Last Updated: Fri, May 13, 2005 11:48 hrs

After almost a year of exile J.P. Dutta is back in the scene. The movie mogul is ready to make two new films both women centric and profound.

The first project is a brand new interpretation of Muzaffar Ali's classic epic Umrao Jaan that will feature Priyanka Chopra in the role immortalized by Rekha in 1981.

"Among the current heroines I think Priyanka has the 'It' factor. She is sensuous, graceful and a very good Kathak dancer," says J.P. Dutta when asked about his choice.

The film will go on floors in October and J P promises that his version of Umrao Jaan will be very different.
