Lights, camera, production for Bhajji


By Hindustan Times

Working hard to script a comeback into the Indian team, cricketer Harbhajan Singh has also planned an entry into the world of glamour by producing two Punjabi movies under his banner B&M.

"The shooting will begin, in Punjab and overseas, in May," Harbhajan said on the sidelines of a function where he released a poetry CD - Ik Suneha - from his banner against the growing vulgarity in Punjabi songs. Though the off-spinner did not name any one, his "message" was for all Punjabi singers and songwriters.

On his films, he said both would be comedies. "Apart from superstars of Punjabi films, Bollywood stars will also be signed."

Harbhajan said he accepted his friend Madaan's offer to form B&M (Bhajji and Madaan) because Punjabi films were doing well in not only the state, but also across the country and abroad.

The cricketer, who did a walk-on part in Salman Khan-starrer Mujhse Shaadi Karogi, has no plans of playing hero is his films. "I will be in my films, in guest appearances."

Smeep Kang, who directed the runaway hit Carry on Jatta, will direct both the movies.

Asked if film production was a post-cricket career option, Harbhajan said his focus would always be on cricket.
