For Bhushan Kumar, this project is the mogul's next big outing after Salman Khan's Ready. Directed by Milan Luthria, the film will be a character-driven story and an interesting mix of comedy, action, drama and romance creating larger-than-life cinema for movie lovers!
Bhushan Kumar says, "After Ready, my next film will be directed by Milan Luthria. As Ready did 100 crore-plus business, we will continue to dabble in film production in a big way. He adds, "Milan's film for us is a family entertainer. We are very happy to have him on board. We wanted someone who could make people laugh and Saif is perfect. It's a complete masala film! We should start filming in 2013."
Milan Luthria, who is riding high after two back to back super hits, is too excited about the film. Quiz him on the superhero angle and Milan is quick to revert, "There are many superhero films out there but this isn't one of them. Ours is a masala entertainer with a twist, that's all that I'll say at this point."
The filmmaker adds, "Saif and I had always been talking about reuniting again for another film after Kachche Dhaage but somehow nothing materialized. This time, he was shooting in Istanbul while I was in Prague. We were speaking to each other over the phone when he reminded me again of doing another film which is when I narrated a plot to him. He was very thrilled about it and agreed to do the film over the phone itself. It was instinctive for both of us and I'm sure the outcome will be something to watch out for."
On turning producer, Milan Luthria says, "My company Vertex Motion Pictures has already line produced The Dirty Picture so I thought why not go all the way. Partnering with Bhushan is great. We are both coming from super hit movies behind us. The connect is great and the confidence is high."
This film will be Milan and Saif's second project after Kachche Dhaage which happened 13 years ago! Saif also expresses tremendous happiness on reuniting with Milan and collaborating with Bhushan Kumar. "I am very happy to be working with Milan again. I would like to associate with his kind of cinema."
Meanwhile, Saif Ali Khan adds, "It will be exciting to work with Bhushan. Though we interacted for the music of Agent Vinod, we will be working together as producer and actor for the first time. Bhushan is a very successful producer and makes his films grand and larger-than-life. It's important to choose a subject and make it with the right people. That's what has happened to this film."
