Mumbai-based Independent Movies has finalised the financing on Film Bazaar project Sunrise (Arunoday), following a deal with India’s Infinitum Productions to increase its funding for the film.

Independent’s Partho Sen-Gupta and Rakesh Mehra will co-produce with Infinitum’s Shrihari Sathe and Marc Irmer of France’s Dolce Vita Films. The NFDC will also co-finance and co-produce.

Sen-Gupta will direct the psychological thriller from March 2013, with Adil Hussain and Tannishtha Chatterjee heading the cast.

Sunrise previously had Dutch and German partners, but as it has now completed financing, the film will be set up as an Indo-French co-production.
