Mahesh Bhatt is back again with his latest offering City Lights, which is being directed by Hansal Mehta, whose last offering Shahid won him critical acclaim. Talking about the film, Bhatt has said that it was an official adaptation of Metro Manila (Britain’s entry for next year’s Oscars) in the Best Foreign Language category.
He even posted an image of the film’s lead stars Rajkumar Yadav and Patraleka and tweeted about the same stating “Citylights: India lives in her villages! This moving love story begins in the village & peaks in the city.”
Readers may remember that before Hansal Mehta coming on board as the director, it was Ajay Bahl (of BA Pass fame) who was supposed to direct the film.
