Will Shilpa Shetty be able to give Harman Baweja a new lease of life?

After waiting in the wings for almost three years, the Love Story 2050 actor finally lands a project

Recently Shilpa Shetty spoke about her ambitious first production venture- Dishkiyaaon. And we instantly wondered what happened to Matrubhoomi with director Manish Jha that she had announced some time ago? Remember it was supposed to star two men and two women? Anyway, this is Bollywood and here plans change overnight. Shilpa said in an interview that her first production will be an action flick, with two leading men- a big star (to pull in the audience to the theatres of course) and the long-forgotten Harman Baweja – and a leading lady. We hope that this time her production does take off, not for her sake, as she has several business ventures to keep her occupied, but for the Love Story 2050 debutant. After waiting it out for almost three years, there is finally a glimmer of hope for Harman. ‘Coz after the debacle of his last film What’s Your Rashee? in 2009 no one seemed interested in filmmaker Harry Baweja’s son. While he didn’t have many producers knocking his door, the one film – It’s My Life – also didn’t find distributors. Not many know that soon after Love Story 2050 Harman shot with Genelia D’Souza for this film directed by Anees Bazmee and produced by Sanjay Kapoor. Though on and off there have been reports of renewed interest in the project but we are yet to hear of an official announcement. In any case, we hear that Harman has already started training for Shilpa’s film and is hopeful that this action flick adds some momentum to his inactive career.
