In this dynamic environment, conceptualizing the script of the film or a show seems easy. But there goes a lot behind making a film. While working on any project, every department functions closely with one another. Among other teams, the production team works relentlessly behind the success of any film. When we talk about line producers, Shaukat Shaikh is the name that comes to our mind. He is the brainchild behind Fisherman Films Line Production Company.

In an extraordinary career, Shaukat Shaikh’s company has been associated with many big Hindi films and South films.
With an experience of almost 17 years, the line producer has been the first choice of some of the biggest production houses. In other words, many media and production companies rely on Shaukat Shaikh when it comes to finalizing the recce of any film. The line producer has got various lavish homes in beautiful locations including Lonavala and Pune in Maharashtra.

After working on various big-budget films, Shaukat Shaikh is now all set to venture into the digital space. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the plan to foray into the OTT space got postponed. “My team and I have always been keen to come up with a web show. Hopefully, Fisherman Films Line Production Company will work on a web series in the coming year”, stated Mr. Shaukat. That sounds pretty interesting that his company is all set to produce a web series in the coming time. We can’t wait to see Shaukat Shaikh don a producer’s hat for a web series. Our best wishes are with him, and may he achieve immense success in the OTT space as well.
