After the success of his first ever biopic, Bhag Milkha Bhag, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra goes on to recreate the legend of Mirza Sahibaan in his last venture Mirzya. However, despite Mr Mehra’s eye for the art and the brilliant display of Rajasthan’s folk art, the film had nothing much to offer. The director, whose last film Mirzya did not really do well at the box office, says his film is not so much about comparisons as it is a story of people and relationships.

“There is no attempt to overplay or undermine, it’s about seeing this world through different eyes and finding beauty and inspiration in it,” he said. National award-winning actress Anjali Patil plays the role of a mother to one of the child protagonists in the film, whose dream is to build a toilet for his mother.

Filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra is working on his next film, which will be a multi-starrer drama. Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra Pictures (ROMP) has joined hands with KriArj Entertainment for the new project.

“It’s a drama film. It will be Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra kind of cinema. It’s a multi-starrer film with top Bollywood actors,” an official from Kriraj Entertainment said. The makers will soon lock the cast. The film is likely to go on floors by the end of this year. Presently, Mehra is working on Mere Pyare Prime Minister, which revolves around the friendship of four children living in the slums. The film is being shot in the slums of Mumbai.
