Besides the high concept content that attracted Nasseruddin every single character in the film is real as Ratna Pathak Shah, Amit Sial, Randeep Hooda, Benjamin Gilani, Mahabanoo Mody-Kotwal, Shilpa Shukla have substantially contributed in the excellence of its execution, under the direction and vision of debutante Veena Bakshi.
COFFIN MAKER is a life changing film. It represents cinema that inspires! Set against the authentic and seductive spirit of a Goan Village, Coffin Maker is a poignant tale about a reluctant Coffin Maker who learns about life from a very unusual and mysterious source.
Producer Bharat & Ambika Vijan of Shree Narayan Studios are ecstatic since just a few week back COFFIN MAKER was selected to premiere at the prestigious RIVER TO RIVER FLORENCE festival, as well as in Rome.
Says a visibly excited Bharat “I am truly overjoyed, since it has been a debut film for my studio, Shree Narayan Studios. And the content and the theme of the film are carrying it forward. Every member of the star cast are professional actors in their own right and have given their best performance for this film. Nassersaab is a true genius, and his acting prowess has been the force behind this wonderful film. My wife Ambika and I feel truly justified in backing this high concept content driven entertaining film. It has got a universal appeal, and though the setting is a reflection of Goa lifestyle, it is a reflection of life itself”
