Kiran Rao launches own production company; 'Ship of Theseus' to be first release

Dhobi Ghat director Kiran Rao is to launch her own production house to promote independent films.
 

The filmmaker has long been associated with her husband Aamir Khan's Aamir Khan Productions (AKP) which also has a history of backing independent films, including 'Dhobi Ghat' and 'Delhi Belly'.
 

A friend of Rao's has now revealed to The Hindustan Times that the director is keen to branch out on her own.
 

“She has an eclectic taste in films and is an ardent supporter of good cinema. Now, she wants to take her passion a step forward by supporting new talent and presenting films with quality content.  This banner will not be associated with AKP, but in the future, if they offer her a project to direct, Kiran will be open to doing it. She has complete support from Aamir in this new venture.”
 

The company's first project will be 'Ship of Theseus' the first full length feature by screenwriter Anand Gandhi.
 

The film, which premiered at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival, explores issues of identity and faith and has won numerous festival prizes around the world but is yet to find a distributor in India.
 

A source told the HT: “When called for a casual screening of the film, she found it to be stunning and thought that such films need to be promoted and nurtured. Under her new banner, she will present films that deserve a wider platform for release.”
 

The source adds, “Kiran will present SOT this July. She is very proud of the new venture and always likes to be part of the creative process.”
