What is Milan Luthria making next? Post TAXI NO. 9211, Milan is working on two projects simultaneously. Theres a project for Ramesh Sippy [producer of TAXI NO. 9211]. Its a love story. We have been at it since the past three months, Milan genuinely sounds excited.
Rumors are rife that he is planning to cast Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham. Not true, he smiles, I havent decided the casting yet. In fact, I dont want to zero in on any name till I have a hardbound script on hand, he smiles.
Theres another project with Sanjay Dutt, who acted in Milans DEEWAAR. Sanju and I are keen on a particular subject. This ones an action film with loads of adventure. As a matter of fact, its based on a true story, Milan divulges.
Surprisingly, Milan has no clue about the producer yet. I havent figured that out. After the heartening response to TAXI NO. 9211, a number of producers are keen to sign me. I guess, Ill cross the bridge when I reach it, he enthuses.
Theres one more film in the pipeline, this ones for leading corporate house UTV. Right now, we are still negotiating, Milan clarifies, Its premature to talk about it at this stage.
But the one thing Milan has decided — and hes firm on it — is to complete the script first and start filming later, in that order. I dont mind devoting 6/8 months on the script. In fact, I am currently working 8/10 hours every day on two different scripts and Ive decided to make them back to back. Rajat Arroraa [writer of TAXI NO. 9211] and Ive developed a great rapport and hes writing the films, he smiles.
