Fool & Final

Topnotch choreographer Ahmed Khans directorial debut LAKEER may have missed the target at the box-office, but the child artist turned choreographer turned director is all geared up to start his second film. Titled FOOL & FINAL, the film will be produced by Firoz A. Nadiadwala and star Sunny Deol, Suniel Shetty and Shahid Kapoor in the lead. While Bipasha Basu has been teamed opposite Sunny, a leading lady opposite Shahid and one more lead man are currently under finalization. FOOL & FINAL also has an impressive supporting cast, which includes Jackie Shroff, Javed Jaffrey, Paresh Rawal, Om Puri, Rajpal Yadav, Vijay Raaz and Razzaq Khan. When you hear a title like FOOL & FINAL, you assume that its a laugh riot on the lines of David Dhawan and Anees Bazmee entertainers. FOOL & FINAL is on the lines of M.I. 2 and SNATCH, while the humor is of the DIL CHAHTA HAI and ANDAZ APNA APNA variety. I enjoy David and Anees films, but I cannot think like them when it comes to humor, Ahmed informs me. To be shot in Dubai and Brazil, FOOL & FINAL will take off on January 15, 2006 with the picturization of the climax first. I want to ensure that I have a mind-blowing climax when the enthusiasm levels of the stars and technical team are very much high, he jokes, but gets serious soon thereafter, I dont want to go wrong this time. The start, the middle and the end should be equally spell-binding. Ahmed hopes to wrap up the shooting by June 2006. While ace composers Vishal-Shekhar are likely to compose the music [six songs], action expert Allan Amin and A-list writers Neeraj Vora [associated with Priyadarshan] and Anurag Kashyap [associated with Mani Ratnam] have been confirmed for the project in question. What took Ahmed so long to start his next directorial venture, after LAKEER? Three factors! One, I had six assignments to honor as a choreographer [SALAAM | NAMASTE, MILENGE MILENGE, VAAH! LIFE HO TOH AISI, Anil Sharmas film with the Deols and Subhash Ghais two films]. Two, I didnt want to hurry up on the script till it was complete. Three, procuring bulk dates from an extremely busy cast takes time. Now that everything has fallen into place, I am ready to go ahead with it, he tells me. So, whats the USP of FOOL & FINAL? Itll have great music and terrific stunts. With Shahid, Vishal-Shekhar and Ahmed Khan in a film, expect a spell-binding musical score and great choreography. And with Sunny, Allan Amin and producer Firoz A. Nadiadwala [known for stylish action fares] teaming up for the first time, expect pulse-pounding action sequences as well, Ahmed retorts. Meanwhile, Ahmed has bagged yet another prestigious assignment [as a director], besides FOOL & FINAL. He has been signed by none other than Subhash Ghai to direct a film for Mukta Arts Ltd. Way to go!
