Vinod Chopra Films and Reliance BIG Entertainment have inked a multiple film production deal to co-produce feature films over the next three years. The first feature film under the production deal is a mainstream English language film, BROKEN HORSES, which will be directed by Vinod Chopra himself, while the second film is TAALISMAAN, to be directed by Ram Madhvani.
Chopra's BROKEN HORSES, with a screenplay based on an original story by Chopra himself, is the work of several award-winning writers including Abhijat Joshi (LAGE RAHO MUNNABHAI, EKLAVYA and 64 SQUARES) and Jason Richman (BANGKOK DANGEROUS, SWING VOTE) and legendary BAFTA winner and Academy Award nominated screenwriter and executive producer, Nick Pileggi as script consultant (GOODFELLAS, CASINO and AMERICAN GANGSTER). Chopra has recently returned from script and development meetings in Los Angeles and scouting locations in New Mexico.
Ram Madhavani's TAALISMAAN is a love story inspired by the epic novel, 'Chandrakanta', written in 1892 by Babu Devkinandan Khatri, which inter-weaves and mixes intoxicating elements of magic and war.
