Sikhya boards Blood, Side Hero
Guneet Monga’s Sikhya Entertainment is producing Amit Kumar’s Give Me Blood and Vasan Bala’s Side Hero.
Sikhya produced Bala’s Peddlers, which premiered at Cannes Critics Weeks last year, and was also a co-producer on Kumar’s last film Monsoon Shootout, which premiered in official selection at Cannes 2013.
“Side Hero is a slice-of-life comedy which is in the last stages of discussion on finance and cast. We are locking the script of Give Me Blood and will begin to look for international co-producers soon,” said Monga.
Give Me Blood, about two Indian soldiers serving in the British Indian army during World War II, was selected for Film Bazaar’s Co-production Market last year.
