Ghai’s banner Mukta Arts celebrated its 36th anniversary today (October 24) and on the occasion the filmmaker announced an interesting bouquet of three films
“We have a healthy story bank, so we thought we should get into productions in a bigger way. So we are announcing the films on the anniversary,” said Subhash Ghai. The three movies are namely – social drama Ishq De Maare, biopic Sarabjit and fun film Idiot Nalayak Useless.
Ishq De Maare will star Dharmendra and his two sons – Sunny and Bobby Deol. “Ishq De Maare is with the Deols. It’s a social family drama. It’s a beautiful film, beautiful script… more of Hrishikesh Mukerjee style. It will be directed by Neeraj Pathak,” said Ghai.
Sarbajit is about Indian death row prisoner Sarabjit Singh who died in a Pakistan hospital in May, succumbing to his injuries after being attacked by his fellow inmates in jail. Ishwar Singh Muchhal will direct the biopic. Talking about Sarabjit, Ghai said: “I was so touched by the subject that I wanted to make it. People have accepted (athlete) Milkha Singh, so I think people are now liking biopics, so we contacted Sarabjit’s sister for the film. Scripting work is on and within 30 days we will finalise everything.”
