But Ghai denies that he is remaking Hero. "How can I direct the same film I made three decades ago? Let someone young handle this," the Showman tells me. So what is he making next? "Oh, I am keen to make a lavish, big-budget film this time. It would be a masala film for sure. I've realised that the makers keep experimenting in film after film, perhaps wanting to change with the fast-changing times, but some things - a good commercial film - always remains a favourite, it never goes out of fashion," Ghai states.
The veteran, who has worked with some of the biggest names in the business, is still working on the script of the film. Let's hope Ghai bounces back with renewed vigour this time!
