Shirish Kunder has been maintaining a low profile ever since Jaan-E-Mann released last Diwali. There's tremendous speculation vis-A-vis his next film [with SRK?]... what has fuelled the rumors is Shirish's non-committal stance. But the normally reticent director has decided to set the record straight.
The talented director has floated his production house - Shirish Kunder Film Company - and has announced two projects in the first round. "The first project will be helmed by me, the second by an established director. I can't reveal the name right now since we need to complete the formalities," Shirish informs me.
The two projects, both multi-crore ventures, will be co-produced by a leading corporate house. "The deal is finalized, but it has to be put on paper," Shirish enlightens. Shirish isn't ready to divulge the star cast of his film, but on prodding, does disclose details. "Mine will be a 2-hero project. One of the heroes has been finalized, the second is in the process of finalization," he adds.
Meanwhile, Shirish isn't ready to speak about the other film that's written about by the media. "I am not at liberty to speak about that film," he says. Ask him if wife Farah Khan will direct a film for his production company and he replies instantly, "We've several interesting projects lined up. It's a bit premature to talk about it," he answers.
