Line of Descent is an upcoming Indo-Hollywood crime thriller starring Hollywood star Brendan Fraser along with Indian actors Abhay Deol, Ronit Roy and Neeraj Kabi. The film is made under the directorial debut of aspiring director, Rohit Karn Batra and produced by Guy Jon Louthan. Unfortunately, the film didn’t receive a theatrical release in India due to some reasons. Now, as per the latest information, the film will premiere exclusively on ZEE5, one of the fastest-growing OTT platforms in India.
Apart from ZEE5, Line of Descent will mark the opening of the NYC South Asian Film Festival and has also received a theatrical release in the USA by Gravitas Ventures on 13th December.
Sharing about the same, Dev D actor Abhay Deol wrote a post on social media. “ love it when an independent film (yes I’m still making them) of mine gets the promise of a good release! Not only is my film “Line Of Descent” opening the @nycsaff, but it will also get a US theatrical release by Gravitas Ventures on the 13th of December.
This film is too racy and too real for an Indian theatrical, unfortunately, but it will premier exclusively on Zee5 in India, the date is yet to be decided. It is Directed by Rohit Karn Batra and produced by @guylouthan.
Besides the fact that it has some very great actors like Brendan Fraser, Ronit Roy and Neeraj Kabi, I was most excited to see Mr Prem Chopra on screen after such a long time. My grandmother used to say of Mr Chopra, “he’s a villain in reel life but such a gentleman in real life”. And today I am in the same film as him.
This one’s for my granny!!” he wrote on Instagram.
