It’s been quite some time since you last saw a Sanjal Leela Bhansali flick on the screen. The last release ‘Guzarish’ received quite a few critical acclaims and Bhansali is now all set to get started on his latest endeavour. It’s a known fact however that Sanjal has now taken up production on a big scale and his next film as a director is on far shores. Enquiries only lead to funny glances from the veteran film maker.
Sources close to the ace director stated in an amused way that almost every other person seems to be more tensed about seeing him direct his next movie than the director himself. Sanjay has always worked at his own pace and does not believe in compromising on his work over deadlines. The source further added that in the last one and a half decade Sanjay has not made more than six films. This comes to two and a half year per film and thus there is actually no reason for any sort of speculations.
The producer turned director however seems to have too much on his plate to touch direction for a while now. My Friend Pinto’ releases this very Friday, ‘Rowdy Rathore’ is more or less half complete and is all set for an early summer release next year and ‘Shirin Farhad Ki Nikal Padi’ is also stated for launch this December. Now this is hardly time enough to get back to direction.
However Sanjay claims that the urge to direct is still pretty strong in him. He also stated that a script is already in process of being prepared for his next directorial stint and the film industry can expect him on his next movie by May next year.
Sanjay also gave a logical reasoning for the delay. He made it quite clear that after every film he directs he takes a typical break of about a year and a half so it will be time to be back half way down next year. However it seems there is a big hush-hush over his next project coz he didn’t even want to disclose the genre of his next film. Let’s see whether the Sanjal Lila Bhansali magic captivated audiences yet again.
