Vidhu Vinod Chopras stand on multiplex issue

Looks like historicals/costume dramas are back in vogue. The latest rumour doing the rounds is that the Jain brothers of Venus have decided to remake MUGHAL-E-AZAM with Amitabh Bachchan [as Emperor Akbar], Shah Rukh Khan [as Prince Salim] and Aishwarya Rai [as Anarkali]. Reportedly, Rajkumar Santoshi will direct the project, while A.R. Rahman will compose the music.

But Ratan Jain, the head honcho of Venus, denied the development when we called to verify. "It's true that we were planning a historical at a point of time. It's also true that we did speak to Santoshi about it. But it's not true that we're going ahead with the project," Jain states.

Reason for aborting the project? "It's not viable economically in the current scenario," pat comes the reply, "Let me further clarify that Venus has no plans of making a historical at the moment." Point noted!
