For the first time, ace director Anurag Kashyap turns script doctor for his Phantom collegue Vikas Bahl

What does a director do when he needs to bounce-off some ideas for his film? Well, he gets in touch with another director. That’s what Vikas Bahl did when he wanted third-eye perspective for his script. Bahl roped in his Phantom Company colleague Anurag Kashyap as his script doctor.

Says a source, “A director always finds it very difficult to bounce off ideas and discuss his script with someone else. At the same time, it is very necessary to do so. Hence Phantom has now started this trend which is widely followed internationally. Phantom which is the first of its kind is an absolutely no ego zone as to think of it directors which are in a way competing with each other otherwise with their films are now all working together as one entity.”

Internationally once the script is complete, it always goes to the script doctor for a better perspective and to make the script better. Since Phantom is the first all directors’ company of India, they have adopted this unique approach.
