sense as well.
