Mumbai, May 18 -- While Bombay Talkies, an anthology film consisting of four short films by renowned directors such as Anurag Kashyap, Karan Johar, Zoya Akhtar and Dibakar Banerjee, recently commemorated 100 years of Indian cinema, another director Sangeeth Sivan is busy preparing to pay tribute to one of the finest actors Bollywood has seen.
The director's next, titled Cheers, pays homage to Dharmendra and stars the veteran actor, along with his sons Sunny and Bobby Deol.
Sangeeth, who is also the director of Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 (YPD 2), which has the Deols in the lead, is a fan of Dharmendra himself and believes that the star deserves a film to celebrate his success in the industry. "Cheers is meant to commemorate Dharamji's 50 years in the Hindi film industry. He has given many hits to the industry and has an immense fan-following even today. Dharamji deserves a film like that," says Sangeeth.
