Big B & Sir Ben Kingsley starrer Teen Patti at Cannes Film Festival

Rumi Jafry, who has penned a number of films for David Dhawan, has now turned director. And the writer turned director has assembled an exciting star cast for his directorial debut, which will be produced by Afzal Khan [HUM KISISE KUM NAHIN].

Starring Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan and Ajay Devgan [Salman and Ajay have been teamed after HUM DIL DE CHUKE SANAM] in lead roles, the film is expected to roll in March next year. Will it be on the lines of a David Dhawan film? Let's say, it'll be an entertainer with drama and romance aplenty, Rumi divulges, adding that the film is neither a remake of a South film nor a rehashed version of a Hollywood flick. It's an original idea absolutely, he declares.

Rumi had been nursing the desire of getting into film direction for quite some time. I could've taken the plunge two years ago, but I decided to wait and learn the ropes thoroughly, he smiles.

The film, not titled yet, will star just one heroine. One of the USPs of ANDAAZ and even MUJHSE SHAADI KAROGI was the fresh casting. I may even settle for a new face if she pairs off well with the two heroes. I can't let go of their dates [the actors have given bulk dates from March 2005 onwards], Rumi adds.

Let's hope Rumi scales dizzier heights in direction as well.
