Sanjay Baba Bails Out Flop Jackky Bhagnani By Subhash K Jha
In Munnabhai MBBS Sanjay Dutt had thumbed his nose at academic qualifications by fudging his way through a doctorate. Now in Faltu, he questions our educational system in a less satirical far more serious tone.
When Vashu Bhagnani wanted to re-launch his son he needed an A-lister as a box-office support.
Every leading man declined politely. Only Bollywood dildaar Sanju Baba came forward to work with Jackky Bhagnani in a film that starts in September to be directed by choreographer Remo. It will star Sanjay Dutt and Vashu’s son Jackky who made a disastrous debut this year with Kal Kisne Dekha.
Jackky’s second film is not an escapist entertainer.
Says Vashu, “It’s a film about the lacuna in present day education. When I heard Remo’s story I was bowled over. It’s about the failure of today’s educational system to guide our youngsters into suitable careers. It’s about how there’s too much stress in and on academics and too little on actually tapping every child’s potential. Remo has earlier made an award-winning Bengali film (Lal Paharer Katha with Mithun Chakbraborty).”
Vashu’s son’s post-debut film going by the improbable title of Faltu sounds like a departure from convention.
“It is,” concedes Vashu. “But nothing conventional works any more. I want to bring new talent into the industry. And the title is an acronym. I can’t reveal the full form. It will give away the plot.”
