Madhavan again in Nishikants next

Marathi director Nishikant Kamath has taken a strange and challenging route to success. After making the enormously acclaimed Dombivili Fast in Marathi with Sandeep Kulkarni in the lead, Kamath took the film to Tamil cinema and has just completed the film in Tamil with Madhavan in the lead.

"Now I think I'm finally coming home," Laughs Kamath. On 18 May he starts his first Hindi film entitled Mumbai Meri Jaan. The film to be produced by UTV has an enormously interesting ensemble cast, quite like UTV's current release Metro where actors are used as actor and not stars.

Says Kamath, "That's exactly why I've chosen the cast that I have. Mumbai Meri Jaan will star Irrfan Khan, K.K Menon, Paresh Rawail, Soha Ali Khan and of course Madhavan. I don't think I can make a film without Madhavan," laughs Kamath.

Describing the film as a long lingering look at Mumbai, Kamath is fully into pre-production work now. "My Hindi project came together all of a sudden. When I made Dombivili Fast in Marathi I never thought I'd be making it in Tamil. And now after making a film in a language that I don't understand I'm going into an area that will take my cinema across regional borders. Strange are the ways of destiny!"
