Shyam Benegals Chamki

After NETAJI THE FORGOTTEN HERO, Shyam Benegal has started work on his next venture, titled CHAMKI. Produced by a corporate entity, WSG Pictures, the veteran has roped in Urmila Matondkar and Jimmy Shergill for the principal roles. A.R. Rahman, who had scored the music of Benegals past few films, will score the music of this one as well. Set in Rajasthan, close to the Indo-Pak border, CHAMKI belongs to a tribal community who are traditionally entertainers, snake charmers, mendicants, balladeers and dancers. They indulge in cross border smuggling, are often involved in petty crimes and do not necessarily respect national borders. Says Pravesh Sippy [who was earlier with Popcorn and is now the C.O.O. of WSG Pictures], We hope to start filming CHAMKI in October-end. Meanwhile, the production house has also acquired the rights of a book, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari, which will take shape of a film soon.
