Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's next a mythological thriller
With 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' doing reasonably well at the box office , Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra is in a buoyant mood and the director, who generally doesn't rush into a project, is gearing up for his next. However, it is not 'MirzaSahiban', as was reported earlier, but 'Raja and the Legend of the Flute'.
"This is a film that Mehra had in mind for years. It is his dream project. He wanted to make it even before he started with Bhaag Milkha. The film was earlier titled Paanch Kaurav. It is a mythical thriller centred on a hunt for Krishna's flute and has an expensive larger-than-life set up," said a source.
When contacted, Mehra confirmed the story and said, "Yes, I am working on the film. It will be made simultaneously in English and Hindi. The Hindi version will be called Raja Aur Krishna Ki Bansuri.
The film will be set in the 1920s' India under the British Raj. It is going to be an action romance-drama affair, and in that order."
About his other ambitious project Mirza Sahiban, of which he had previously spoken to TOI (dated April 18, 2013), he explained, "That is going to be my first foray into pure romance. It will have a contemporary setup. Gulzar bhai is writing the script and once it is ready, I will take it up."
Asked which film is scheduled to go on floors first, he said, "There are a lot of variables to consider when you make a film. I am equally excited about both the films. I will start working on whichever shapes up well first."
About the cast, Mehra said it was too early and refused to reveal any details.
