Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra goes funny
Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra who recently wrapped up the shoot for his next film MERE PYAARE PRIME MINISTER announced his reunion with RANG DE BASANTI writer Rensil D’Silva for his upcoming light-hearted comedy based on the generational conflict between a father-son duo.
Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra has recently locked the script for the film and the project is in initial stages of casting.
Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra points out that to understand the younger generation we need to understand the generation before them. He admits that he’s learning new things every day by viewing the world through his 19-year-old daughter Bhairavi and 17-year-old son, Vedant. “I place myself in their shoes and I think that life has demanded a lot less from my generation. It wasn’t exactly la la land for us, but today there are demands of the society, of friend circles, of workplaces. Everything has gone through a transition and we are on the brink of a new social order, one that is more gender-neutral,”
The director further adds that his new film will explore competition, peer pressure, and modern-day relationships. “The choices you have to make in life in this age are very different. And we’re going to explore that,”
On the work front, his next project as a producer is FANNE KHAN featuring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Anil Kapoor, and Rajkummar Rao.
