The founding members of Excel Entertainment aren’t parting ways as reported. Instead they are chalking big plans for the coming years
Like every family, the successful duo – Farhan Akhtar and his producer-friend Ritesh Sidhwani have had tu tu main mains in the past few months. The producer has even acknowledged the differences in interviews, but it seems it’s nothing grave enough to terminate their long-standing association as Excel Entertainment. Farhan’s childhood friend Ritesh recently confirmed in a news report that they were making bigger and better plans for the forthcoming years. They have finalised, not one, but six big projects. The duo will kick start with Zoya’s next film by December 2012, followed by a script envisage and written by Zoya and Talaash director Reema Kagti. Post which they’ll make the sequels to Don 2 and Rock On!!, a film by the Delhi Belly director Abhinay Deo and another script put together by a debutant director. And as per trade pundits, Farhan and Ritesh are expected to invest a whooping Rs 300 crores in all these projects.
We are not sure what propelled their big plans. Maybe it was the Rs 200 crores plus collection of Don 2 or the most prestigious accolade – a National Award for best choreography for Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. Whatever the reason, we are certainly looking forward to their combined work.
