Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra to direct Imran Khan next
Filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra is going to be super busy for the next four years. Between ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ and ‘Mirza Sahiba’ — the latter will introduce star-son Harshvardhan Kapoor — Rakeysh will direct a magnum opus with his neighbour, Imran Khan.
Sources say that the film is on the lines of Indiana Jones, with the storyline revolving around the discovery of the submerged city of Dwarka.
A decade ago, a marine archaeologists’ team that was cleaning up the sea near Jamnagar in Gujarat, found clues that led to the discovery of Dwarka, believed to be Lord Krishna’s kingdom, according to Hindu mythology.
Our source adds, “The film, a first-of-its-kind in India, is being thoroughly researched. It will be one of the big-budget projects of 2014.”
