Chocolate makers next

While CHOCOLATE has met with diverse reactions from moviegoers — some liked it, some didnt — director Vivek Agnihotri has moved on. After attempting a thriller in his first big-screen venture, Agnihotri is planning a sport-based film next. Itll revolve around football, Agnihotri divulges. Did the critical success of IQBAL prompt him to make a film on a sports-based theme? Not at all, the techno-savvy director corrects me, Ive always believed in making a film on human triumph. In fact, much before I made CHOCOLATE, Id made a tele-film for Sahara called BOOND, which revolved around an alcoholic couple and their eventual triumph. The film that I am planning next has a sport-based theme, but its got more to do with the triumph of the human spirit. Agnihotri hasnt zeroed in on the star cast yet. But its going to be a big film. Much bigger than CHOCOLATE for sure. I hope to finalize the cast once were completely ready with the screenplay, he adds. A leading corporate house is expected to produce this flick. Talking of CHOCOLATE, Agnihotri isnt displeased with its box-office outcome. I admit, it wasnt meant for certain audiences [the hoi polloi]. Those expecting Anil and Suniel to bash up ten guys or hoping to catch Emraan in a smooch session were a tad disappointed, but a section of moviegoers have loved the film. The fact that the producers sold the film for a relatively low price as also the fact that the same number of prints are in circulation in its fourth week clearly indicates that the film has found acceptance, he explains.
