After winning accolades for his writing [dialogues] in Partner, Sanjay Chhel is back to his first love -- direction. After making two films, Khoobsurat and Kyaa Dil Ne Kahaa, Chhel is planning to direct two films one after the other. The first, titled Maan Gaye Mughal-E-Azam, is a comedy, while the second is titled Patel - Punjabi [it was initially titled Khanna - Patel].

"Maan Gaye Mughal-E-Azam stresses on humour. It's a dhamaal film, but not a mindless entertainer. There's a purpose for everything that's depicted on screen," Chhel states, "It's on the lines of Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro... It revolves around a theatre group." Chhel has signed Paresh Rawal, Rahul Bose and Javed Jaffrey for principal roles, while a few more names are under finalization. The Jains of Venus will produce this film.

The second project, Patel - Punjabi, will revolve around two characters - a Gujarati and a Punjabi. "Paresh Rawal and Mithun Chakraborty have agreed in principle to act in the film," Chhel divulges. Percept Picture Company will produce this project.
