SHEESHA, the production debut of Rama Entertainment, the company formed by the trio of Sunil Saini, Guddu Dhanoa and distributor, Deepak Sharma, has been scheduled for release on January 14. The film directed by Asoo Trikha, starring Neha Dhupia and Sonu Sood (of BHAGATSINGH and YUVA fame) was shot in a record 52-day start-to-finish schedule at Bangkok. "It is an intense love story and the characters are based in Bangkok," says Sunil Saini. 

According to Saini, the company has lined up some ambitious projects in the next few months, all of which will be completed in a stipulated period of time. The second in the line-up is a film directed by Ashwini Chaudhary of DHOOP fame. The big project from the banner is a film to be directed by Rituparna Ghosh. "It will be one with a massive budget and big stars in it," says Sunil Saini.

However Saini has abandoned the idea of going ahead with the film on the post 9/11 tragedies, that he was contemplating for a long time. "The project was no doubt on my mind and I was looking forward to making it but I decided not to go ahead with it for several reasons," Saini explains.
