While on clashes, two diverse films - Rajkumar Santoshi's Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani and madhur bhandarkar's Jail - will vie for public attention on 6th November. "Both are diverse in terms of content. Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani is a rom-com, while Jail is a hard-hitting film," Madhur tells me.
Madhur, however, denies that Jail is based on Sanjay Dutt's life. "It's not! Nor is it based on Alistair Pereira's life. Parag Dixit (the protagonist in Jail, portrayed by Neil Nitin Mukesh) is fictionalised character and bears no similarity with anyone," Madhur clarifies.
The supremely talented filmmaker feels that it's important to say a new story in every film. "I'd love to make a love story next. Or a comedy. Also, it would be interesting to explore the story of fading actresses. How they cope with life, when their career is over and the fans have disappeared... that's a interesting thought, isn't it?," he asks.
Would be interesting to see Madhur try out new genres.
