Over the years, actor – director Mahesh Manjrekar has given us some memorable films like Vaastav: The Reality (1999), Astitva (2000) and Viruddh… Family Comes First (2005), among others. Now, after a series of acting assignments, Mahesh Manjrekar is set to don the director’s hat again.
In fact we hear that Manjrekar will direct a project that will be produced by film-maker Sanjay Gupta. “Sanjay and Mahesh are doing a film together. It’s an action thriller. As they know each other for over 15 years, their sensibilities match superbly. Sanjay is confident that Mahesh is the best person to helm his next production,” says an insider.
Apparently, the yet-untitled film will have a ‘huge ensemble cast’, comprising 20-25 actors. “Sanjay is planning to erect a huge set at Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad for the film,” adds the source. When contacted, Sanjay, who is currently working on a film featuring Hrithik Roshan, says, “Mahesh is like a family member. I am looking forward to working with him.”
