Rahul Roy to direct again


MUMBAI: Actor-cum-director Rahul Roy is to soon launch his second film as director after a long hiatus.

His first project as director, "Mera Joota Hain Japani" starring Sanjay Dutt and Jackie Shroff in lead roles, had proved stillborn as it was shelved after a grand launch.

The new film is reportedly inspired by "I Am Sam," an English film starring Sean Penn, Michelle Pfeiffer, which tells the story of mentally-challenged father raising his daughter with the help of an extraordinary group of friends.

Says Rahul: "The story rests on three principal characters - the man, his kid and a lady lawyer."

And he has Manoj Bajpai playing the lead character in the film. But he has yet to finalise the remaining two characters.

Rahul is toying with the idea of casting Sushmita Sen as the lawyer, "but nothing is official yet. It's just a thought," he says.

The film is expected to roll some time next year.
