    After Bluffmaster! Rohan Sippy is finalising his next film. It will be based on Chetan Bhagat's latest novel One Night @ The Call Center.

    "I have just bought the rights of the film," confirms Rohan. Chetan Bhagat is also known for his Indian best seller Five Point Someone on life at IIT. The story is about things happening at a call centre and will "need an ensemble cast," informs Rohan. "I read the book and liked it very much.

    Then I met Chetan last November, after which I bought the rights and Chetan has been developing the screenplay for me."

    No Abhishek yet

    Word has it that he has approached Abhishek Bachchan for the lead role in the film. "That's not true. I haven't discussed anything with Abhishek as yet. Till I get a good shooting draft on hand I am not approaching anybody. The story has six well-developed and well thought-out characters."

    Directing dilemma

    Rohan is not even sure if he will be directing the film. "I haven't made up my mind whether I will direct or not.

    Right now we are looking at developmental quality material for our production company and in the process of sourcing them. After the screenplay is finalized we will take a call on the direction." No title has been finalised too

    What did he like about the novel? "The novel has the issue of overqualified people doing jobs so it is not necessarily a career. India is not providing adequate jobs to the people. That interested me a lot also apart from the storyline. A lot of work will be involved in it. It's a nice book but could be difficult to translate into a film."
