A few days back we reported that Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan will star in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s next film. Now the director has confirmed the news about working with producer Ronnie Screwala and Hrithik Roshan for a film titled Kabaddi.
“Scriptwriting is something I enjoy, but it is also very tedious and slow process. Sometimes it can take you 2 years, ‘Rang De Basanti’ took me five years to write and get it right. Yes, I am working with Ronnie Screwala and I think we should be ready with the script in a year or so, from today and then we will decide about shooting,” said Mehra on the sidelines of a Gandhi Jayanti event in Mumbai.
On the reports that Hrithik had walked out of the film due to creative differences, he dismissed it as rumour and media speculation. “There is nothing like that. This is a wonderful thing, before I know things, media knows everything. Next time I will ask a journo what I should do.”
He also talked about his next production. “Film is progressing, shooting is over now, and the movie is titled ‘Mere Pyaare Prime Minister’. In the film, there is an 8-year-old boy, who writes a letter to Prime Minister of India asking him few questions and make some requests. And then goes all the way to Delhi, to hand him the letter.
“He is raised by a single mother in the film, her name is Sargam, played by Anjali Patil, and he wants to make a toilet for her mother.” He added, “The movie will release anywhere between February to July 2018”.
