Director ajay chandok,ameesha patel,casanova is a happy man. Even though he has long forgotten his experience on Nehlle Pe Dehlla (Sanjay Dutt, Saif Ali Khan, Bipasha Basu) which got horribly delayed and saw a pathetic release last year (only to bomb miserably at the box office), he has completed his comedy outing Khalbali Hai Khalbali. Not just that, in the meanwhile he has also got the shooting of Chatur Singh Two Star kick started which yet again stars Sanjay Dutt in the lead title role.
"I hope there would be good times from here on", beams Chandok who has two more films (Team - The Force, Kisse Pyaar Karoon) stuck in the cans, "I could have continued to mourn about my films not being released or moved on and plan further projects. Of course I chose the latter and result is there to be seen with two new films in the pipeline. Khalbali Hai Khalbali is complete and has shaped up quite well. On the other hand, Chatur Singh Two Star, a project I am quite confident about, is already on floors. It couldn't have been better."
This Sanjay Dutt-Amisha Patel film has already seen its first schedule wrapped up in quick time this month. "That's right", informs Chandok who has assisted David Dhawan for most part of his career, "We began shooting early June and are now looking at kick starting our next schedule. In the months of July and August we would be going to Cape town to shoot the film."
Chatur Singh Two Star comes with a horde of character actors, as has been the hallmark of Chandok's films like Nehlle Pe Dehlla and Khalbali Hai Khalbali. Apart from Sanju baba and Amisha Patel, the film also stars Anupam Kher, Gulshan Grover, Satish Kaushik, Suresh Menon, Murli Sharma and Vishwajeet Pradhan amongst others.
Chatur Singh Two Star has music by Sajid-Wajid. A comic caper that promises to showcase the funny side of Sanjay Dutt, the film was announced last Eid and is aiming for an early 2009 release.
