Sudhir Mishra plans his next – New New Delhi!

We agree that’s an odd-sounding film title, but there’s nothing strange about the story of the new project

After Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Delhi-6 and Abhinay Deo’s Delhi Belly, filmmaker Sudhir Mishra is the next one to be inspired by the capital city of India. The Yeh Saali Zindagi director who is readying to release Arjun Rampal-Chitrangda Singh-starrer tentatively titled Inkaar has set his heart and mind on a new story.

Delhi-bred Mishra plans to highlight the new culture rising in the city he once called home. “There is old Delhi, New Delhi and there is now the new New Delhi where an ambitious breed of brokers, middlemen, mediators, political lobbyists and wheeler dealers rule the roost,” says the director, and elaborates, “My New New Delhi would go into that world of ambitious go-getters who have turned Delhi into a curious mixture of Shanghai and Washington.”

And who is going to be a part of this film? Mishra has been considering to get hold of his blue-eyed boy Arunoday Singh (remember the tall, fair and handsome hunk who got naughty with Sunny Leone in Jism 2?) for the protagonist’s role. He will play the character of a fixer, and through his journey the plot about the newfound drive of Delhiites, will unfold. But that’s if and only if the Jism 2 hunk manages to get rid of his yuppie persona and slip into his dilli ka munda character!

Let’s wait and find out if Arunoday overcomes the new challenge set by the director who he calls his mentor.
