"'Ruslaan' is not just a film for me; it's about shifting gears and experimenting. It's about breaking the mould, and I hope it inspires others to push their boundaries, just as I have pushed mine, and emerge stronger, fiercer, and ever more passionate about their work," the actor said in a statement.
"As a director, my canvas is the screen, and every frame is a stroke of storytelling. I paint emotions, dreams, and realities, weaving them into a tapestry of cinematic magic. With each project, I aim to ignite the audience's imagination and stir their souls, creating an indelible connection that transcends the boundaries of the screen," said Butani.
Radhamohan said the alchemy of art and commerce fuels the heartbeat of the entertainment industry.
"As a producer, my role is to breathe life into stories, to provide the canvas upon which creativity flourishes, and to bring dreams to fruition. I'm not just funding projects; I'm investing in the dreams and visions of talented individuals who have the power to change the world one frame at a time," the producer added.
