Panaji, June 30 (UNI) Coming together of top film personalities from South Asian countries on one platform in Goa has resulted in conceptualising a collective film which weaves a ''unique love story''.

''The script is in advanced stage for the film which will be a collective venture. It would be directed by eight directors belonging to the South Asian countries under the banner of the South Asia Foundation (SAF),'' the foundation's secretary general Rahul Barua announced here today.

The film producers, directors and actors had been in this Goan capital to participate in the 4-day South Asian Film Festival concluded here today.

Goa was declared the permanent venue for the festival from this year even as IFFI had been permanent venue since the year 2004.

Mr Barua claimed that budget was no constraint for the film which will be shot in all the eight countries. It will feature actors from all these countries.

He also disclosed that the SAF had planned to document another film on the Maoists of Nepal who brought about a peaceful revolution by dethroning the Royal Regime and establishing a multi-party government for the first time in the Himalayan Kingdom.

There was tremendous response from the Maoists themselves, leave alone other top coummunist leaders across the world, he said.

While Bangladesh had cleared the proposal to host SAFF this year, it was pending with the Nepal which was likely to accept the proposal soon, he added.
