Has Ram Gopal Varma signed Saurabh Shukla to direct his next?
By Manisha Deshpande
Writer-director Saurabh Shukla is eagerly looking forward to the release of his forthcoming psycho-thriller, CHEHRA. The Dino Morea-Bipasha Basu starrer, has Bipasha playing the role of a woman who keeps hallucinating, until it comes to light that her fear is not just imaginary. The film is said to have shades of similarity with the super-hit thriller, RAAZ, which also starred the Dino-Bipasha jodi. Shukla and the producer, Shabnam Kapoor, are now working on a unique pre-release campaign for the film. "I am expecting the film to get an excellent draw at the box-office," says Shukla.
Saurabh is also busy these days with the dialogues of Kamal Hassan's Hindi-Tamil bilingual MUMBAI EXPRESS, in which he also plays a significant role. The latest buzz in the trade however is that he has been approached by Ram Gopal Varma to direct a film for him. However he denies the news. "I did receive a few calls from people wanting to confirm this. But I haven't been signed to direct any film. I guess there is a confusion because there is another Saurabh (Saurabh Narang), who is likely to do a film for Varma," he says.
