Vashu Bhagnani is back with a vengeance. The enterprising producer, who had been toying with the idea of starting multiple films after F.A.L.T.U. worked at the box-office, is all set to materialize his dream. “I plan to complete at least six films before 2013-end,” Vashu informs me. Wow!
Sanjay Gadhvi, best known for DHOOM and DHOOM 2, will direct Vashu’s immediate project, titled AJAB GAZABB LOVE. Being launched with fanfare on Friday, 13 April, this rom-com stars Arjun Rampal, Arshad Warsi, Kirron Kher, Darshan Jariwala and of course, Jackky Bhagnani and South actress Nidhi Subbaiah. “I have also finalized the release date of this film — 24 October [Dashehra],” Vashu enlightens.
Arshad Warsi, one of the most versatile actors around, will now wear the director’s hat. And if things go as per plans, the audience would witness the MUNNABHAI team of Sanjay Dutt, Arshad Warsi and Boman Irani enacting principal roles in this film. “Arshad is speaking to the actors,” Vashu smiles. What prompted Vashu to entrust the directorial reins to Arshad? “Arshad is a keen observer. I would often tell his business manager that Arshad should try his hand at direction. I am glad Arshad chose me to produce his directorial debut,” Vashu states. The film is titled AKKAD.
Last, but not the least, there’s HIMMATWALA with Sajid Khan and Ajay Devgn together for the first time. Vashu is in the process of starting a few more films.
