It was last year, 2nd February 2012 to be precise, when director of such iconic and super hit films like RAJA HINDUSTANI and DHADKAN had revealed to us his plans of directing a romantic film but had not said anything about the title or the cast.
Just to refresh the memories of our patrons, we bring to you the relevant gist of our conversation with Dharmesh Darshan about his next project.
When we had caught up with the director (last year) he gave us the good news, ''Well, it's been a long gap (last major release AAP KI KHATIR - 2006), and yes, I am all set to direct a new film.'' When we had asked him the title of the film he said, ''I will not disclose the title of the film as yet.'' When we had queried further about the theme or genre of his new project, Dharmesh had said after a brief pause, ''All my films have a lot of romance, songs, dances, beautiful faces, good acting and pristine natural beauty and surroundings as shooting locales, and this one too will be no different.''
Circa mid-2013, and Dharmesh has announced that his next film will be titled DHADKAN 2 and it will star newcomers in lead roles! And this decision does not seem to be a coincidence of sorts, as the title (DHADKAN 2) appears to be inspired from the recent blockbuster success of AASHIQUI 2, which not only starred relatively fresh and young actors but was also a quasi-sequel to the blockbuster hit AASHIQUI. Quite in the same way DHADKAN 2 is a quasi-sequel to the super hit Akshay Kumar, Sunil Shetty and Shipla Shetty love triangle DHADKAN and will also star newbies. Need we say more!
For now, let's wait and watch and hope that the move proves beneficial for Dharmesh (in the long run) and the seasoned director gets back in form and continues the super success of DHADKAN.
