Info on Santoshi's new projects

KhakeeRajkumar Santoshi's KHAKEE is winning plaudits from most quarters, for yet another riveting drama told in a larger-than-life fashion. The film-maker is upbeat about the reviews the film has fetched. “I am grateful to the media for appreciating my film. The film has got a four... from reputed names, which is extremely encouraging. They had been generous even during THE LEGEND OF BHAGAT SINGH,” he shares.

Meanwhile, A.B. Corp.'s RANVEER will go on the floors next. Though Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt and Abhishek Bachchan have been signed for the project, the picture is not clear when it comes to the leading ladies. Speculations about Santoshi making a choice between Lara Dutta and Gul Panag have been doing the rounds for quite some time, but he maintains that no such developments have taken place.

Santoshi's film for Balaji will begin only towards the end of the year. As far as his plans to cast Madhuri Dixit in a forthcoming venture are concerned, he admits, “As of now, there's no progress on that front. We are waiting for the right subject. She is an extremely talented actress and there's a strong possibility that we will work together in the future.”
