The dialogues of the film are written by renowned Bollywood writer Harish Kotian. Kuwait's popular filmmaker and International award winner T-Bush will direct the film. The screenplay will be by T-Bush and Harish Kotian. Arif Kazi based in Kuwait is the Associate Director of the film.
The much in demand Cinematographer Basheer Ali is one of the high-status signs for the film. Most people confuse cinematography with photography and look at the good-looking visuals only. In a film, the cinematographer is responsible for the technical aspects of the images (lighting, lens choices, composition, exposure, filtration, film selection), but works closely with the director to ensure that the artistic aesthetics are supporting the director's vision of the story being told. Cinematographers are the heads of the camera, grip and lighting crew on a set, and for this reason they are often called as directors of photography. Basheer belongs to the school which believes in the kind of cinematography that tells a story.
The much in demand Basheer has been amazing with his visuals in several Hindi blockbusters such as 'Refugee', 'Border', etc. He was the first to unearth the talents of Bollywood superstars Abhishek Bachchan and Kareena Kapoor in their debut film 'Refugee'.
The local artistes for 'Kahin Na Kahin' will be finalized soon.
