CABBIE is the heart warming and feel good story of a group of underdogs trying to turn around their lives in a roller coaster ride of hope for second chances in life. The best bit of news however, is that principal British designer and founder of the Kahn Group of Companies, non-other than Afzal Kahn himself, will make a number of cameo appearances. Set in present-day London, in close-proximity to Kahn Boutiques on The Kings Road in Chelsea and Kensington High Street, the fun and action-packed comedy celebrates the wit of the underdog, the tradition of the iconic black cab and London itself.
The Movie is the brainchild of acclaimed Writer and Director Kat Magrowitz, who was also behind the drama short ‘The Crossing’, which premiered at the Curzon Cinema in Soho in conjunction with the UK premiere of Von Donnersmark's ‘The Lives of Other’.
In addition, her graduation film “The Embrace” backed by German film board, premiered at the Krakow Film festival, whilst German TV station WDR purchased the broadcast rights for ARTE TV in Germany, France and Austria to show the film. That was not all, her Cold War Spy thriller ANNA K was also developed with support from the German film board. Of the collaboration with Kahn Design and pre-production of the British action comedy, Kat Said: “This is a match made in heaven.” “Not only has Kahn Design created some of the coolest cars on the planet - some of which will make an appearance in the movie- and designed the luxurious last-of-line edition of the classic TX4 black cab but its founder Afzal Kahn will also appear in the movie! “When Afzal Kahn was commissioned by the London Taxi Company to create the last of its famous black cabs, I knew immediately that thanks to Afzal’s ultra-exclusive touch, the London Taxi TX4 would be a real collectors’ item. “It’s such a plush ride; if only this cab is available everywhere.” Afzal Kahn believes the film will be a smash hit both at home and abroad: “Project Kahn and Chelsea Truck Company vehicles allow the most discerning of customers to fulfil their wildest dreams. “However, when Kat chose the TX4, I imagined a number of scenes, everything from thrilling car chases and enthralling scenes that will keep us on the edge of our seats throughout the entire movie. “The TX4 is not just a taxi, it is a vehicle that most of us want to own. Viewers will no doubt enjoy the movie along with my cameos, enjoy!”
