June 9: McGuffin is the title of Rohit Arora’s next feature film. His award-winning directorial debut The Pickup Artist (Amazon Prime) made waves in film festivals internationally and was released in Indian Cinemas in 2020. The movie won 2 Remi Awards in America, instantly placing Rohit in the league of Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Ang Lee, the Coen Brothers, Francis Ford Coppola, and David Lynch.
As an actor, Rohit rose to national fame in his teenage years with leading roles in the TV Shows like “Sunn Yaar Chill Maar” and “Kumkum” and will soon be seen in season 2 of Avrodh on Sonyliv. His next directorial venture, McGuffin is a philosophical thriller that took him 4 long years to develop and is currently being shot in New Delhi. This is his second film in the same genre after The Pickup Artist.
When asked more about the project, Rohit Said, “It’s a rare genre for India; several Hollywood movies like Matrix and Inception belong to this genre. I am a deep thinker and my script development process takes years. I do not let commercial viability hinder my creative process.
Pursuit of Cinema for the betterment of Humanity is what I chase and my movies have several hidden messages that you decode once you get past the candy coating. My cast/crew believes McGuffin has the potential to win Oscars for India.”
The movie stars several well-known actors like Nassir Abdullah, Sidharth Bhardwaj, Lokesh Mittal, and some new faces like Rishika Chawla, Pragati Chauhan, Saurav Pradhan, Sagar Sharma, etc.
McGuffin, Produced under the Banner of Roar Picture Company and co-produced by Forget Me Not Productions, is slated to be released in Cinemas in 2023.
