Rohan Sippy certainly has a lot happening for him. As a co-producer of Chandni Chowk To China and someone who has contributed from the scratch till the execution of this biggie with writer Sridhar Raghavan and director Nikhil Advani, he has been waiting with a bated breath to see the kind of response that this film generates. His other production, The President Is Coming would eventually be coming on 9th January, just a week before Chandni Chowk To China and in the interim he is counting days, as the 16th January release of the Akshay Kumar starrer is just 30 days away.

Meanwhile, he is getting groundwork in place for his Abhishek Bachchan film that will go on floors in April 2009. What's the title of the film? "Well, sometimes the most difficult part about writing a film is coming up with that elusive title. So yes, as you would have guessed it by now, we don't have any title yet. Heck, we are yet to finalise a girl as well", quips Rohan as he continues to get good feelers for his biggest film till date Chandni Chowk To China.

"Yes, CC2C is my biggest till date. However, now it's time to get back into direction as well, lest I start loosing it all. I have to get my hands dirty fast and am looking forward to calling the shots again", winks Rohan who insists that this film now holds top priority in his return to direction more than three years after Bluffmaster.

What is the film all about? "Well, since it's a Sridhar Raghavan's script, you can expect a lot of twists and turns. It is very different from what I have done before in Bluffmaster or Kuch Naa Kaho. I had an enjoyable experience while working on the script with Sridhar", is all that Rohan is willing to talk about his next venture.

But Rohan, this is hardly any information being shared about the film! At the least, he can reveal the genre, isn't it? He laughs, "I have a hard time to decide the genre of even Bluffmaster, years after its release. Seriously, I can't put one tag against this film. It is hard to explain."

He concludes on a serious note, "I am sure that there will be something extraordinary when we put this film together. When Abhishek and I did Bluffmaster together, we had embarked on doing something really crazy and different. You would see the same streak in our next film together as well."
