Sivaji Productions, the production banner founded by Thespian south star Sivaji Ganesan nearly 50 years ago with a Hindi film Amar Deep (1958), followed by Rakhi (1962), and more than 20 Tamil films, is now returning to Hindi films with Delhii Heights. Delhii Heights, produced by Prabhu and written and directed by Anand Kumar, will be launched in Delhi on May 1 with two shooting schedules in May and July. It features Jimmy Shergill, Neha Dhupia, Om Puri, Rohit Roy, Simone Singh, Vivek Shauq and Kamini Khanna. The film is slated for a Diwali release.
With Delhii Heights, Rabbi Shergill makes his debut in films as music director and lyrics writer. The banner's last Tamil film was Rajnikant starrer Chandramukhi, one of the biggest box-office grossers in the history of Tamil cinema.
