The rags-to-riches story of Brash Young Turks is mirrored in the behind-the-scenes making of the film. “We didn’t have a huge budget, but when you have a huge vision, you have to hustle. Producers have seen the film and valued the final production at £1 million, which is insane. We filmed at Notting Hill Carnival, at Heron Tower, we had Ferraris in the film.” Naeem Mahmood (director) tells his stories of hustling with life-affirming gusto. “To get permission to film at Sushi Samba, I got dressed up—because you have to be dressed a certain way to even get in—and I turned up and asked to speak to the manager, and got him onside. Face-to-face is key to hustling. It's all about showing your energy.”
