Akbar Khan's Taj Mahal didn't work wonders, either in India or in Pakistan. However the filmmaker is all set to work on his next international film Chenghiz Khan. Calling it a first Indian historical film for international audience, Akbar Khan informed that the film will be in English and for an all international audience.
Speaking about its story line he said, "This is a premature stage of the script. We are still in the scripting stage. And as I said this film will be for international audience, we are looking out for an all international star cast. Similarly, I am planning to shoot this film in Mongolia, Peshawar, China and Afghanistan."
According to him, he relates to historical genre that compels him to make historical films. "It gives me a creative satisfaction and that's the only reason I involve in historical projects. But as a filmmaker I would like to make modern films too. I'll make some modern films but all my attention now is on Chenghiz Khan."
When quizzed what interests him to make a film on Chenghiz Khan, Khan replied, "Chenghiz Khan is a universal cult figure. He was from Mongolia and was recorded seriously and secretly in Mongolian history. This film will reveal Chenghiz Khan's life as a great warrior and will also talk about his love life. I am planning to start this at the end of the year and it will release sometime in next year."
