Still from One Two Three
He's penned one of the most successful shows on television [OFFICE OFFICE] and has three films lined up for release in the next few weeks. Ashwani Dhir may be unknown to film buffs, but the writer-director makes his directorial debut with the laughathon One Two Three. That's not all, for Ashwani has two more films lined up for release - Krazzy 4 [he's penned the screenplay and dialogues of this film] and U Me Aur Hum [he's the dialogue writer here].

One Two Three revolves around three characters, all having the same name - Lakshminarayan. The promos of the film remind you of Priyadarshan's Hera Pheri. "It's not inspired by Hera Pheri at all. Sure, I've seen the works of Priyadarshan and Hera Pheri is a classic that has timeless appeal. However, One Two Three is not Hera Pheri, though I pray it goes the same way vis-a-vis the recall value," Ashwani states.

Prior to the release of One Two Three, Ashwani has been involved in a controversy, with Upen Patel, one of the actors in the film, getting miffed with the director for chopping off his role. Also, the leading ladies [Esha, Tanisha, Sameera] didn't vibe too well with one another. "Not just Upen, I've chopped off Esha and Sameera's songs as well. Besides, I've edited Suniel-ji and Paresh-ji's sequences. All for the betterment of the film. The original length was 2.30 hours, which was brought down to 2.09 hours. Going by that logic, even Esha, Paresh-ji and Suniel-ji should be upset, but they aren't," he clarifies.

Even before the release of his debut film, Ashwani has bagged two more assignments, to be produced by Kumar Mangat [One Two Three] and Suniel Shetty's Popcorn Entertainment, respectively. Talks are on with Sanjay Dutt for Suniel Shetty's production.
