“I was attracted to the wonderful script by Andrei Zolotarev and a talented team led by director Roman Prygunov. And, of course, my film children, with whom we together took on this emotional and touching work. I was fun to feel like a father of many children, and even an oligarch. I can say that, as a rule, they are very interesting and talented people. Money almost never falls from the sky. Being a man with a multi-billion dollar state is certainly one of the types of freedom, but also a great challenge. This test also falls to the share of my hero, ”Vladimir Mashkov shared his impressions of the role.
