Romance Movie 'The End' 
BOLLYWOOD actress AMNEEK signs KATOHORA's psychological romance 'THE END"

NEW YORK, June 23, 2005
"THE END"... when reel ends and real life begins!

Manan Katohora is back with "The End", a semi-autobiographical film that explores the relationship between 2 filmmakers Aman and Sonya, and their analysis of "the end" of two classic movies -  'CASABLANCA' and 'HUM DIL DE CHUKE SANAM'. Fresh after the successful worldwide release of ARYA, Manan looks onto an honest reflection of relationships in the 25th century with 'The End'. A subject very close to the filmmaker himself, which he penned a month after he called off his wedding.

This is Manan's third film as director, fourth as actor/writer, and second as producer and like all Manan's films, an impressive cast makes up the characters. The protagonist is a very bold strong female character. In "The End", the protagonist Sonya will be played by Amneek Sandhu, who is no stranger to the big screen,  she has been in crossover Indian-American films (Just Indian, Young Adventures of Van Hansling) and Bollywood movies (Kehta Hai Dil Baar Baar with Jimmy Shergill and Paresh Rawal, Des Hoyaa Pardes with Juhi Chawla). In addition, she will soon be seen in SHAADI KARKE PHAS GAYA YAAR starring SALMAN KHAN and Shilpa Shetty, releasing end of Summer 2005.
 
Dhaval Mehta is co-directing and co-producing the movie with Manan. His previous work includes 2 short films, "Transit" and "Catharsis", both of which he has written and directed. Also, the talented director has a Music Video to his credit called "The Last Picture Show". To view the trailer for Transit or to get more information on Dhaval, visit www.truepicturesinc.com.

Talented Shetal Shah joins the cast as Maya. This is Shetal Shah's second film with Manan. Earlier this month, Shetal won the best actress award at first ever SOUTH ASIAN MEDIA AWARDS event, for Arya.  This is also first time well known Chinese-American actress Jing www.jing.tv will be working with Manan, playing the 2nd lead Sue.
