Shahid Kapoor’s mother, Neelima Azim’s has finally found a producer for her directorial venture – Paul Mukul Taneja, who is based in London.
Interestingly, it’s Shahid’s Kaminey co-star, Chandan Sanyal and not Shahid who will play the lead. What’s even more interesting is that Neelima has cast Shahid’s ex-girlfriend Bhavna Pani opposite Sanyal. Shahid and Bhavna went to the same college and were more than good friends for nearly two years.
A source says, “Neelima was impressed by Sanyal’s histrionics in Kaminey. As for Bhavna, she treats her like her own daughter and thinks she is a good actress.”
Ustad Raza Ali Khan, grandson of music maestro Bade Ghulam Ali Khan, will compose the music.
Talking about her role, Bhavna says, “I play a playful nautanki dancer. I am very happy that I am doing this film.”
Neelima says, “Bhavna is a terrific dancer. However, I will need one more hero and heroine, who I will cast very soon.”
Neelima will play Chandan’s mother.
After painting several solos of his favourite ladies — Madhuri Dixit and Amrita Rao, legendary artist MF Hussain is now geared up to paint the two together on the same canvas for the very first time. The inspiration for this painting comes from a film, which will star Amrita and Madhuri, and will be made by Hussain.
“Hussain has even asked Madhuri and Amrita to visit him during Diwali this year to discuss the logistics of the film,” said a source.
Confirming the story, Hussain said, “I do a lot of combination paintings. I have started working on the Madhuri and Amrita painting. It should be ready in a month’s time.”
Along with the painting, Hussain has also begun working on the film.
Confirming his plans of making a film with the two Bollywood actresses, Hussain said, “It’s a bit early to divulge any details but yes, there is one such project in the pipeline. I want to make a film starring Madhuri and Amrita. I believe that my painting is incomplete unless I make a film on it.”
When asked if unlike his previous films Gaja Gamini (2000) and Meenaxi: A Tale Of Three Cities (2004), he would now like to make a commercial film, he replied, “No. I don’t want anybody to dictate what I have to make.”
