Actor-producer Sohum Shah, who is the founder of Recyclewala Films, is excited about his latest initiative – The Recyclewala Story Search 2015, which will travel to 110 towns all over India in search of a script.
"What we are looking for is magic. The magic of a great story. And, once we find that we plan to work with the writer(s) to develop it into a script and then make it into a film. At Recyclewala, all our films came to us as ideas and then went through a process of evolving into film scripts," Sohum said in a statment.
Sohum's production house aims to bring diverse and original voices from India to the big screen, and hence they are planning to make the Story Search an annual feature.
"The Recyclewala Story Search is very close to my heart because I am also an outsider, and I understand just how tough it can be to find your way around here," Sohum added.
"We're looking to identify and develop more such original and entertaining content," he said.
The script hunt for the production house will go on for a month starting from 14 October. The winner will be announced on 25 November, and the winning script will be awarded with a signing amount of Rs 5 lakh.
