Bollywood News

After the uproarious welcome given by critics to Love Sex Aur Dhokha, its director Dibakar Banerjee is teaming up with his Oye Lucky Lucky Oye hero Abhay Deol all over again, this time for a political thriller.

Says Dibakar, "It is a political thriller set in a state where a new government has been formed. It will again be in a new cinematic language. But it will be in the conventional format, not the digital format used in LSD. It's written by me and Urmi Juvekar who was my creative producer on LSD. She's one of the most politically savvy writers I know."

The political thriller will be set in an imaginary state. Says Dibakar, "The state has just formed after clamoring for statehood for a long time and now poised to get big economic sanctions. Then a political assassination happens."

Dibakar has decided to cast Abhay Deol in the political thriller. "Yes I want Abhay in the political thriller. But now because he has started his own production, we've to work out his dates."

About LSD Dibakar says, "I never expected so much praise. It's overwhelming. We thought some would get the point. And that would be enough."

But Dibakar regrets not fighting the censor board over its decision to remove all references to the caste factor in the first story of LSD. "I regret that. It completely diluted the story. We had no time to contest their decision. And also they were letting so much of the rest go unscathed. They explained to me that anything could happen if there were caste references in the love story. Mobs would burn a scooter, damage a theatre."

Now Dibakar hopes to see LSD become financially feasible, so he could have the freedom to make the films he wants to. "Ekta Kapoor has marketed LSD like a dream. It couldn't have been any better."
