Directing Away

Director Mudassar Aziz did not hit the box office jackpot with his last film Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi. But the filmmaker is moving forward with his next project and there was talk that his next film might have Arjun Kapoor and Taapsee Pannu in the lead. When we called Aziz to comment on this, he said, “No, I am not. I don’t know why these things are floating around. I am on the verge of finishing the script and I am not actually in talks with anybody. This is the time when either as directors or actors, we have just about finished our term of work and had a break. Nobody has really spoken to anybody, yet. Once the casting circle starts with my film, then I think speculation is valid. But right now, there is no reason to even speculate because I have not got to that level.”

Also, some time ago, we told you that Aziz was working on a script which was a remake of the 1978 film Pati, Patni Aur Woh. Asked if it was the same script he is completing, the director shared, “Yes, it is the same one. But it is not exactly a remake of Pati, Patni Aur Woh, but a re-enactment. It is the 2019 version. It is quite clearly BR Chopra saab’s plot but, of course, the times in 1978 were very different. So, this is looking at marriage in a 2019 way.”
