Short Takes

• Irrfan must be a happy man now that he’s got another chance to work with Vishal Bharadwaj, in Saat Khoon Maaf. Well, he was not the original choice for this role as Bharadwaj wanted director Imtiaz Ali to play this role but Ali had refused.

• Believe it or burp! Reportedly, Vashu Bhagnani wanted Sanjay Dutt to do a vital role in his son’s next Faltu but the latter refused and Akshay Kumar was roped in. This was done to enhance the viability of the project. Now Bhagnani, to add more value to the set-up, has also roped in Madhavan. Is this because Kumar has delivered a string of flops in recent times?

 • After a hiatus of three years, director Ashwini Choudhary is all set to direct a film, and this one will have Sanjay Dutt in the lead.

 • Remember Nitin Manmohan? After lying low for years and years and years, he has woken up and will soon make a comeback. Soon, you will hear multiple announcements from his home-production.

 • Priyadarshan recently signed a $20-million, three-film deal with Woodpecker Pictures and the first project will be a remake of a Tamil film. This film was produced in Tamil first with newcomers and was a big hit. It was later made in Telugu, again with newcomers and was a huge hit.

 • Last week, we reported that after trying his hand at production with Hum Tum Aur Ghost, Arshad Warsi has decided to concentrate on acting and has said bye-bye to production. Now we hear that Manoj Bajpayee is keen to turn producer. Hope Bajpayee doesn’t say bye-bye to acting.
