Konkona Sen Sharma opposite Paresh Rawal in Sanjay Chhel's Fantastic
There can never be a better title for a film than Fantastic when you have ace actors like Paresh Rawal, Konkona Sen Sharma, and Javed Jaffrey coming together for it. Sanjay Chhel announces his next film, Fantastic, which is being produced by Percept Pictures.
"Fantastic is a romantic-comedy film. The film has a deadly combination of some great actors, namely, Paresh Rawal, Konkona Sen Sharma, Neha Dhupia, Rahul Khanna, and Javed Jaffrey", says Sanjay Chhel, the director of the film. The most intriguing fact about the film is that Konkona will be paired opposite Paresh Rawal. "Konkona will be playing a role of a typical woman from today's society and is paired opposite Pareshji, that's not all; she also gets paired opposite Rahul Khanna, who plays a millionaire in the film, and opposite Javed Jaffrey as well. Neha Dhupia's character in the film is also something to watch out for. Rahul will shed his image of a simple look as he will be showcased as a flamboyant and maverick kind a character, his looks will be terrific and stylized; in short he will look different."
So what is Fantastic all about? "Of course you do not expect me to tell you the story now. But I'll tell you this, it revolves around the society, page 3, lifestyle etc. I have written both the screenplay and lyrics for the songs as well", says Sanjay. This is part of the 3-film deal with the Percept Pictures right? "Yah, I will be doing two other films with them one is an action comedy and the other is a sarcastically comedy flick. At present the films are still under scripting stages so there's nothing more to say to it."
Fantastic is scheduled to go on floors by August end; meanwhile Sanjay Chhel also is geared up with Maan Gaye Mughall-E-Azam, which releases on August 22.
