Nagesh Kuknoor is all set to release his first mainstream commercial film Bombay To Bangkok (B2B) . The filmmaker who has a different vision for cinema has made outstanding films in Bollywood, but insists that they cannot be called 'non-commercial'. Nagesh says that he has dabbled in different genres and Bombay To Bangkok is yet another different one. You can call it a typical masala film as this film is made with one lip sync song. It's a great genre to explore. He continues that it's important that he enjoys what he is making. So he has never concerned myself with how he is slotted because I work very hard and choose not to make typical kind of films.
B2B talks about a cook who steals money from the local town Bombay and then goes to Bangkok. There he meets to a massage parlor girl and then there's confusion. It was apparently Nagesh's favorite city, Thailand that inspired him for this one.
Nagesh enjoyed shooting in Thailand. Speaking about the experience, he says, "I enjoyed so much that I am planning to shoot in Thailand for my next film as well. Thais are interesting people and they want every instruction to be given very precisely. They don't understand English, so it was very difficult to communicate in the first week, but we got the hang of it and became aces at broken English. We got a very good local director, so that helped as well." In this one too, he has his Iqbal hero - Shreyas Talpade - in the lead role. "Shreyas is a great actor and perfect for the role," explains the director. "I enjoy working with him. It has been an enjoyable process."
