The two directors have planned a collaborative film along the lines of the Bourne series
Anubhav Sinha has resurfaced. You would think that after a debacle like RA.One, its director would lie low for a while longer, but that’s not the case. Barely three months after his ambitious flick was panned by critics and audiences alike, Anubhav is back with his next project – an action thriller! The director’s favourite star Shahrukh Khan is yet to sign on the dotted line – we understand his reservations – but someone else has already agreed to helm the project. And that’s none other Sudhir Mishra. The Yeh Saali Zindagi director is known for backing offbeat cinema and this is the first time he has agreed to be part of a totally commercial entertainer.
We hear that the thriller will have cerebral and physical action and will be along the lines of the Bourne trilogy. Irrfan Khan, Arunoday Singh and Vidyut Jamwal have reportedly agreed to do the film, while the hunt for a male lead is still on. Sudhir has said that he will go ahead with it if his ambitious project Mehrunissa is delayed any longer. What do you make of these two directors from completely different schools of cinema coming together? Anyway, though Sudhir is making a commercial film for the first time, we have faith in his capabilities. As we see it, the real challenge is for Anubhav: Can he make a film worse than RA.One?
