If reports from an imaginative section of the media are to be believed, Sanjay Bhansali has already firmed in on his next project. And it's called; hold your breath, Hamari Jaan Ho Tum.
Before we moved ahead with this mushy mythical yarn, let's rewind quickly to the exquisite soundtrack of Saawariya where one of the most melodious tracks has the cutest love lyrics that go, 'Thode badmaash ho tum thode nadaan ho tum / haan magar yeh sach hai hamari jaan ho tum".
Indeed Hamari Jaan Ho Tum was an idea that the moviemaking magician was toying with after the success of Black. It was a story about young love in which Sanjay wanted to cast Udit Narayan's son and Mahesh Bhatt-Soni Razdan's daughter.
So is that going to be his next project? Laughs the beleaguered director, "Right now I"m too consumed by the release of Saawariya to even think about what I'll do next. My music composer Monty Sharma and I are busy putting together the background score. Do you know, Monty is the first composer I've worked with who writes music? He knows the musical notations and he puts every note of a tune down on paper before recording them. Such precision in musicianship I"ve never encountered before. I can't think beyond Monty and his music right now."
As for Hamari Jaan Ho Tum, Sanjay has no plans of making that in the immediate future.
