Percept Picture Company will commission two films with Nagesh Kukunoor as the director in the year 2007.
Percept and Nagesh announced their next film together after Dor titled Aashayein. John Abraham has been finalized for the lead role.
Nagesh Kukunoor says, "Working with Percept on Dor gave me the comfort of associating with someone who has the guts to support cinema that bends the rules. I would like to take this relationship further. Aashayein is the first step and Bemisal will be the next. This is what we hope to do- content cinema that makes box-office sense."
Aashayein is a story of a compulsive gambler who discovers new meanings of fortune and life through some dramatic turn of events.
Apart from John, the rest of the cast is yet to be finalized. The second film with the working title Bemisal is scheduled to go on floor in July 2007. The cast of the film is to be finalized as well. Both these movies will be in association with SIC productions.
Mr. Shailendra Singh, Jt. MD Percept Holdings, "Our relationship with Nagesh started with Dor and now it's being consolidated with a 2 film commitment for 2007. What excites me the most about Nagesh and Percept joining hands is the fact that we are now finalizing plans between us not only to make films but also look at content development, script shops and the future of creating global cinema together. Nagesh is intelligent, creative and committed and these are also Percept's fundamental qualities, therefore this marriage. We are proud of our association."
