The Legendary artiste Raja Ravi Verma's (19th Century) passionate paintings have mesmerized most for years now. But it was the Award winning and popular Marathi novelist, Ranjet Desai who weaved the great Indian painter's life into his Award winning and classic novel, Raja Ravi Verma. Ketan Mehta is all set to paint the same magic on the silver screen with his adaptation of the book titled Colours of Passion- an Indo-French-German Venture.
Ketan and Deepa Sahi has been working on this project for quite some time now and have already procured the rights for the book. Known to do his homework before announcing or talking about his new projects, the film is going to be announced soon.
The life and work of the great painter Raja Ravi Verma has always fascinated Ketan. Especially the sensuality of the relationship between the artist and the muse which seems to be the stuff dreams are made of. Colours of passion is a perfect blend of contemporary relevance, universal appeal and cinematic exuberance.
The film is slated for a release in April 2007.
