Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], January 31: The word trailer generally gives us a sense that it will be a glimpse from a film or a web series. But a trailer of a book, one that features the authors, is quite a novel idea. Director Divyansh Pandit, the founder of the production company Wild Buffaloes Entertainment, ideated one such novel trailer for the announcement of the biography on Assistant Commissioner of GST and Mumbai Customs, Deepak Pandit, known as White Singham these days.
When the authors, Sheetal Bhan and Aamir Bengali, initiated this book, they didn’t have the slightest clue that they would be featuring in a trailer of the same. The authors were nervous as well as excited for this new experience. None of them had had an experience of acting in front of the camera before; before on talking to them, they expressed that the director was a boon when it came to helping them shrug off the nervousness.
The trailer features a character who plays young Deepak Pandit and essays his life journey that displays a dynamic array of moments. From cricket to his adventures with the underworld to his incorruptible attitude to his love story, the trailer encompasses it all.
Having been released on the YouTube channel of Wild Buffaloes Entertainment, the trailer has received quite a response over the last 2 weeks.
“Deepak Pandit’s life history has been no less than a Bollywood film”, said both the authors. When asked about one element that made Deepak Pandit an impacting personality, Aamir said, “I have been in awe with his facial communication, which can convey the most intense massage with the slightest of expression. His eyes can impart a sense of security to his loved ones, and the same eyes can tear apart someone with ill intentions.” Sheetal, on the other hand has been in love with her aunt, Arushi Pandit, who she mentioned, has been her guardian angel and post her demise, Sheetal found this book as a means to relive and tell the story of not only her spiritual and magnificent aunt but also her inspiring and combative uncle, Deepak Pandit.
The trailer of the book includes quotes in praise of Deepak Pandit, by legendary Indian cricketers, like Chetan Sharma, Praveen Amre, Maninder Singh and many more, along with a couple of senior-most officials of the CBIC, a department under the Ministry of Finance.
“Deepak is a highly resourceful officer with proper knowledge of law and procedure. It is a pleasure to work with an officer like him”
