Ace Director Priyadarshan Back to Bollywood
Ace director Priyadarshan whose last film in Hindi was Rangrezz released in 2013 is all set to make his Bollywood return.
The veteran director opened his mind and spoke about what he intends to do from now on in a chat with reporters.
He said, “I have lined up two projects in Bollywood. One is with Akshay Kumar and the second one is for Arjun Kapoor”.
The director, who was in the state capital to announce the launch of Janam TV, the latest Malayalam TV channel that will go on air April 19, in which he is the chairman, added that, “Again this year, I have one film in Malayalam and it will be with Mohanlal”.
While sharing the reason for staying away from Bollywood for so long. The director said, “Yes, then came things in my personal life as my wife Lissy has filed a divorce case. All in all, I was disturbed. Moreover, my stars also were not that favourable.”
He futher added, “Now, I think, there has been a change in that and hence I decided to get back to full-time work”.
After his debut in 1978, the director has made 88 films in various South Indian languages and also in Bollywood.
Priyadarshan said, “I have now finalised a script for my Mohanlal film which will go on the floors shortly. Then I realised that this can be used for my next Bollywood project with Akshay. So if everything is fine, both these projects would be done side by side”.
He also said that the second project that he has in mind is in its infancy and would be a good one with Arjun.
He concluded, “So 2015 is going to be a hectic one for me and I am ready to get back to what I know best and Janam TV will also take a bit of my time”.
