Mumbai, May 5 -- Established banner Rajshri Productions, known best for super-hit family dramas such as Maine Pyar Kiya (1989), Hum Aapke Hain Koun (1994), Hum Saath Saath Hain (1999) is now set to connect with the youth with a detective film.

Kavita Barjatya, (Sooraj Barjatya's sister), who was so far concentrating on producing TV soaps, is now looking to cut into the young market. The banner's first film is titled Samrat and Co and is directed by Kaushik Ghatak.

"Kaushikji narrated a couple of subjects and this one was the exciting. I have known and worked with him since 2004. He has directed most of my TV shows and they were all landmarks.
