Stand-up comics Sunee Dhaliwal and Ashley Dhawan also make their feature film debut as does rising young rapper Sid Bhullar.
Filming wrapped in August on writer-director R. Paul Dhillon’s romantic comedy The Fusion Generation (TFG) starring Bollywood veteran Gulshan Grover, who plays pioneer Indo-Canadian-Sikh lumber mogul Sam Sahota.
The film is currently in post-production and already there is huge interest for the film from top Hollywood film sales agents-distributors for the worldwide release of the film.
"We are talking to some big people in LA as how to best market and release the film," says Dhillon, who along with his team of editor-composer Kristopher Gee is busy shaping up the film.
"It's hillarious and Munish Sharma is just fantastic and we are so happy with how the film is coming together – it's truly a blessing working with such a great cast and I think the results are showing as we cut scenes together. Excited to unveil this fun film in 2017," Dhillon added.
Dhillon is looking forward to the finished film, which he hopes to premiere at next year's Toronto International Film Festival.
TFG also stars Little Mosque On The Prairies star Sitara Hewitt and introduces accomplished South Asian stage actor Munish Sharma (The Invisible Hand). TFG began filming in Vancouver and Fraser Valley on July 27 and wrapped production at the end of August.
Dhillon describes TFG as a fun-filled cultural ride that also explores the Punjabi community’s rich history in British Columbia. He is proud of the fact that it features more than a dozen western Canada-based South Asian actors, many of whom have never worked on a feature film.
“Much of the government (Telefilm) funding goes to established Canadian filmmakers and in the case of South Asian, largely to one filmmaker Deepa Mehta who recently received $4 million for the much maligned gangster film Beeba Boys, and there isn’t much left for independent Canadian filmmakers like myself. But as artists it’s important that our cultural stories, especially from my Punjabi community in western Canada, are also told even if it means that you have to raise independent financing,” says The Fusion Generation writer-director-producer Dhillon.
Alongside Bollywood legend Grover, who has acted in over 400 Bollywood and international productions including writer-director Dhillon’s Sweet Amerika, TFG also features award-winning actress Balinder Johal (Beeba Boys, Heaven On Earth) along with rising star rapper Thugpun, who is also making his feature film debut playing a playboy named Bobby. It also includes many versatile Canadian actors like BK Singh Rakhra, Nimet Kanji, Dasundha Kaler, Steve Dhillon, Daniela Carmona, Corinna Rennie, Gelsea Mae, Charles Rahul Singh, Nikki Wallins, Gurcharan Rampuri, Rashi Grewal, Chris Walters, Raj Toora, Robert Leaf, Jagdish Binning and Maritama Carlson.
Stand-up comics Sunee Dhaliwal and Ashley Dhawan also make their feature film debut as does rising young rapper Sid Bhullar.
Writer-director Dhillon is returning to feature film directing with this fun-filled romantic comedy, which he describes as a party film. He has previously written-produced-directed BHANGRALICIOUS, a 13-part music Doc-series and REFLECTIONS – South Asian Stories, consisting of 8 hour long documentaries featuring such luminaries as pioneering BC politician Moe Sihota, Olympian Arjan Bhullar, activist Harsha Walia, Justice Wallace Taru “Wally” Oppal, top cop Kal Dosanjh and Sikh Youth leader Bikramjit Singh Sandher among many others, for national broadcast in Canada.
The Fusion Generation is a film that is also close to Dhillon's heart and he says he’s glad that it’s finally happened now.
“It's about love, partying and joys of being young so what better way to spend the summer reliving it and recreating it,” Dhillon said.
The film is being produced by Dhillon’s MMM Films/MMM Film Finance International, a Vancouver-based company engaged in the production of independent feature films, documentaries and television production.
Dhillon, an award winning journalist-screenwriter-director and producer, has made more than two dozen documentaries and television series for OMNI Television, CTV and CBC.
MMM Films released Dhillon’s debut feature film SWEET AMERIKA, a cross-cultural drama set around the events of 9/11, in Canada and US in 2008-2009, which was co-written, produced and directed by Dhillon
