Bhansali to co-produce Big B starrer ‘Chenab Gandhi’February 12th, 2009 - 4:57 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, Feb 12 (IANS) RGP-Sa Re Ga Ma has clinched a deal with Sanjay Leela Bhansali to co-produce the Rs.350 million “Chenab Gandhi”, which will have Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role.
“It was always a dream to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali. And to get Bhansali on board is like the ultimate for me as a producer,” Madhu Mantena, head of the film division of RGP-Sa Re Ga Ma, told IANS.
“And this film gives me not just the chance to work with one of the finest filmmakers, but also with the mighty Mr. Amitabh Bachchan,” said Mantena who co-produced Aamir Khan starrer “Ghajini”.
The film also stars Vidya Balan and Hurman S. Baweja and will be directed by Vibhu Puri.
“Bhansali has done period films ‘Devdas’ and ‘Black’. Both had a lot of period detailing that went a long way into making the goings-on look convincing. We hope to recreate an era in ‘Chenab Gandhi’ with the same degree of conviction,” said Mantena.
This would be the first of RPG-Sa Re Ga Ma’s projects to roll off and would be followed by Abbas Tyrewala’s “1-800-Love”.
