Bollywood's mass production mania

Last Updated: Wed, Nov 22, 2006 04:40 hrs

Everyone’s into mass production of feature films in Bollywood. Yash Raj, Dharma, Rajshri, UTV, Vishesh Films, P.N.C., Percept, Sahara, Venus, Tips, Mukta Arts, RGV, Firoz A. Nadiadwala, Sanjay Gupta, Vidhu Vinod Chopra… everyone’s involved in two/three projects at any given time. Now, Rakesh Roshan has decided to follow suit. Reportedly, the father and son duo of Rakesh and Hrithik Roshan have decided to start three films in the first round and for a change, the directorial reins would be offered to outside directors. Roshan Sr. will, of course, direct the third installment of KOI… MIL GAYA, but that’ll happen later…

“We are working on two/three scripts currently,” Roshan Sr. tells me, “And we’ll take a call the moment we okay them. If the scripts shape up to our expectations, we would announce the projects. Also, the decision to entrust the directorial reins will be taken only after we’re sure of the scripts.” Hope the rumor mills stop working overtime after reading this official clarification!
