Director Ketan Mehta is now working on a new subject for his next film. The film will be based on the life of painter Ravi Verma. Says Mehta, he had read a Marathi novel 'Raja Ravi Verma' few years back and was inspired to make a film on the subject. Ketan Mehta's last film was The Rising starring Aamir Khan which didn't do very well at the Box office.

Interestingly, Bobby Bedi, the producer of The Rising has also planned a film on the same subject. Bedi and Mehta had differences over the marketing and distribution of the film Mangal Pandey whereby they parted ways. And now, both are separately working on same subject, which is the life of painter Ravi Verma.

Bobby Bedi has roped in Shaji Karun, a South director for his film. This is the same film for which Madhuri Dixit was approached for playing the female lead. There is also a buzz that Bedi is in talks with Ajay Devgan for the male lead.
