After attempting a hard-hitting movie on the life of a prostitute and a postman [Chingaari], Kalpana Lajmi is planning to start a film based on a courtesan next. "It's a period film, set in the 16th century. I was bowled by the interesting plot," Kalpana sounds excited.
What's the film all about? "It's about spiritual love and carnal love. It's about the search for real love," the director of Rudaali, Darmiyaan, Daman and Kyon? adds. Kalpana has already signed a few interesting names for the film in question: Isha Koppikar [as the courtesan], Rahul Dev [as the prince] and Rituparna Sengupta [as the queen]. "I am on the lookout for a good actor to play a sanyasi," she states.
The film isn't titled as yet, but Kalpana is keen to call the film Rang-Raliya. The film is expected to go on floors in October this year. "I am keen to sign a music composer who's proficient in classical and folk music," she adds.
