After the musical hit Aashiqui, Vishesh Films is all set to repeat history with its latest offering Jashn with Adhyayan Suman as the lead. When Bollywood Hungama spoke to Adhyayan (who is now touted to be the latest blue eyed boy of the Bhatts), he confirmed the news but refused to comment anything further about the film.
Speaking about the film, Mukesh Bhatt said, "Jashn will be directed by the duo of Raksha Mistry and Hasnain Hyderabadwala (of The Train fame) and will be produced by us. Let me also clarify that we are yet to finalize the leading lady and its definitely not Sonal Chauhan (as reported in certain sections of the media). This film will be the biggest musical by Mukesh Films till date. I am confident of the film's music and can easily assure you that it will be far more superior to even Jannat. With Jashn, we are introducing a Jaipur based sensational music director called Sharib. And mark my words that he will be the biggest music director in Bollywood within a mere span of one year! He is one guy whose tunes comes from the marrow of his bones. It's after a long time, that I have come across a 'Pure Musician'."
When asked about the story of the film, Mukesh said, "It's a story of a 19 year old boy Akash (played by Adhyayan), and his ambition to become a rockstar in life. He is a part of this band called 'Jashn'. Beyond this, I cannot reveal anything." When we spoke to film's director Raksha, she said, "Though I cannot divulge anything at this moment, all I can tell you is that we are genuinely looking for a fresh face opposite Adhyayan because the character in the film demands one. I would also add that Jashn is basically a love story with a musical backdrop."
Elaborating on Adhyayan's role, reliable sources close to the Bhatt camp said he is playing a budding musician who is initially careless towards life, and feels that getting a break in music is a cakewalk. Its only when he faces the harsh realities of life, does he realize how wrong he was. After that, he becomes tad serious about his career decision to make it big as a musician. In a nutshell, the film is basically about his pursuit to success and happiness, whilst becoming a musician. Sources also added that in order to do full justice to the role, Adhyayan is leaving no stone unturned by religiously attending guitar classes for three hours everyday, followed by rigorous acting sessions! The hunt for a girl is also on in the role of his sister.
Lastly, Mukesh Bhatt signed off saying, "I am glad that T-Series got the music rights of Jashn, as they also happen to be the same music company who had earlier released Aashiqui. The shooting for shooting Jashn will begin next month and we are looking at a March 2009 release."
