Kundalini sets ‘Opium’

Singh to helm English-lingo pic

NEW DELHI — Los Angeles-based Kundalini Pictures will begin shooting the $3.5 million “Opium Royale” in India’s Rajasthan desert on Jan. 15.

The English-lingo film is set on the eve of India’s independence from British colonial rule in 1947 and is about Maharaja Hamir Singh who refuses to join the Indian Union.

Pic will be helmed by Digvijay Singh.

Entera Entertainment, specializing in financing and distributing English and multi-lingual productions in Europe, has bought distribution rights for “Opium Royale” for Europe and the U.S.

Kundalini was set up in 2000 by Indian-born filmmaker Dileep Singh Rathore. “Our aim is to produce a diverse slate of films internationally under $15 million,” he said. He currently has five films in development.
