Dus director to make sequel: Gyarah

Subhash K Jha | March 13, 2006 15:05 IST

Anubhav SinhaSunnyDeol's careeris going through a roughpatch.With the actor's latest release Teesri Aankh failing to create a stir at the box office, he is all set to bounce back with the plum roleof a serial killer in Dus director Anubhav Sinha's next.

"We have nothadtoo many Hindi films on serial killersexcept forRed Rose, which had Rajesh Khanna in the lead. I find theprocess of getting into a killer's mind very interesting,"says thefilmmaker. "WhenI approached Sunny for a positive role in the filmtentatively titled Pancham,he was morekeen to playthe serial killer.It proveshowstarsconstantly want tochange tracks."

The film with 'lots of music' will be launched shortly.

Jigyaasa: Avoid at all costs!

To describe Sinha's risemeteoric would be no exaggeration. He rose from being the director ofthe small-budget Tum Bin to being themaker of Dus. "I have come a long way," he says, modestly. "Butthe going has not been easy. Though Duswas a hit,andraked in Rs 5,00,00,000in Mumbai alone, thebox office wrote it off asa mere commission earner. How cansomeone do that?Salman (Khan) told meI was an idiot to have made Tum Bin with small stars."

Anubhav has learnt from his mistakes. Besides Pancham, he has three other films with big stars lined up. "I will start off with a caper thriller called Cash, with Ajay Devgan and Zayed Khan,inJune. It'sa commitment I madeto producer Sahail Lakhani even before the release of Dus. I was given just Rs786 as the signing amountfor Cash."

He adds, "All myfilms will havebig names but they won't be multi-starrers. I have taken a cue fromAmol Palekar's Paheli. It hadbig starsplaying definite characters."

After that, he plans to make Gyarah, a sequel to Dus.That will be followed by a film for children. "Itwon't talk down to them.It will bea huge film, with abudget even bigger than Dus."
