Talking about the same, Akarsh Khurana said, “Sumeet and I have worked together in the theatre since 2008. He has directed two plays I produced and acted in plays I have directed. Then he asked me to come on board for Tripling as co-writer and that turned out very well. I gave him the script of High Jack to get an opinion and I was super fortunate that he showed interest in acting in it. He was quite a star then thanks to the immense popularity of his work with TVF. Quite honestly him coming on board was a huge step towards making the film happen.”
Sumeet Vyas also shared,” I have been collaborating with Akarsh for around 10 years in Theater and then web shows. What I like the most about him is his understanding of the script of whatever he is directing and the ease that he gets the best performance out of his actors. We had lots of fun doing High Jack and I am confident that the audience will love this trippy fun film”.
