Ashutosh Gowariker to make romantic comedy
Ashutosh Gowariker is getting ready to make a romantic film that he says requires no research after three intense films Lagaan, Swades and Jodhaa-Akbar. His next project What’s Your Rashi? will star Priyanka Chopra and Harman Baweja.
“In What’s Your Rashi? I don’t have to go into historical details. But a good comedy is a challenge of its own. The process of arriving at the humour is extremely difficult,” says the acclaimed director.
He says he knew he wanted to make a romantic comedy after Jodhaa-Akbar and his ideals were middle of the road films like Frank Capra’s It’s a Wonderful Life, Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Chupke Chupke and Basu Chatterjee’s Baaton Baaton Mein.
