Actor Amit Singh Thakur who earlier held the position of EVP – Promos and Line Production at Shashi Sumeet Productions has added yet another feather in his cap!!
He has started a company of his own, named AST Entertainment and Hospitality which will deal with Promo making and line production.
The blessing for Amit Singh Thakur is that AST Entertainment’s first project for line production happened to be for the legend Amitabh Bachchan in Sony TV’s Kaun Banega Crorepati. His team shot for a promo of KBC on 14 August.
Says Amit Singh Thakur, “I wanted to start something on my own long back. Since I have handled promos for Shashi Sumeet, I decided to venture into line production. This is a small beginning.”
Amit Singh Thakur wants to concentrate on promo making initially. But he has bigger aspirations of venturing into web space later on.
On shooting with Big B for his first project, Amit states, “It is like ‘sone pe suhaaga’. I could not have asked for more; working with such a big legend and such a big show has been a blessing. I had to wait for nine months to see this day. But getting the procedures to happen took time. After shooting with Mr. Bachchan, I can say that all the wait is justified. It was great to be meeting Mr. Bachchan after seven years; we have earlier worked in films.”
“I will like to thank Producer Sumeet Mittal as I would not have got into this line of Promo Making if he had not asked me to handle it for his production house. I would not have started my Company if he had not pushed me into it,” he adds.
Amit Singh Thakur is looking at other GECs in addition to Sony TV for future projects as Line Producer.
Way to go!! Wish you and your company all the success!!
