Firoz Nadiadwala launches 2 grand projects

Prolific producer Firoz Nadiadwala (whose multi-starrer Aan is all set to release soon) launched two of his auspicious big projects yesterday at J.W.Marriot in Mumbai. The first film titled Phir Hera Pheri is a sequel to his earlier super hit comedy Hera Pheri (2000) while the second titled Deewane Huye Pagal is a complete fresh film though its publicity stills is designed on the same lines of his earlier action comedy Awara Pagal Deewana (2002). More on Deewane Huye Pagal Apart from the publicity stills, the entire crew of Deewane Huye Pagal also comprises of the same team of Awara Pagal Deewana with music by Anu Malik, dialogues by Neeraj Vora and story-screenplay by Neeraj Vora and Mangesh Kulkarni. This is choreographer Ahmed Khans second film as a director after Lakeer. Starring Anil Kapoor in the role of a gangster, the film also stars Shahid Kapoor who plays a college boy in love with Anil Kapoors sister. Incidentally, Anil had auditioned and selected Ahmed Khan in 1986 (then as a child artist) for Mr. India. Anil confessed that he felt very nostalgic being directed by Ahmed Khan after 18 years. He described the film as a Light-hearted comedy. A total entertainer with lots of music, action and comedy! A complete family entertainer! Complementing Shahid Kapoor, Anil said, He has taken the best of both his father and mother. (The acting prowess of father Pankuj Kapoor and the good looks of mother Neelima Azeem). When questioned whether his film was a remake of Mickey Blue Eyes, Ahmed replies, Many people have been asking me this question. Everybody takes references from everywhere. We are re-creaters, not creaters. To this Shahid jokingly added, Actually its a mixture of 25 films including Awara Pagal Deewana and Mickey Blue Eyes. Well send you the list. Its a bilingual in Hindi and English. Later Shahid and Anil presented a musical skit-n-dance performance in sync with their films story. More on Phir Hera Pheri The sequel of Hera Pheri will not be directed by the original director Priyadarshan but by Satish Kaushik. This is the first time that director Satish Kaushik is attempting his hands on a comedy (despite the fact that he has played comic roles in Hindi films ever since his start). The male leads of the film are same as the predecessor (Akhsay-Suniel-Paresh) though the female cast has been entirely revamped. Lara Dutta and model-turned-actress Gauhar Khan (introducing) star opposite Akshay Kumar while Neha Dhupia is paired opposite Suniel Shetty. About the film Kaushik says, Its not an easy job to direct a sequel of a successful film. I am very nervous at this juncture but will try my best to make this film as good as possible. He added, Akshay, Suniel and Paresh have comic strip characters in the film. Neeraj (Vora) has worked out something, which is more funny and bouncy, and on a real take-off level. Governor Mohommad Fazal gave the mahurat shot of the film along with yesteryear superstar Dilip Kumar. Paresh Rawal and Rajpal Yadav are the only common actors in both the film.
