Abbas-Mustan keen to make TV show
By Hindustan Times
Director duo Abbas-Mustan, known for their thrillers like Baazigar, Ajnabee and Race, say that they want to make TV shows but their busy film schedule is keeping them from doing so. "TV is a huge industry and reaches out to the entire world. Definitely we should make (a TV serial), we had
thought about it as well. Currently it is tough to find time away from the films we are doing. But we will definitely think about making a TV soap or thriller," said Mustan.
Added Abbas: "We have a lot of subjects that we can do."
The duo were talking at the launch of the TV serial Chhal. The thriller will be aired on Colors channel.
Abbas-Mustan's last film Players, a remake of the Hollywood hit Italian Job bombed at the box office.
Meanwhile some of the recent films like Paan Singh Tomar and Kahaani were praised for their powerful scripts and Abbas-Mustan agree that script comes first.
"Definitely, scripts are always a priority and then the actors and other things. Script is foremost and should be good, whatever the cast be. The subject should be good," Mustan said.
They are currently busy directing Race 2, a sequel to their 2008 hit Race.
