Filmmaker Subhash Ghai has finally locked a release date for his new movie Kaanchi - it will hit the screens April 11. The film, which stars Ghai's latest find Mishti and actor Kartik Aryan along with veterans Mithun Chakraborty and Rishi Kapoor, is about inner power of a woman who represents millions of suppressed youth against injustice in the country, said a statement issued by the filmmaker's banner Mukta Arts.
The film is directed and produced by Ghai, and its musical score is done by Ismail Darbar and Salim-Suleiman with lyrics by Irshad Kamil.
Ghai, known for movies like Ram Lakhan, Saudagar, Khalnayak, Pardes and Taal, was earlier in no hurry to announce a release date for Kaanchi - a mistake, he said, he had made with his last film Yuvvraaj.
The filmmaker, who has earlier discovered talents like Manisha Koirala, Jackie Shroff and Mahima Chowdhary, is extremely upbeat about Kaanchi and about launching Bengali girl Mishti in Bollywood.
