Akshay can co-produce all films with me: Vipul ShahDecember 9th, 2008 - 6:53 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, Dec 9 (IANS) Director Vipul Shah, who is partnering with Akshay Kumar again for his third movie, said the superstar is welcome to co-produce all the films with him.The duo have co-produced hits like “Namaste London” and “Singh Is Kinng” and will now produce a third film, again based on relationships.
“Akshay and I have co-produced two films. He’s welcome to co-produce all the films with me, even the ones that don’t star him,” Shah said.
Dismissing rumours over the name of his third film, Shah said the film is not called “Action Replay” as there is absolutely no action in the movie.
“Apparently some write-up mentioned ‘Action Replay’ as the name of my new film with Akshay. I said it was not. But the title stuck,” he said.
He said shooting for the movie will begin March next year, adding that the script is complete.
“I’ve just wrapped up the script and I’m at a loss as to how to categorize it. It’s something neither Akshay nor I have done before. When I directed my first film ‘Aankhen’, I had defined it somewhat wrongly as a fantasy thriller. I’m not getting into classification for my new film until I’m sure,” Shah said.
Shah, who will wrap up his latest film “London Dreams” by January, said many films fail not because they’re bad but because they don’t tell the audience what to expect.”
He said recent terror attacks in Mumbai led to a slump in the film industry but the sector is set to recover with the release of Shah Rukh Khan’s much-awaited “Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi”.
“I think the horror of what happened at the Taj Hotel on 26/11 just made us feel like a city under siege. The entertainment business, I feel, will recover with ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’. Not every week do we get a film where Shah Rukh Khan and Aditya Chopra come together.”
