The London based coming of age drama will be the first in a number of collaborations between director Menhaj Huda and Arena Productions.

Kidulthood director Menhaj Huda has began principal photography on coming of age drama Everywhere & Nowhere, which is shooting in and around London and at Pinewood Studios.

Huda has also written the screenplay for the film, about a young British Asian man who, trapped between the hedonistic multi cultural world of London and his traditional Aisan family upbringing in the suburbs, finds his identity by remicing classic Bollywood soundtracks with contemporary hip-hop.

James Floyd (The Infidel) plays the lead, alongside a supporting cast made up of Adam Deacon, Alyy Khan, Simon Webbe and newcomer Katia Winter.

The film will be the first in a number of planned collaborations between Huda and Sam Tromans’ Arena Productions, who is also executive producing Burning Man, which is shooting in Sydney with Matthew Goode and Rose Byrne.

Nitin Sawhney is on board to produce the soundtrack.

Tromans said: “I’m very excited to be working on such an original film with such a talented group of creatives led by a dynamic, ground-breaking director”
